Learn About Who We Are

The Midcoast Unitarian Universalist Fellowship (MUUF) is a vibrant, supportive, and welcoming liberal religious community in Maine’s beautiful Midcoast region, incorporated as an independent church by the Unitarian Universalist Association in 1982. We were founded in the Unitarian Universalist faith, endorsing our individual search for truth and meaning, while actively engaging in activities that are grounded in our Unitarian Universalist principles.

Beginning as a small group with a common goal of creating a welcoming place for spiritual exploration and fulfillment, the Fellowship first gathered in the historic Town Hall in Edgecomb, Maine, where it continued to meet for over two decades. The Fellowship later relocated to beautiful downtown Damariscotta, where we are now centrally located for members from throughout the Midcoast, including the Boothbay and Pemaquid peninsulas.

Social Justice and Community Involvement

It is MUUF’s goal to be an integral part of our wider community, and to promote and support social justice issues. We give voice to our UU values in the public square through active engagement with the Maine UU State Advocacy Network (MUUSAN). We bear witness to critical social justice issues by participating in rallies and vigils.

We provide a Community Supper several times a year, and on a monthly basis, we support various nonprofit organizations in our area with our “share the plate” program, distributing monetary donations collected during the service. Read more …
