About Our Congregation:

In the heart of the Big Bend region of North Florida, The Unitarian Universalist Church of Tallahassee is a mix of members and supporting friends. We are grounded by the covenantal agreements we make with each other.

Our buildings and grounds echo our culture in many ways. The windows on three sides of our sanctuary remind us of the beauty and diversity of nature and call us to be good stewards of our planet. 

Throughout UUCT’s history, we have been a generous congregation both in volunteer hours and monetary donations.  During the COVID pandemic, we closed our doors to in-person services and activities. We met through Zoom for our spiritual health and our support for one another.

During the period of closure and reopening, we found our membership and RE involvement have changed. Younger families are seeking and finding a spiritual home with us, and we want to continue welcoming new members and families to our church. We know a re-energized RE program is a big step in that direction.

Our congregation emerges from the pandemic with a congregational commitment to governance restructuring and to the 8th Principle, aspiring to attract a diverse group of people. We are committed to and supported by a movement among other Tallahassee religious organizations supporting such vital issues as gun control and low-income housing. We want to attract others to join us in our growth as a congregation and as a community group helping others while upholding our UU Principles.
