What is VUUMAC?

For 39 years UUMAC has met once a year to build a beloved community & deepen our Unitarian Universalist faith. Please join us in celebrating our 40th anniversary with VUUMAC 2021. 

Everyone who attends UUMAC always wishes it lasted longer, and now that wish has come true! We’ll have a fast-paced welcoming event on Saturday, July 10th to meet each other. Then July 11th our program officially starts with an opening ceremony, followed by our first worship service.

For a total of three weeks, July 11-31, through workshops, dancing, worship, songs, laughter, and much more, we will cultivate this year's theme of Communities Within Community, led by Paula Cole Jones, Dr. Elías Ortega, and our dedicated staff team, all beloved members of UUMAC. 


Over the decades UUMAC has become many things to many people: a spiritual retreat, time for reflection and celebration, a reunion with friends, a time to revel in a community of fun-loving and like-hearted people of all ages. From the Talent Show and Open Mic, to sharing our stories and experiences during the lay-led evening vespers services, UUMAC has many ways for us to connect and grow together. Events for children, youth, and adults will happen throughout the three weeks as we build our community of communities.
