Members Susie, Susan, Ivan, and Minister Mark Pafford holding signs at a protest in front of the Putnam County Courthouse in Cookevill, TN

As Unitarian Universalists, we put our words into action.  By recognizing the inherent worth and dignity of every individual, we work together to find common-sense solutions. We create just, welcoming, and inclusive congregations that celebrate what we have in common, rather that concentrating on our differences.

Our priorities are economic justice, environmental justice, LGBQT justice, racial justice, reproductive justice, and voting rights. Want to get involved? Stop by and talk to us! We are stronger together. Come together with us.
