Mission: In support of the goals of our church, we invite personal transformation through opportunities to deepen, connect, and engage to nurture lives faithful to our Unitarian Universalist values.

Our offerings are designed to enhance faith formation in a Unitarian Universalist context. Offerings are intended to stimulate our sense of community and enrich the spiritual and intellectual lives of JUC members and friends by helping to:

  • seek greater understanding of Unitarian Universalist theology and heritage;
  • develop cultural competency in our members and friends; and
  • cultivate our individual and collective spiritual practices and sense of well-being.
