After not feeling fully embraced by several other denominations and paths, UUCJ offers me a place to celebrate my faith and values.
I visited the church years ago and was interested and impressed with their unique approach to religious community. Now, I’m actively involved and feel as though I am contributing to a community that is meaningful and helps me find the connection that I have always sought but never found in church.
