Jefferson Unitarian Church serves three important roles for us: community, connection, and inspiration. We started attending services shortly after moving to Colorado and felt right at home in the progressive environment; we couldn’t think of a better community in which to raise our two young children. The weekly sermons not only help keep us connected to fellow members and to our values of love and acceptance, but also inspire us to step outside our comfort zone to help make a difference in the world around us.
We feel a sense of acceptance and belonging when we step through the doors at JUC. There are so many opportunities for us to grow spiritually, intellectually and emotionally and be of service inside and outside our church walls. We love being in a community with such thoughtful, curious and caring people.
Bob grew up in this neck of the woods, moved away for college, and we moved back in 1994. The relationships at JUC have made this our true home. Our kids, now grown, were often the last ones to leave on a Sunday. With JUCers, we feel a deep and holy friendship. We journey through it all together.
Grateful! No better way to describe my feelings about JUC.
After moving back to the Denver area in 1993, it was a priority to find a community that aligned with my values, provided a meaningful worship experience, and encouragement to explore my own spiritual path. JUC has been all that and more.
The ministers have always challenged us to be our best selves, opportunities for personal and spiritual growth are many, and the friendships I have found are among my most meaningful relationships.
