The Unitarian Universalist Church of Hendricks County is a congregation that always has, and always will, not only respect the inherent dignity and worth of EVERY person, but consciously work to promote social justice within our community, both locally and globally. Regarding RFRA in the state of Indiana, our church is opposed to any legislation that contradicts our core belief that each person shall be treated with respect. Specifically, RFRA hurts our LGBT brothers and sisters by allowing blatant discrimination on the basis of religious freedom. Being a large presence regarding LGBT rights in Hendricks County has been a central focus for our Social Justice Committee, and will continue to be as we work together towards true equality. We are a house of love for all, and we walk many different paths to come together as one. Collectively, we unite and stand to say that we do not condone discrimination, legal or otherwise, within our church or our community. We will continue to be a place that is open and loving to all, our doors are open to serve everyone.
Coming News and Events
This month we are living in joy. And not just because the renovations are done! It has been a joy to see that happening but even more of one to watch people react to the new space.
Wonder and joy seem to be closely related. If we approach the world with a sense of wonder can we help but respond with joy?

The Unitarian Universalist Community Church stands for religious freedom and the pursuit of cultural and religious diversity. As individuals, we are each seeking and finding spiritual fulfillment in different ways; yet we share the common characteristics of openness to new ideas and acceptance of others regardless of religious or cultural differences. We believe in spiritual values that build finer human beings, and that ethical living is the supreme witness of religion. We affirm the worth of every human being and trust every person's ability to build their own spiritual framework. We do not assent to any creed or statement of faith. The Unitarian Universalist Community Church is a small, committed group of people with the desire to build a church congregation to serve Hendricks county communities. It is our vision to establish a family-centered church that will provide an open setting for spiritual growth and development. We hope to reach area residents whose spiritual needs are not currently being met through existing churches. We aspire to grow rapidly, but recognize the need to proceed judiciously.
