Frequently Asked Questions

We’d love for you to join us, but you and your family may have questions that have been frequently asked by visitors in the past. Below, find some answers to these commonly posed questions. Otherwise, you can email one of our Board of Trustee officers, or give us a jingle!

Am I a Unitarian Universalist without actually knowing it?

Take the Beliefnet Survey to find out.

What do you do during sunday services?

Our Sunday services focus or expand upon the seven Unitarian Universalist principles. We usually have readings, songs, and a speaker. Sometimes our services are focused on an activity. During the service we provide a time for sharing joys and sorrows.

What is your Covid masking policy?

Visitors to Skagit Unitarian Universalist Fellowship are required to wear masks during Sunday service, and to be fully vaccinated. Masks are optional during coffee hour and other gatherings.

Speakers and Ministers can choose to participate in person at our location in Mount Vernon or via Zoom. If they participate via Zoom, they will be projected onto the screen in our physical location at Diversity Hall as well as online via Zoom and YouTube streaming service. If they participate in person they will speak from the lectern in Diversity Hall, and will be expected to be fully vaccinated and wear a mask. If they prefer, they may perform their own rapid test within 2 hours of the service; and if the test is negative they may speak from the lectern without a mask.

Is there a dress code?

There is no dress code — generally dress is Northwest casual which can range from dressy or conservative to T-shirts and jeans. Wear what you are comfortable in — you will be welcomed!

What are the facilities like?

The Fellowship building is single story with a wheelchair ramp. Two handicapped parking spaces are available on either side of the ramp.

General parking is available on the north and east sides of the building and across from the entry. You may also park in the spaces adjoining the Post Office building to the east.

What do Unitarian Universalists believe?

Unitarian Universalism is a liberal religion that encompasses many faith traditions. It includes people who identify themselves as Christians, Jews, Buddhists, Hindus, Pagans, Atheists, Agnostics, Humanists and others. As there is no official Unitarian Universalist creed, we are free to search for truth on many paths.

We uphold the free search for truth. We will not be bound by a statement of belief. We do not ask anyone to subscribe to a creed. Ours is a free faith.

Unitarian Universalism embraces all sexual and racial identities.

Although we uphold shared principles, individual Unitarian Universalists have varied beliefs about everything from scripture to rituals to God.

Do you have accommodations for the hearing & vision impaired?

We use the closed captioning service provided by Zoom, which is projected onto a large LCD screen. We also provide lyrics to the songs on this screen as much as possible. With short notice we can usually have written copies of sermons available. Large-type hymnals are available.

Do you have wheelchair access?

The Fellowship building is single story with a wheelchair ramp. Two handicapped parking spaces are available on either side of the ramp.

Do you have a children's religious education?

We do not have Children’s Religious Education Program. We invite families to enjoy the services together. There is a table at the back for those that prefer to doodle or draw during the service. There is also a small classroom with toys and books where people can watch the service on Zoom or listen via the speaker installed in the room.

Do you offer services on Zoom?

All of our services are offered via Zoom and the link is sent out in our weekly newsletter. Please email to be added to the newsletter list. You can also listen to past services via our Podbean page.
