Our Mission
To inspire wonder, radically accept and love, joyfully connect and serve.

Unitarian Universalists have a long history as self-motivated spiritual people: we recognize that life experience influences our beliefs more than anything.  At SouthWest UU Church, we seek to provide a caring, accepting intergenerational community which supports ongoing individual and spiritual growth. We strive to live our values, accepting our individual responsibility to be active in environmental and social concerns in our church, community, and world.  And because we share these values, we include the voices and dreams of all who choose to gather with us. To learn about Unitarian Universalism, see our page on the Principles and Sources of Faith.
