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. Bethany Russell-Lowe

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!  Rev. Bethany Russell-Lowe (minister@uuctucson.org)

Our Seven Principles

We, the member congregations of the Unitarian Universalist Association, covenant to affirm and promote:

  • 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
  • The goal of world community with peace, liberty and justice for all.
  • Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part.

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.
