Serving Others

We Put Our Faith Into Action & Service Is Our Prayer

For us, the question is not “What must I do to be saved?’ but rather “What must we all do now, today – working together – to make this world a better place?”

Unitarian Universalists have been at the forefront of significant cultural events in America. Three of the founding fathers were Unitarian. They wrote the Declaration of Independence and put into place important structures for the separation of church and state.

We were abolitionists during the civil war, proponents for women’s rights, marched in Selma with Martin Luther King, Jr., and for thirty years have been outspoken on the rights of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender individuals.

Today you’ll see us in front of the U.S. Capitol witnessing against torture, hate crimes or the genocide in Darfur, advocating for comprehensive sexuality education, marriage equality or fair immigration laws.

You’ll see us serving food in soup kitchens, tutoring children, advocating for social services for the poor and marginalized, engaging in environmental stewardship.

You could say we’re a little out there — out there at the forefront of helping to make the world a better place.

If you’re called to help others, check us out.  We have lots of work to do.
