Please read “Words From the Minister,” which contain a letter from Rev. Danny R. Reed of the First Unitarian Church in Charleston. We too grieve for the families of the victims and members of Emanuel AME church.
Welcome to the Unitarian Universalist Church of Las Cruces, a progressive, diverse and caring church community. Our families come in all types and sizes and express the diversity of the American experience – singles, retired, young, old, and in between – single parents, partners with children, grandparents, physically challenged, straight and gay – we appreciate all of the gifts they bring to our religious community. We are a Welcoming Congregation.
1st Sunday of the month after the 2nd service (NOTE: Inquiry Sunday will resume in September)
Reverend Sue Redfern-Campbell has initiated a program to help religious seekers gain a better understanding of Unitarian Universalism. If you are a casual visitor or someone in search of a spiritual home and have questions about Unitarian Universalism or the Las Cruces church, Reverend Sue invites you to join her on the first Sunday of the month. You will have the opportunity to meet with her and one of our lay leaders in the minister’s office after the second service ends at 11:30 am. Each month, this opportunity will be announced from the pulpit and you will be able to join a lay leader in the lobby who will then accompany you to the minister’s office.
We believe there are many paths to wisdom and spiritual truth; our members engage in many religious practices that may include aspects of Christianity, Humanism, Judaism, Islam, Buddhism, and Earth-Centered spirituality. We may classify ourselves as theists, deists, agnostics, atheists, or humanists, but we share a common need for community, spirituality, social justice, and support in our life’s journey.
It is such a powerful experience to find a spiritual, compassionate, courageous faith. This is Kimberly Sweeny’s story of discovering Unitarian Universalism while she was serving in the U.S. Military.
We have no creed, but our members believe that learning and spiritual growth continue throughout life. The answer to life’s important questions, “Where did we come from, why are we here, and what happens when we die,” may never be fully answered, but the search for those answers is important. Although we are a non-creedal religion, we believe deeply in the church’s seven principles and we promise, or covenant with each other and the community that we will do everything we can to live by our principles.
Our congregation strives for diversity, social justice, acceptance and peace in our congregation, our community, and in the world as a whole. We invite you to join with us in worship and loving community.
