The Unitarian Universalist Church of Las Cruces (2000 S. Solano - Off University Ave) is our parent organization. There are a wide variety of committees and social justice opportunities for anyone interested in promoting acceptance, diversity, and working for a better world.
Our church welcomes everyone who desires spiritual development in an open atmosphere with respect for differences. Unitarian Universalism teaches that all have value and all should be cherished and respected, regardless of culture, faith, sexual orientation, physical being or family situation.
Many sources inspire our free and open approach to religion including the world's religions, science, and direct spiritual experience. Our pluralistic view is based on our belief that no single religious way can capture the mysteries of creation.
Together, we struggle with the great questions; who are we? where do we come from? and where are we going? We do not provide answers, but rather, companionship and strength for the journey. Here, we encourage seeking and developing our own truth within a community of seekers.We welcome you, your questions and willingness to grow. Our minister is Rev. Rod Thompson. Services are Sundays, 9:00 and 10:30 am. Come worship with us, the door is open.
We want you to know that our services challenge you to think about your spirituality and religious beliefs, our purpose for being here at this time and place, and what we can do to improve the lives of our fellow humans. We welcome you to the Unitarian Universalist Church of Las Cruces, which is a progressive, diverse and caring church community. Our families come in all types and sizes and express the diversity of the American experience – singles, retired, young, old, and in between – single parents, partners with children, grandparents, physically challenged, straight and gay – we appreciate all of the gifts they bring to our religious community. We are a Welcoming Congregation.
We believe there are many paths to wisdom and spiritual truth; our members engage in many religious practices that may include aspects of Christianity, Humanism, Judaism, Islam, Buddhism, and Earth-Centered spirituality. We may classify ourselves as theists, deists, agnostics, atheists, or humanists, but we share a common need for community, spirituality, social justice, and support in our life’s journey.
We have no creed, but our members believe that learning and spiritual growth continue throughout life. The answer to life’s important questions, “Where did we come from, why are we here, and what happens when we die,” may never be fully answered, but the search for those answers is important. Although we are a non-creedal religion, we believe deeply in the church’s seven principles and we promise, or covenant with each other and the community that we will do everything we can to live by our principles.
Our congregation strives for diversity, social justice, acceptance and peace in our congregation, our community, and in the world as a whole. We invite you to join with us in worship and loving community.
