The Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Central Nassau (UUCCN) in Garden City is a caring community that emphasizes our common humanity as we face life’s changes. You are welcome whether you are gay or straight, black or white, rich or poor, young or old. You are welcome regardless of your religious or non-religious background. Unitarian Universalism is non-creedal, which means there are no required beliefs about God, the after-life, or other religious questions. Because of this, our activities and programs are designed to support an open search for truth and meaning in an environment that values doubt and passion. With the emphasis off of creed, we like to focus on deed. We uphold the wisdom we obtain from many religions to “do unto others as we would have them do unto ourselves” while at the same time rejecting superstition and bigotry. Many of our members are interfaith couples that have found UUCCN to be an excellent environment for raising their children to understand right and wrong, learn about various religious traditions, and give them the tools to make their own decisions about what is important in life. The emphasis on deed also motivates our social action programs, which range from providing food and other necessities for the poor, to beach cleanups, to anti-racism activities, to participation in the MS-Walk and the Lupus Walk. We are committed to ideals of compassion, justice, and peace both here on Long Island and throughout the world. UUCCN’s doors are open. We invite you to come and visit with us.
Dave Coddington, President, UUCCN
