Welcome to a community of diverse, compassionate, inquisitive souls seeking to serve, grow, connect, celebrate life and make the world a better place. We affirm people of all ages, abilities, racial, ethnic, class and faith backgrounds, sexual orientations and gender identities and expressions. Join us on the journey of inner depth, peace, sustainable living, and social justice!
Our religious community fosters meaningful and respectful relationships among people of all ages, abilities and backgrounds. Our welcome reaches beyond the congregation to include people from all walks of life.
We connect with a larger meaning and purpose in our worship services. Our worship life is diverse, joyful, multigenerational, and personal; it involves our hearts, minds, spirits and bodies, and inspires us to reach for our best selves.
We work actively to eliminate oppression and create a sustainable, just, peaceful and compassionate world in partnership with other organizations and congregations, as well as among ourselves. Our worship, spiritual life and caring community encourage and equip us to do this work. We share the good news of our faith and promote Unitarian Universalism in our wider community.
We are encouraged to seek our own spiritual truths. Our lives are enriched by learning our Unitarian Universalist faith and practices. We grow by sharing ideas from wisdom both sacred and secular.
We embrace an ethic of service through our shared ministry. We joyfully answer the call to minister to one another and to the world, and we engage in shared leadership of our congregation.
We share our time, talents and money generously to care for our church and its staff and facilities and for causes beyond our congregation that help us live our values.
Split the Plate is one of UUCW's programs of outreach and generosity. Each month we give half of all undesignated offering monies to a non-profit organization as a way to help us live our Unitarian Universalist values and serve our community. Our Split the Plate recipient for February is the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI).Read more...
Imagine the Unitarian Universalist Church West of the future: a congregation with a building as open and flexible as our theology, as welcome and warm as our spirit, a building with mechanical systems that are healthy and efficient, office and meeting spaces that help our ministries hum along, and a floor plan accessible to everyone! We're describing UUCW’s Build 2020.
For the past two years, UUCW has engaged in a Holistic Study process to discern what needs to happen to transform our building into one that more fully supports our ministry and mission. We worked with Workshop Architects on that process, which resulted in a preliminary architectural plan. Click here to view the Holistic Study presentation.Read more...
