Six years ago, I took a class on the Enneagram through the Adult Ed program here at Mission Peak. I had a "spiritual awakening", and it changed my life. I joined Mission Peak, retired from teaching math at Ohlone College, and started serious study of the Enneagram. I found the Enneagram to be so meaningful to me that I went on to become a certified Enneagram teacher and Chair of the Adult Education Committee. I can't guarantee that an Adult Ed class will change your life as dramatically as mine has been, but I do know that you will meet wonderful people in these classes and have opportunities to grow both spiritually and personally.

We offer a variety of classes, and welcome both students and teachers. We are currently accepting proposals for the Fall quarter. Please consider joining us this Fall as a teacher or student or even both!

This Sunday's Service - June 26, 2016

Depreciative Inquiry
Just as we can be our own best allies, we can also be our own worst enemies. Come learn about our strange inner relationship and how to evolve the story you tell yourself about who you are.

Leading the service will be Rev. Jeremy D. Nickel and Worship Associate Mark Rahman. Music will be provided by Eric Niessner. 
Volunteers Needed for RE

Black & White
Black & White Auction - It's Time to Start Planning!! 

November may seem very far away at this point, but from an event planning point of view it's right around the corner and we need to have an extremely successful event this year to help out with our budget deficit.  If you are interested in helping to plan the Black & White Auction, please contact Jen King ASAP (She will be heading it up again this year).  Also, start thinking about what services you'd like to donate for the auction and/or what items (jewelry, cards, jams, pottery, knitted items, etc.) you would like to donate for the boutique and start creating them now!  Jen would also like to hear any ideas you may have for additions/changes to the Black & White Auction format. Let's get excited and make this year's event the biggest and best ever!
Sunday Services Team
Sunday Services Team
Our congregation's Sunday Services are the heart of our community. We are losing several members who have been instrumental in making sure our Sunday worships happen. We need all members to sign up to be an alternate for one of the tasks on Sunday. Colleen Arnold will be outside the service this Sunday with signup sheets, so please consider whether you would be able to hand out Orders of Service, set up chairs, make coffee, etc. We anticipate needing alternates 3-4 times per year, but if enough people sign up, it could be even less often. And a great big THANK YOU to those of you who are already doing these tasks monthly. You can also e-mail Colleen at colleenag@sbcglobal.net.

Who We Are

Mission Peak Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Fremont was founded in 1993. We are a member congregation of the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) headquartered in Boston, Massachusetts.


Mission Peak members determine its policies, choose its minister, and support it financially.


We affirm and promote these UUA Principles and Purposes:

  • The inherent worth and dignity of every person
  • Justice, equity and compassion in human relations
  • Acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth in our congregations
  • A free and responsible search for truth and meaning
  • The right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in our society at large
  • The goal of world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all
  • Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part

We invite you to join us and add your commitment to ours. Mission Peak is a living and changing congregation, responsive to the spiritual needs of its members. With the leadership of our minister, we search for ways to fulfill ourselves as individuals and as a community. Joining us is a commitment to this process.
