Our Members and Friends
We call ourselves “the little church that could”! Leadership is widespread in our congregation. We love to talk with each other and have fun together. UUCAS consists of members and friends who live locally and some who travel as much as 60 miles.
We are a Welcoming Congregation. A Welcoming Congregation affirms the presence and participation of Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and/or Transgendered (GLBT) people. To become a Welcoming Congregation, we attended a series of workshops exploring our attitudes, prejudices, and ignorance about GLBT people. The Unitarian Universalist Association recognized UUCAS as a Welcoming Congregation in 2007.
Safe Congregation: Because we care about the safety of each child and adult who is part of UUCAS, we created a policy to support concerns about sexual misconduct. Please visit our Safe Congregation Page for more information.
