Congregational Life

What to Expect

  • Spirit

The Unitarian Universalist Church of Roanoke is a caring, open-minded church that encourages each individual to seek his/her own spiritual path. Our faith welcomes inspiration from many religious sources, welcoming people with different beliefs. In this place, people gather to nurture their spirits and put their faith into action by helping to make our community—and the world—a better place.

  • Our Sunday Service

When you visit for the first time, you will find a relaxed atmosphere without any pressure or sales pitch. Worship includes music, poetry, prayer, reflections, and a message to explore and deepen your spiritual faith. We provide childcare, as well as programs for all ages;  you can also keep your children with you during the service.

  • Dress

You will find the atmosphere to be fairly casual, with a range of clothing at Sunday services from jeans to traditional “church clothes.”  This is a come-as-you-are church experience.

  • Open Hearts

Our church is a Welcoming Congregation that truly believes in and, more importantly, practices this motto. We respect people from different walks and stages of life.  We are also very proud of including  gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender (GLBT) individuals in our membership. We are always striving to be an inclusive community.
