NATIONAL FOCUS

(via UNITARIAN UNIVERSALISTS ASSOCIATION)

Welcoming Congregation

UUCG became an official Welcoming Congregation in 2012 by meeting the criteria of UUA, our national association. The requirements are met on an annual basis and focus on addressing the needs and concerns of LGBTQ+ people, so they feel fully embraced in our church community.

Side With Love

Unitarian Universalists affirm unconditional, universal love as a foundation and grounding for our actions in the world. We strive to be of service to our communities and advocate for change on local, state, national, and international levels. As an expression of our faith and values, the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) takes positions on relevant issues of social justice.

UU the Vote

One of the fundamental principles of the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) is the use of the democratic process. As an expression of our faith, many Unitarian Universalist congregations engage in voter registration, election reform, protecting voting rights and democracy, and Get-Out-the-Vote drives.
