The Unitarian Universalist
Congregation of Queens
Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Queens 147-54 Ash Ave Flushing NY 11355
The Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Queens (UUCQ) represents 107 years of Unitarian Universalism (UU) in the Borough of Queens. We are very proud of our history and achievements and excited about sharing our message of peace and spiritual growth with future generations. Our community arose from the merger of two churches, the Unitarian Church of Flushing and the Hollis Unitarian Church, in 2006. We meet in the historic Flushing church, on the corner of 149th St. and Ash Ave. The congregation currently has 53 members.
We are entering a dynamic and exciting new phase in our evolution. We are redefining our role in the world and attracting new members from a variety of spiritual, racial, ethnic, and social backgrounds. We are diversifying the array of services and programs that we offer to our congregation and to our community. These services and programs have included a summit on immigration issues, a community kitchen that serves a monthly free meal to the local day-laborers and neighborhood residents. We are expanding our fundraising efforts and strengthening our financial stewardship.
SOCIAL JUSTICE COMMITTEE
The Social Justice Committee is the community outreach arm of UUCQ. Its purpose is to put into action the UU value of justice, equity, and compassion in human relations. Its members are volunteers from the congregation. Since May 2010, the Social Justice Committee has operated the UUCQ Community Kitchen, which serves a free, nutritious lunch on the second Saturday of every month. Attendance ranges from 30 to 55 people.
