A Life of Sacred Purpose | A Transformative Life
At UU Santa Fe, we believe that a life of sacred purpose contains at its core, elements of reverence, right relationship, service, and life long learning. To make this balance possible for you, we offer:
- Inspiring worship
- Meaningful connections through covenant and affinity groups
- Engaging social justice opportunities in our wider community
- Transformative lifelong learning and spiritual practices informed by our distinct Unitarian Universalist perspective
Said another way, our lifelong learning program is this church and what we do here. We actively encourage your participation in these four core experiences. We promote both action and contemplation in our lives. We must change ourselves before we can move the world. Come. Explore. Engage.
Children & Youth Program
We may be teaching children, but we are raising people. When our children’s journey with UU Santa Fe is over, if we have done faith development skillfully, they will know they are whole and complete, derived from and integrated into all that is, and worthy and capable of unconditional love. We are here to journey with you and your children as we search for truth, overcome injustice, and live our faith.
Adult Lifelong Learning
Our liberal tradition has never accepted religious claims to know the only truth or the whole truth. We recognize that there are many perspectives, many beliefs, and many truths to be learned and understood. Therefore, religious education for us is a commitment to a lifelong process of learning. ― Rev. Jill McAllister, People’s Church, Kalamazoo, Michigan
UU Santa Fe covenant groups consisting of 6-12 people meet regularly, usually monthly, to reflect on and discuss significant life topics. Over time, participants build deep connections with one another, with the congregation, and with the sacred.
UU Santa Fe sponsors a variety of Affinity Groups with the purpose of building community and facilitating social connections among our members and friends. In addition to enabling and enriching friendships, affinity groups meet oftentimes to share a particular activity―such as study, reading, crafting, or the arts. Engage!
All are welcome here.
In the spirit of the Unitarian Universalist principles, we provide a welcoming environment to every adult, youth, and child who crosses our threshold. We openly affirm both traditional and non-traditional family structures in all of their variety. We intentionally incorporate curricula resources and class offerings, which emphasize our commitment to diversity and which strengthen us all to stand against prejudice in its many forms. Community building and social justice initiatives are an integral part of programs for all ages.
Our Mission: We nurture hearts and minds, practice beloved community, and work for justice.
We welcome all persons, regardless of race, ethnicity, national origin; gender or gender identification, affectional preference or sexual orientation; age, physical or mental challenge; or social, economic, or marital status. Come, there is a place for you here.
Come, open to be moved. Come, be held in mutual embrace.
Come, engage the world. Come and be made whole.
