Caring Community

Join Us

As a Unitarian Universalist congregation, we come together in community to nurture and support each other along life’s many paths. We relate to each other without judgment about spiritual, gender, or religious issues, and we seek to open our hearts to each other in genuine response to our many needs.

Our Caring Community

Our hope is that all of the persons in this UU community—members, visitors, children, and their families—will have the emotional and practical care that a community can appropriately give, especially in times of difficulty or illness.

The Care Team

The Care Team is made up of church members who are trained and available to help those who need it, whether it’s through a phone call, a visit, a car ride, or bringing a meal to help through a time of transition.

We probably won’t know what you need until you tell us, however, so please ask for what you need. Click here for a chart of what the Care Team can offer you.


Sharing with Our Community

We also offer opportunities to share your joys and sorrows with our community.

Sharing in Worship
In our worship service each week, we open our hearts to those in difficult circumstances or those celebrating milestones. This is accomplished in different ways. At our Albuquerque location you can always light a candle at the back of the sanctuary and write your joy or concern on the paper provided. The list goes to the Care Team, and someone will follow up on your concern if you indicate that you’d appreciate that. To add your joy or sorrow to the list, you should call (884-1801) or email the Senior Minister, preferably by noon on Friday.

In the branch congregations or at the Video Worship, you can share your joys or sorrows during the time allotted for it during the worship service.

We Light a Candle . . .
This section in the Messenger and our weekly e-Broadsheet advises church members of the joys and sorrows in their friends’ lives. Items for this column should be e-mailed to
