Beginning A Spiritual Journey?
If you are new to Unitarian Universalism or new to this Ann Arbor Congregation, let us introduce ourselves.
Please join with us to make a difference in our families, our community and our World.
We build our sense of community by caring for each other and allowing you to share your unique gifts and interests with others.
Our choirs and music programs provide diverse and energizing music. Whether you're a pianist, a singer or country fiddler, there is a place for you here.
Our congregation relies on the generosity of members and friends to gather the financial support necessary for our active community.
We are helping lead the way among faith communities across the country who incorporate environmental stewardship into spiritual practices.
