Many paths. One welcoming and diverse community.

Green Sanctuary


From the UUCOV campus to our homes and from our pulpit to our lifespan education classrooms, we strive to live our seventh principle "respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part." Our sanctuary is solar powered and our campus is landscaped with native and Florida Friendly landscaping. We engage our youth in learning about the environment and how to take care of our Earth. We provide timely forums and seminars to our adult congregants as well as the public at large on sustainability, climate change, and environmental justice. We also celebrate the Earth with our annual Earth Day Intergenerational Service.
