The Unitarian Universalists of Geneva are a community of curious and compassionate thinkers and doers. We gather to explore and be reminded of what really matters in life through discourse with friends who respect our personal journey. We are diverse in faith, ethnicity, history and spirituality but aligned our desire to make a difference for good. We recharge through not only discourse, but also through song and the lighting of a candle, experiencing awe and connection. We also challenge each other to live our values through social action initiatives.
We offer our children the opportunity to develop their personal moral structure and spiritual path through socially conscious activities and studies of world philosophies, traditions and religions.
Come, reconnect with your spiritual side on your own terms, and in the loving and mindful embrace of a vibrant community.

UUG is collecting donated items on Sunday 22 April for a Vide Grenier -- Garage Sale to take place on Sunday 6 May, 2018!
VIDE GRENIER / BROCANTE / RUMMAGE SALE – Sunday, 6 May, Gex, France
What’s so good about “spring cleaning”? Well, it’s a wonderful opportunity to clear out unwanted items and give them a chance to be reused by someone else. It’s also a great way to support UUG’s social action work, especially Jhamtse Gatsal Children's Community in India, through our fundraiser vide grenier/brocante/rummage sale in Gex, France, on Sunday 6 May.
This request has two parts. First, please bring any donations (household items, sports equipment, books, clothing/shoes, etc.) to our gathering on bring by Sunday 22 April. If you are unable to come but have something to contribute, just let us know and we’ll try to make arrangements to pick it up.
Second, we will need volunteers on Sunday 6 May the day of the sale to help set up, sell, and then pack up (any leftover items will be given away unless otherwise specified). The sale usually takes place rain or shine, unless it is absolutely pouring.
We look forward to the involvement of as many people as possible. Please see here for a doodle poll indicating your availability to volunteer:
