I was looking for a religiously liberal community where I would find support for living out my values without having to compromise my beliefs. I found that and so much more at UUCJ!

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.

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.

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.

UUCJ keeps me grounded in multiple ways. I get to be around people who think progressively like me while surrounded in conservatism. It also gives me the place to search inward to really understand what spirituality means for me. And especially during Covid, the connections I’ve had at UUCJ are a lifesaver, keeping me from drifting off into isolation.

UUCJ is a community of open-minded, accepting people who care about other people and try to make the world a better place

UUCJ is a welcoming friendly community that inspires, supports, and connects people!
