Welcome

We welcome you to our liberal religious home.  We embrace many faiths, accept and celebrate all genders and sexual orientations, work to deepen spirituality, build community and make a positive difference in the world.  We hope you find much about our congregation and faith here and that you will visit our meeting house soon.

Due to COVID-19 the UUCSF Meetinghouse is currently closed.  A varied series of events are being held virtually during the week and Sunday Services are broadcast via Zoom at 10:30 am.  Please open the Upcoming Events tab for more information.

  • Our 10:30 am Sunday morning worship services continue online.  You can join in two ways:
    • With experts recommending Physical Distancing, the UUCSF is moving all of our meetings and programs online. We have closed our meetinghouse to all gatherings, meetings, and events.
    • But we can’t let ourselves become isolated. Now is the time for us to practice Community Care.
    • Out of concern for our members and friends, the UUCSF Leadership has decided to suspend all in-person gatherings until further notice. This includes Sunday morning worship services and all meetings.
    • If you are connecting to Zoom for the first time, here’s a helpful video to get you started.

MEET OUR MINISTER

Rev. Kimberly Quinn Johnson has served as minister of the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of the South Fork since 2015. She has embraced the East End of Long Island as well as her congregation.  Reverend Johnson is a sought after fixture in our community.  Her perspective, insights and actions have led to social justice initiatives and increased UUs influence in the area.  She is a welcomed proactive force for change.

Reverend Johnson is a rising star within the larger Unitarian Universalist denomination.  She wears many leadership hats.  She serves on the Organizing Collective Board for Black Lives of Unitarian Universalism. Reverend Johnson is co-chair of the UUA Appointments Committee and on the Board of Trustees of the UU Women’s Federation.  Another of Reverend Johnson’s passions is serving our UU youth.  She is a leader with the UU College of Social Justice.  She hopes to spend her summer working with youth through UU Summer Seminary or Thrive: leadership school for UU youth of color.  Lastly, Rev. Johnson was selected to co-present at the prestigious Berry Street Essay, the longest running lecture series in the United States on its 200th anniversary in 2020.

Reverend Johnson brings creativity, enthusiasm and passion to our Meetinghouse. The core of her ministry is faith formation—creating spaces and experiences for people to connect to the sacred, and to express that connection in the world. Reverend Johnson challenges congregants with theories and practices from many sources.  This facilitates the exchange and exploration of our knowledge which encourages a deeper understanding and commitment to act.

Rev. Johnson has a wide range of experiences which fostered her passion and expertise for racial justice work. Earlier in her career, Reverend Johnson worked as a union organizer with the United Auto Workers. She also taught Women’s and Gender Studies at New Jersey City University. Rev Johnson is a graduate of Meadville Lombard Theological School, where she was awarded Faculty Award for Religious Leadership. Before coming to the UUCSF, she was the Intern Minister at the Fourth Universalist Society, on the upper west side of Manhattan.

FIRST TIME VISITOR

We are a welcoming congregation and hope we convey that warmth.  You will be greeted at our door and asked to sign our guest book, given an order of service, a name tag and some conversation that makes you feel comfortable.

Some logistics:

  • Services begin at 10:30 at our Meetinghouse
  • Services usually last an hour followed by hospitality in our social hall
  • Our Minister is Reverend Kimberly Quinn Johnson
  • Dress is casual and comfortable — “Come as you are”
  • There is a Religious Exploration program available for children
  • Children join us for the beginning of worship, followed by class after the First Message.  They are always welcome to stay in service with their family. 
  • Parking is plentiful in our own lot
  • We are a small but vibrant congregation and a typical Sunday has 35-50 attendees
  • Please contact our Minister with any questions. minister@uucsf.org or 631 537-0132

We hope you will find a connection with us.  Our services offer a medley of experiences and affirming activities, including inspirational music, thoughtful readings, pointed commentary from our minister, as well as lay leaders and “Candles of Community,” where one can briefly share a joy or a concern.  Our services offer such variety that we encourage visitors to come more than once to get a true picture of who we are and what is available.
