In order to be fully recognized as a welcoming congregation, UUCM undertook a two-year course of self study in the areas of education, congregational life, and community outreach. We fly our rainbow flag with pride every day, celebrating Solidarity Sunday in October, attending Twin Cities Pride celebrations, the People of Faith Rally at the State Capitol in support of same-sex couples, and have hosted workshops, book discussions, movie nights, and speakers regarding LGBTQ issues. UUCM has been officially recognized as a Welcoming Congregation by the Unitarian Universalist Association. A welcoming congregation affirms the worth and dignity of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered people and encourages them to visit, participate, become friends, and join our congregation.


"In a spirit of wonder and with courageous love, we connect, grow, and act."

Our church, a member of the Unitarian Universalist Association, was founded in 1960 as an outgrowth of the First Universalist Church of Minneapolis. We now have over 220 members and approximately 150 children in our Religious Education program—and we continue to grow. We are small enough to provide a real sense of community, yet large enough to support a wide range of activities. Our members live in more than a dozen suburbs and include people of all ages. We come from many religious backgrounds, but have one thing in common: an open quest for meaning, and an ongoing effort to put our shared values into practice. Unitarian Universalists find the essence of religion in character and conduct rather than doctrine, creed or dogma. We welcome and affirm the worth of all people regardless of age, race, ethnicity, gender, physical abilities, affectional orientation, marital status, or religious beliefs.
