A group of young people, while collecting canned goods for a food bank, discovers holiday traditions of other cultures. Through their experiences, they grow to understand each other better, and learn that peace, joy, and hope are holiday traditions that can be shared by all.

A Message From Our Ministers
Throughout our county, people are looking for a place to connect with others and a place to be seen as a whole person. Finding these connections in a world of quick fixes and throw-away relationships is not easy.
We provide those places of deep connection –where people can connect to themselves, to others who hold similar experiences, and to efforts to address real problems faced by our neighbors and our planet. Increasingly, we also learn from the connections which can be made across difference. And within our community, you can receive inspiration, new ideas, affirmation and an embodiment of how we live together in the wider human family.
For more than 60 years, MDUUC has been a beacon in the community and a strong place for people of all generations—our children. We haven’t always done it the same way and we are gifted with a Living Tradition that changes with the new needs of our community. Come be part of what we are creating together!
