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)

Brunch Ritual Midsummer/Litha/Summer Solstice

Saturday June 22, 9:00am


We will hold our Summer Solstice celebration on June 22nd from 9-11 a.m., led by our Heathen friends of Hearth's Gate Kindred, a tradition from Northern Europe. This heartfelt ritual will celebrate Freyr and Freya, the Lord and Lady of the season. We'll make offerings (blôt) in the fire bowl on the patio and feast together (sÿmbel) in the cool, air-conditioned Goddard Hall.

The theme of the feast is Ploughman's Lunch: artisanal bread or rolls, cheese, pickled onions, good butter, pickles, cold cuts, sliced turkey, ham, green salad, chutney, tomatoes, sausages, hard boiled eggs, and apples. Don't forget lemon bars, tea cakes, berries, or chocolates for dessert. Please bring these things with you:
• a non-alcoholic beverage for drinking and for making offerings and toasts, such as iced tea, lemonade, coffee, or seltzers.
• personal offerings, including spoken words, grain, cut flowers, etc.
• a dish to share for our brunch feast that reflects your family, ancestral, or cultural heritage. Homemade dishes and drinks are encouraged; store-bought ones are welcome. Can you bake your grandmother's bread recipe? Or is there a brand of tea your dad was loyal to? What you bring does not have to be fancy or expensive; bring it with love from your hearth to ours.
• Admission is free; donations are gratefully accepted.
• Schedule: 8:30 am for set up (optional). Gather at 9 am to socialize and prepare; we will start the ritual promptly by 9:30 am and eat at 10 am. Please help with clean up if you can.
• All ages welcome! If you would like to request childcare for younger children, email Jamili at DRE.uuct@gmail.com.

Fair Share Guide

The Suggested Fair-Share Contribution Guide

Get PDF Version for printing

Using the Guide is a simple, 3-step process; giving is a function of commitment and resources.

  1. Most of us budget our financial commitments on a monthly basis and the guide is organized accordingly, but you may calculate on any time frame that works for you. For convenience, the guide shows monthly and corresponding annual income levels. Determine your monthly income or resource level. $___________
  2. ADD to your income level any unusual or periodic income, such as inheritances, business income, anticipated investment income, etc. SUBTRACT any unusual expenses, such as large medical expenses, care of a parent, or a large financial expense, etc. Result: $_________ This is your Adjusted Monthly Income.
    Each of us will have our own unique circumstances to consider in making this calculation. The flexibility to include meaningful and unusual exceptions in your financial life (income and expenses) is what makes the Guide fair and useful. This is a tool for you to use in the spirit of the Congregationalist tradition; we are individually and collectively responsible for resourcing our movement and our congregations. This is an honor system; only you know your circumstances.
  3. From the Adjusted Monthly Income column, move to the right to find a suggested giving level that you are ready to support, between 2% and 10%, depending on adjusted income and level of commitment. Interpolate between guide levels if needed.

In making your decision, consider the four commitment levels below and how they relate to your membership. Consider your UU values in thinking about your income and your financial commitment to the congregation, as expressed in the four levels below. Note that within each commitment level, the guide is progressive, with giving levels rising with capacity.

  • Supporter: The congregation is a significant part of my spiritual and intellectual life that I want to support. My fair share financial commitment starts at 2% of my income and rises to 6% as my income and capacity rise.
    Sustainer: The congregation is my central community; I am committed to sustaining the programs and ministries of my congregation. My fair share financial commitment starts at 3% of my income and rises to 7% as my income and capacity rise.
  • Visionary: My commitment is a clear demonstration of the unique importance of this congregation and of my spiritual principles. My fair share financial commitment starts at 5% of my income and rises to 9% as my income and capacity rise.
  • Transformer: I am deeply committed to the congregation; my contribution provides fuel for transformation and is part of my spiritual practices in living out my UU Principles. My fair share financial commitment represents 10% of my income.
