Who We are
Welcome to the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Central Michigan (UUFCM)!
“Come into this place which we make holy by our presence... We gather here to be who we are and who we are called to be. Come into this place where the ordinary is sanctified, the human is celebrated, the compassionate is expected. Come into this place, for together we make it a holy place.”
~ Rebecca Edmiston-Lange (adapted)
The UUFCM is a self-governing (and growing!) congregation of approximately 100 members and friends that was founded in 2001. We come together to worship, to create an enriching, non-dogmatic religious community and to live out our faith in service to the wider community and world. This community of faith is not like most other churches. We do not come together because we all believe the same things. We do not all have the same image of God, or even all believe in a god. We do not all have the same religious backgrounds, nor do we all hold sacred the same objects or holidays or rituals. Unitarian Universalism is a caring, open-minded religion that encourages you to seek your own spiritual path. We are united by covenant - by shared values - not by creed or dogma. Our congregation is a place where people gather to nurture their spirits (grow their souls) and put their faith into action by helping to make our community—and the world—a better place. We are whole-heartedly a Welcoming Congregation. This fellowship promotes and supports the full participation in its activities of all persons of whatever race, creed, gender, ability, affectional or sexual orientation, age, origin or class. The UUFCM is a proud member congregation of the Unitarian Universalist Association.
