Who We Are
We strive to be a welcoming church of about 150 members. We are LGBTQIA+ friendly. We believe that Black Lives Matter. Our goal might be described as happiness, helpfulness, and fulfillment for ourselves and earth-kind, by means of our continued growth understanding, caring, and community. The activities of our church help us toward this goal. We encourage and support one another on our individual spiritual journeys. We seek wisdom about life and how to live from every source we know, including: (1) our companions and communities, (2) all the world’s religions, (3) the sciences, arts, and humanities, and (4) reflection on our own direct personal experiences. Come join us this Sunday, every Sunday in-person or online at YouTube: UUSTPETE.
The Unitarian Universalist Church of St. Petersburg was founded in 1915 and our beautiful Sanctuary on Mirror Lake was built in 1929. As a congregation in the Unitarian Universalist tradition, we do not have a creed or required set of beliefs. Instead, we agree to act with reverence toward all things as best we understand, to enhance the well-being of one another and our widening circles of community.
We welcome and seek a community with all people equally, regardless of beliefs, gender, race, nationality, orientation, politics, or background. We become companions for our journeys in our Sunday service gatherings and in gathering for study, discussion, life sharing, social activities, Children’s religious education, and social justice activities.
You’re invited to join us at our Sunday morning services at 10:30 AM.

Our Faith is Unitarian Universalism
Unitarian Universalism is a liberal religion that is a welcoming community to people across the spectrum. We have no single belief required to become a Unitarian Universalist. We affirm and promote:
· The inherent worth and dignity of every person.
· Justice, equity, and compassion in human relations.
· Acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth.
· A free and responsible search for truth and meaning.
· The right of conscience and the use of the democratic process.
· The goal of a world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all.
· Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part.
