You are hereOur Building
The Unitarian Universalist Congregation of the Quad Cities on Eastern Avenue was built in 1958 by Lundeen & Toline, architects from Moline. The contemporary design is enhanced by the almost six acres of landscaping. On Easter Sunday, 1959, the congregation gathered for the first service in the new building, which hugged the hillside and soared toward the sky.
In 1980, the church added a lounge and additional storage space as well as remodeling the kitchen. In 1997, the congregation funded and carried out a major improvement project which almost doubled the size of the building, providing additional class/meeting rooms, storage spaces, handicapped accessible restrooms and an elevator. Gere/Dismer Architects of Rock Island designed both additions, superbly integrating them with the original building.
The church provides its members and the community with exceptional facilities for services and functions. Both the lower level and the main level are accessible from the outside without stairs and an interior elevator between floors is available. Meeting space and rest rooms are plentiful. The lower level accommodates religious-education programs, a nursery, and food and beverage functions. The main level provides the ‘great hall’ for Sunday services and other celebrations, for art and culture functions, and for general fun-activities. On the main level, you will also find a ‘Community Room’ available to non-commercial organizations that strive for betterment.
Church members are proud of the recent endeavors to further the ‘green revolution’. Geo-thermal heating and cooling, thermal windows, and energy conserving lights have been installed. Members strive to promote recycling, informed consumption, and environment friendly landscape maintenance.
