Unitarian Universalist Church of Tucson

Our Mission

We transform ourselves, our community, and our world by intentionally living our Unitarian-Universalist principles.


Welcoming Congregation

Greetings and WelcomeRev. Lyn Oglesby

Welcome! We are so glad you have found your way here. The Unitarian Universalist Church of Tucson has been a beacon of liberal religion and a place to pursue a free and responsible search for truth and meaning in Tucson for over 70 years. If you are looking for a place where you can explore your own spiritual truths in community with others, you have come to the right place! As Unitarian Universalists, we believe that we need not think alike to love alike. Our community is bound together by our Seven Principles which include: the dignity and worthiness of all people, equity and compassion in human relations, and respect for the interdependent web of life. We take inspiration from multiple religions as well as humanist, secular, and scientific thought. Come join us to learn more!

Pulpit Testimonial Speakers Needed

Celebrating our 70th Anniversary - Pulpit Testimonials

70 years ago the Unitarian Universalist Church of Tucson, then called the Unitarian Church of Tucson, was formed. In January of 1948 plans were made for a first service and that service was held in February. The official Organization Sunday, where people "signed the book" and formally created the church, was May 9th. This comes from a wonderful history of our early years by our own Susan Call and Darlene Mathews that can be found on our website.

So this year marks our Platinum Anniversary. In those 70 years this church has meant a lot to the people who found and celebrated Unitarianism and, later Unitarian-Universalism, in Tucson. One event we will have this year is a series of pulpit testimonials where many of us, especially those whose voice is less often heard, will speak on what this church means to them and their hopes for our future. If you would be willing to speak sometime during the year please sign up here or contact Frank Valdes (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.).

  • The inherent worth and dignity of every person
  • Justice, equity and compassion in human relations
  • Acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth in our congregations
  • A free and responsible search for truth and meaning
  • The right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in society at large

Religious Education

Our Vision

Our lifespan learning community seeks to nurture and stimulate the spiritual, intellectual, emotional, and social growth of people of all ages, stages of faith and levels of religious experience.

We envision a program that is rooted in our UU principles and a free and responsible search for meaning that through the thoughts and actions of our lives, transforms us, our community, and our world.
