We appreciate the commitment that these new members have made to our church community with their gifts of time, financial support, talents, and themselves. We look forward to working together to fulfill the mission of this church.
The UUCH covenant that members make with each other is as follows:
We, as members of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Huntsville, covenant to work together to create a supportive, affirming, sustaining community that inspires and challenges each of us to become our best selves. To further our goal of creating such an intentional community, we promise each other to:
  • Affirm the inherent worth and dignity of every member of our community, valuing our differences and supporting each other in a free and responsible search for truth and meaning;
  • Listen to one another with the intent of understanding, and speak to one another with respect and kindness, so that all may be heard;
  • Recognize that forming an intentional community may at times require us to place the needs of the community above our own needs;
  • Foster caring relationships by assuming the best intent in others, disagreeing in love, and empowering one another to speak for ourselves;
  • Affirm the work of the church to the best of our abilities, valuing the work of others, and supporting those who voluntarily accept leadership roles in the church;
  • Promote an environment where all people feel safe, both physically and emotionally;
  • Use the energy and support we thus create to bring our vision of justice, equity and compassion in human relations into our wider community, our nation, and our world.

Welcome, New UUs!
