July's Community Sharing Partner

The Pachamama Alliance of SW Florida formed in October 2016 after a group of local leaders took the Game Changer Intensive together.

Our Three-fold Mission:

Collaborate with and support existing Game Changing movements and the establishment of organizations to inspire, educate, and engage..

Originate programs, develop and disseminate communications, and facilitate training designed to enlighten, energize, and empower pro-activists, giving them the Pachamama Alliance tools and resources needed for transformation to a thriving, just, sustainable human presence on this planet.

Integrate indegenous wisdom and promote the participation of indigenous peoples. 

Before COVID, we met monthly for Game Changer Gatherings at the church. These gatherings featured well-known and respected community leaders. Our regular newsletter reaches over 350 Pachamama people who have participated in our programs.

This last year, we partnered with many organizations by tabling, offering workshops and inviting Climate Change Ambassadors to speak at many events. 

Coming Soon!

The UUCFM Tech Team is planning a Virtual Coffee Hour on Sundays after the service. Look for this soon! Just stay on the Zoom session and we will open up the mics and have our chat when the service ends. Unfortunately, you'll have to make your own coffee...

A Message from the President

We continue to remain together as a community during the Covid-19 pandemic. It has been difficult, as we long to be together once again in person – to share a smile, a hug, a conversation over coffee. But this is still not the right time to do so. It is not safe. The pandemic continues. The UUA has provided updated guidance regarding in-person gatherings. In her published statement, UUA President Sharon Frederick-Gray states:

“As states around the country begin to loosen guidelines and take actions to reopen, even as COVID-19 cases and deaths continue to climb, we have received many questions from congregations about returning to in-person gatherings. Over the past several weeks, the UUA has consulted with multiple public health officials in order to update the guidance we provided on March 12 recommending congregations stop gathering in person. Based on advice from experts, we continue to recommend that congregations not gather in person. We also recommend that congregations begin planning for virtual operations for the next year (through May 2021).”

At this point, we don’t know how long our campus will remain closed to in-person gatherings. Your church leaders are continuing to keep an eye on the situation and will make decisions based upon the best available advice from the scientific and medical communities. It is our moral obligation to make certain that our UUCFM campus is not a spreading point for this deadly virus. The lives of our members, friends, and community are simply too precious for us to risk. Our leadership, staff, and volunteers are committed to providing a safe, virtual environment until this health crisis has abated. Until we are confident that we can provide a safe place for people to gather in person once again, we ask that everyone share in the responsibility to remain off-campus. I realize that this is difficult. Staying away at this time is an act of love that we extend to each other. It is a sacrifice that we make now so that no one’s life need be sacrificed. Everyone here is precious. Please have confidence that when the time is right, we will come together in person again and celebrate, with great rejoicing.

Testimonials From Members - Why I Became A Unitarian Universalist

“We’re a church that doesn’t ask you to believe in any traditional religious beliefs if you don’t want to. Some of them believe in a God and some don’t.”
