Community Partners

Community Partners: An Overarching Outreach Strategy

We are a generous and inclusive faith “community of communities”. We compassionately listen and lead by creating connections to make SW Florida more just and sustainable in ways that are consistent with our Vision and values. We dare to manifest the invisible. We learn from our past, live for the moment, and envision a future of what we want to become. We acknowledge that there are no shortcuts to any future worth aspiring to. If we fail to honor our principles, they will fail to honor us. We are ordinary people with extraordinary determination.

So, we seek out community partners better than us, different from us, and braver than us. We know the time is always right to do what is right. With conviction of heart, we go out on a limb because that’s where the fruit is. We dare to make a difference. We rejoice in the process and crave the goal! With our community partners, we will either find a way, or create one. We are not afraid of greatness.

Creating Community through Music and Arts

With our community partner the Gulf Coast Symphony, in 2020 we announced the opening of a new Music & Arts Community Center that is a creative hub where people of all ages and abilities can share music and arts as common ground on the UUCFM campus. The Center is a unique “community” where diversity, expression, and self-transformation blossom to build a more just civic culture. Learn more here.

Creating Community through Environmental Sustainability

We proudly host the newly announced Southwest Florida RESET Center on our park-like campus. The RESET Center strives to inform SWFL citizens on the urgency for bold action against the human influences of climate change and to facilitate collaborative activities with mission-aligned regional organizations.

Testimonials From Members - Why I Became A Unitarian Universalist

Peggy Eisenberg
“This is a church that is a welcoming congregation, active in social justice issues, and works to combat racism, sexism, and classism. Is it really a church? ... My husband, Steve, and I came to UUCFM a couple years ago. We have been here ever since. I realized that I was a UU without knowing it! I have finally found my spiritual home.”
