This is who we are.

We're about INCLUSIVITY and OPENNESs.

At UUTC, what you see is what you get: a warm, welcoming congregation that embraces and CELEBRATES diversity ...

of thought, belief (and non-belief), background, lifestyle, and life experiences. We acknowledge and respect the inherent worth and dignity of every person, and practice justice, equity, and compassion in human relations. It's our acceptance of DIFFERENCES that creates and sustains a vibrant community. 

We're about being intentional in our personal and spiritual GROWTH.

We strive to cultivate a stimulating environment that encourages EXPLORATION, questioning, and dialogue ...

that can bring fresh perspectives and NEW WAYS of seeing. Through a variety of groups and programs for adults and youth, we support a free and responsible search for truth and MEANING.

We're about DOING.

The Unitarian Universalist commitment to the goal of a world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all means that we GET INVOLVED ... 

in social ACTION, both locally and globally. Our respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part means we strive to LIVE our principles in our daily lives, and to GIVE of our time, talents, and resources as we're able.

Why do I attend UUTC? I go because I worry a lot at night, particularly after reading or watching the news, about the future of our increasingly diverse world and individuals’ difficulty in showing empathy and compassion to each other. I believe in the principles and purposes of UU, with the emphasis on the “inherent worth and dignity of every person” and the belief in the Golden Rule that we should treat our neighbors as ourselves. When I visit with the UU community, I see these principles enacted amidst a diverse group of individuals and become hopeful that humankind will not only survive, but will prevail. When I am hopeful, I sleep easier at night, and when I wake up the next morning, I have more courage and understanding of how to be a better person. And that is what I want and need in a spiritual community.
