Addressing local needs
Due to COVID-19 concerns, the doors to our fellowship building are closed for now. However, we endeavor to remain an online close-knit community with a passion for Unitarian Universalism. We intend to open the building as soon as the health and well-being of our friends and members is best served.
Once open we will again offer a large variety of classes, clubs, meeting, and other opportunities during the year:
The Men’s Club
The Book Club
The Woman’s Circle
Children’s Sunday School,
We are a social group as well as spiritual and we miss being together. This too shall pass. Keep active on Facebook and our Web page to find out when and how we will open in the future.
We miss you!

What Is Unitarian Universalism?
If you'd like to get a better idea of what Unitarian Universalism is and whether our way of responsibly searching for truth and meaning might be for you, this welcome written by our Minister Emeritus, Rev. Dr. John M. Higgins, gives a quick preview:
"Welcome to this place.
This is a place where no revealed truths are promoted and no scripture or human being accepted as infallible. It is a place for searching for truth, but we are believers.
We believe in intellectual freedom, we believe in justice, we believe in compassion, and for concern for each other and for the whole world. We believe in commitment to those ideals which make us active in the struggle for human dignity.
We are Unitarian Universalists."
Who is Friendship Fellowship at Pineda?

We welcome diversity of belief and lifestyle because everyone deserves the stimulation of an intellectually active, emotionally supportive and socially conscious community.
- The inherent worth and dignity of every living person
- Justice, equity, and compassion in human relations
