"We are located in northeast Portland, and offer activities to restore your optimism, find your joy, and explore your own spirituality in a supportive environment. Visit one of our services; explore our programs and activities. This is a loving community of one hundred members intent on making our lives and the lives of those around us more meaningful."

First Unitarian Church, Downtown Portland

"A liberal spiritual community in Portland since 1866. We are a large congregation with a wide range of activities, extensive music program, and a religious education program for all ages. Our Mission is to create a welcoming community of diverse individuals; to promote love, reason, and freedom in religion; to foster life-long spiritual growth; and to act for social justice."

Worship services are held weekly at the Rockford Grange in Hood River, and we offer an active religious education program for children and teens. Members live out their commitment to Unitarian Universalist principals by engaging in a wide variety of social justice activities throughout the community."

South Park UU Fellowship, West Linn

"SPUUF is a lay led, informal, independent fellowship in the West Linn/Oregon City area. We are a warm, open and friendly community of people. Our small size allows for a connectedness among members that has fostered a strong sense of belonging, family and community. We also have a casual atmosphere that many find a comfortable alternative to a more formal Unitarian church. We are also growing our membership, and are open to interested guests at any time."

UU Church of Vancouver, Vancouver

The congregation is actively involved in the community at large. Our current Whole Church projects include Hunger & Homelessness and Green Sanctuary."

"We are a midsize, vibrant, and multi-generational congregation serving individuals and families who appreciate a liberal religious environment. We provide religious education from preschool through high school, and adult religious education that includes courses on spiritual development, as well as covenant groups. Many strong ministries lead our efforts towards social justice, climate change, and religious exploration."

Wy'east UU Fellowship, NE Portland

"We are a friendly, welcoming, neighborhood congregation. We're large enough to include sizable groups of children, young adults, middle-aged adults and seniors and small enough to gather for potluck after services once each month. We have a half-time minister, quality Religious Education programs for nursery through middle school, and a variety of small groups. Wy'east is active in social justice concerns, and members of the congregation regularly volunteer in the community. Our location at the Hollywood Senior Center offers additional opportunities for connection and collaboration. Our children are with us for the first part of worship every week, and our DIY ethos and intergenerational spirit make us a welcoming space for all. If you'd like to come and truly feel a part of a worshiping community, we welcome you to Wy'east."
