A Warm Invitation to any of our Baja 4 UU congregation members who is feeling a deep sense of loss...whether due to the death of a loved one, or the loss of a marriage, a pet, even painful estrangement from grown children or other family or friends...
Losing someone (or something) cherished can leave us with a giant aching wound, but choosing to share that loss with others is the first step toward healing that wound...We meet on Zoom every Sunday morning from 9:00-10:00 am. You may share or listen (as you like). Please leave a message with facilitator Lynnie Bradley of UUCT (520) 235-5812....Take heart...there is comfort for your broken-heart ahead!!

Less is More: How Degrowth Will Save The World by Jason Hickel, 2020
Our planet is in trouble. But how can we reverse the current crisis and create a sustainable future? The answer is: DEGROWTH.
Less is More is the wake-up call we need. By shining a light on ecological breakdown and the system that's causing it, Hickel shows how we can bring our economy back into balance with the living world and build a thriving society for all. This is our chance to change course, but we must act now -- Danny Dorling, Professor of Geography, University of Oxford

Spring is in the air... And the UUCT Auction will be here before the swallows return from Capistrano! 
Do you have a skill you'd like to share? A mouthwatering meal you'd like to offer to friends? That special dessert that is waiting to please the palate? What about a service - window washing or yard clean-up? 
Or maybe you have an Amazon gift card or a store gift card, that you'll never use. Gee, who wouldn't appreciate a gas gift card with the sky-high gas prices. 
You can mail them or drop them off at the church. (Please label them as '2022 Auction Gift', and please call the office ahead of time.) 
The UUCT Fundraising Auction will be held online the week of June 5 – 12th, 2022. More details about how to bid/buy will follow. 
We're all in this together so let's put the FUN in Fundraiser!

MORE Highlights of the TEXnewMEX TUUR October 8-16, 2022
This is a not to be missed TUUR with a small group of 24 travelers and only 9 places left? Registration closes June 1. I will be at church this Sunday with more information and would love to talk to you about the trip. You may also contact Julia Mehrer at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. for registration information. See the full itinerary at https://uuctucson.org/images/documents/Brochures/TEXnewMEX.pdf 
Agriculture has been an important part of life in New Mexico for at least 4,000 years? Pistachios are a major crop now in the Las Cruces area. Think dark chocolate covered pistachios, green chile pistachio brittle, (yes, made with Hatch, NM green chiles), or what about pistachio wine? The Heart of the Desert Store on the plaza in Mesilla (one of our stops) sells all these goodies.
El Paso is the largest U.S. city on the Mexican border? The historic Mission Trail is a nine-mile stretch across time in El Paso County’s Mission Valley. The Ysleta Mission, founded in 1682, was built by the Tigua Indians and is oldest church in the state of Texas. 
Fort Davis played a major role in the history of the Southwest, and it was a key post in the defense system of western Texas? From 1854 until 1891, troops stationed at the post protected emigrants, freighters, mail coaches, and travelers on the San Antonio-El Paso Road hoping to reach the gold fields of California. Today, Fort Davis is considered one of the best remaining examples of a frontier military post in the American Southwest. 
In the 1930s, Roswell was a site for much of Robert H. Goddard's early rocketry work? The Roswell Museum and Art Center maintains an exhibit that includes a recreation of Goddard's rocket engine development workshop. 
The first historical record of the Marfa lights was in 1883? A young cowhand, Robert Reed Ellison, saw a flickering light while he was driving cattle through Paisano Pass and wondered if it was the campfire of Apache Indians. Other settlers told him they often saw the lights, but that when they investigated they found no ashes or other evidence of a campsite.

Stained Glass Window

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.
