About Our Church
Los Alamos, New Mexico is a small mountain community of approximately 18,000 people one hour from Santa Fe. The church is part of the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) Mountain Desert district. Our congregation is midsize, with about 150 active members and about 100 friends. We have an active Religious Exploration (RE) program with 50-60 children enrolled in classes from toddlers to High School. Our church year typically starts in the middle of August and goes into the first week of June with regular services at 9 and 11 am. We also offer an Adult Religious Exploration Forum at 10:10 am. During the summer, we invite many outside speakers to explore a whole range of topics of general interest to the public.
In the Spring of 2010, our congregation met to update the Church’s Vision and Mission Statements.
At the Unitarian Church of Los Alamos,
We celebrate diversity of belief and seek unity in action.
End Goals (directions we will take to fulfill our vision):
We will expand our activities to support a diversity of congregational interests and needs, inviting broad participation of congregation and community members.
We will recruit volunteers and lay leaders throughout the congregation, promoting a culture to support and nurture them in their work.
We will offer support for a wide variety of needs in worship programs, continuing to support a varied and vibrant music and other cultural programs.
We will inspire personal growth by expanding our RE program to provide offerings for all ages.
We will bring more visibility to the congregation’s vision of unity in action through connections with individual and group social justice efforts.
We will continue to work towards solutions to our facilities issues in ways that support and promote the above goals.
We are a UUA-certified Welcoming Congregation and spearheaded the formation of and are now actively supporting the local chapter of PFLAG. Our vision is to affirm and exemplify our Principles and Purposes as we welcome and include all people of liberal faith, promote justice, encourage religious thought and experience in the best traditions of our heritage, and serve as an active testimony to the future.
