Our Stories. Our Voices.

I first came to UUFR in the summer of 1998. I’d just moved to Raleigh, didn’t know anyone here, except Don, my (now) husband. I was raised in a UU church in NY and, after a hiatus, felt ready to re-engage with a spiritual community. Read the full testimonial.

UUFR is the place where I nurture so much of what’s good in my life: my meditation practice at the Monday night mindfulness group, my desire to serve my community at LEAP and at our monthly Interfaith Food Shuttle project, my writing practice at the Wednesday night writing group, my social activism on the UUFR Acts! Facebook page. And last but not least, it’s in this sanctuary that I am often filled up with the knowledge that life can be hard and beautiful at once, and that I am not alone on this journey.

UUFR is a place where I can raise my children in a faith that affirms the worth and dignity of every person regardless of skin color, religion or sexual orientation.

Nancy and I started attending a UU church regularly in the Cleveland area after the birth of our first child. Exposing our children to a religious environment has always been important to us. Now we are bringing our granddaughter here to UUFR. Read the full testimonial.

Great sense of fellowship! Messages are really resounding and inspirational. Excellent programs for children as well.
