Welcoming Congregation

UUCWV is a Welcoming Congregation

The Welcoming Congregation Program is a volunteer program for Unitarian Universalist congregations that want to take intentional steps to become more welcoming and inclusive of people with marginalized sexual orientations and gender identities.

"Come Come whoever you are,
Whatever your beliefs, whatever your background
Whatever your physical ability, whomever you love.
You are welcome in this religious home."
First launched in 1990, the program grew out of an understanding that widespread prejudices and ignorance about lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) people existed within Unitarian Universalism, which resulted in the exclusion of LGBTQ people from our congregations.

Since launching this program, the Welcoming Congregations title is bestowed upon all congregations that go through an intense training with UUA executives to learn and to execute what it means to be wholly inclusive of all peoples. 

UUCWV is a welcoming congregation!!
We strive to make all persons who enter our doors feel loved and included no matter who they are or whom they love.
