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.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.
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.
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.
