Whether you're just browsing, or looking for a spiritual home, we're glad you've found us.

Open Mind: We are a diverse community, each of us on our own individual spiritual journey, we share the visions and ideas in a supportive and caring environment. U-U is unique in that we are free to form our own belief systems without having to subscribe to any dogma imposed upon us. We draw from the wisdom of many sources including teachings of the world's religions, cultures, and traditions, and the words and deeds of prophetic women and men.

True religious freedom should allow for seeking a place where you feel spiritually moved, but also for personal freedom of thought and expression within the religious organization itself. Our pulpit is an open pulpit and our Minister, Reverend Gail Tapscott, and others who speak are free to express their points of view without encumbrances.

Members and Friends of this congregation are welcome to agree or disagree and openly discuss these ideas with each other. While we each develop our own religious and philosophical paths, our unity stems from affirming and promoting some very important universal principles. Among these are the inherent worth and dignity of every person, justice, love, acceptance, and compassion in human relations, the ongoing search for truth, the use of both reason and the democratic process, the importance of community and respect of the interdependent web of all existence of which we are all a part. We welcome you through our doors to share your personal ideas and visions with us.

Helping Hands: According to Rev Peter Margoles, President of the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA), "Unitarian-Universalism has good news - news which has been palpable in our own lives, and which will be a blessing to the world outside our sanctuary walls." We offer a place of community where we use our helping hands to support each other both in our work within the church, and in our own personal lives. 

Our congregation, in tradition of U-U congregations, is a self-governing body. Our church alone decides on our actions and directions, and although we have a great source of advice and assistance with the UUA, we do not answer to a higher authority than the members of our congregation. We also have a time in our service to express personal joys and concerns, and our congregation is responsive to the needs of our members and friends. 

We also take our helping hands outside our walls, supporting calls for community outreach including social justice, humanitarian and environmental concerns in Broward County and beyond.
