Member Stories

When I moved to Jackson in 1998, I was looking for a Unitarian Universalist Church because I had been introduced to the denomination by my sister in Texas. When I visited the UUCJ, I decided that it could be my home church due to the friendly members and liberal religious values. And I’ve been attending ever since.

After not feeling fully embraced by several other denominations and paths, UUCJ offers me a place to celebrate my faith and values.

UUCJ has been home base for me for many years now. I’ve been able to provide leadership through many positions in the church. There are so many opportunities for personal and spiritual growth here. It has been a blessing to be part of this faith community. I look forward to many more years with this exciting group of folks.
