The Unitarian Universalist fellowship of Laramie (UUFL) began in 1955. We are a community of all ages who come from a variety of religious backgrounds, predominantly Christian and Jewish. Our religious beliefs vary considerably, but we are bound by our belief in Unitarian Universalist principles and by our mission statement. Unitarian Universalism is a religion that challenges us to a free and responsible search for truth and meaning.
Our Mission Statement
We come here to stimulate, support and empower each individual to honestly discover the spiritual, moral and intellectual qualities necessary to live and act compassionately within the interdependent web of the human family and the environment. (1992)
Our congregation is self-governing and democratically organized. Our Board of Directors is elected at our annual meeting and meets monthly. Members and friends are strongly encouraged to contribute their talents to the committees and religious education program which are the foundation of the work of our church.
Our religious education focuses on the Unitarian Universalist principles and the contributions of important Unitarian Universalists; assists children in forming a personal value system based on our principles; and explores the beliefs and practices of world religions.
