Our Mission Statement

Beginning in Fall 2023, the MUUC Board undertook revising the church’s Vision and Mission to reflect
the themes emerging from our Next Steps Journey planning process. On January 28, the revisions were
presented to the congregation. The Board invited the congregation to affirm and live into these new
versions over the next several months as we continue our Next Steps work.

As affirmed by the Congregation on January 28, 2024

At MUUC, we nurture and challenge ourselves to deeper understanding, meaning, and purpose.

  • We GATHER through worship, music, lifelong learning, and caring ministries to
    build a vibrant, compassionate, and growing MUUC community.
  • We INSPIRE spiritual growth, to heal hearts and to support each other.
  • We GIVE generously of our time, talents, and resources at MUUC and beyond,
    energized by our contributions and grateful for those of others.
  • We TRANSFORM lives and communities beyond our walls through our own
    efforts and in partnership with others in the service of social and environmental justice.
