A Progressive, Inclusive Faith Community
We are the Unitarian Universalist Church of Surprise, Arizona. We provide a religious and spiritual home for open-minded, community-involved people in the northwest valley.
We welcome you!
Welcome! We are glad that you have found us! If you have made your way to our congregation or its website, maybe you are wondering and searching, as we were wondering and searching when we found it. Do you share with us a sense that there is more to life than appears on its bare surface? Have you also felt awe, joy, something wonderful that lies at the heart of life and gives it meaning? Do you, too, value questions and critical thinking?
If so, we offer a safe place to gather, explore, and yes, celebrate together. We are the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Surprise, Arizona. We do not ask anyone to stake his or her life on any one belief system by adopting its creed. Instead, we honor and value many wisdom traditions, including our own. We believe that together we can find common purpose for our lives, affirming and respecting the inherent worth and dignity of every person. We believe that all human beings need to search freely and responsibly for truth and meaning. We believe that all of us need to be treated with justice, equity, and compassion. And we believe that we are only a part of the interdependent web of all existence.
If you are new to the Phoenix area, or “church”, or Unitarian Universalism, or to all three, we would be very pleased to meet you. Thank you for visiting this website and for letting us introduce our congregation!
Rev. Terry Sims, Minister
