The Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Fayetteville (UUFF) was founded in 1951 by folks from Fayetteville and the University of Arkansas seeking to participate in progressive, liberal religious worship and social justice practice, and have a place to educate their children in an open religious world view.
Since that time, UUFF has developed a strong heritage committed to reason, tolerance and love. From leading school integration efforts in the 1950′s, to providing a haven for social action and religious groups in the 80′s and 90′s, UUFF has helped shape the larger community while fostering a nurturing and supportive atmosphere for members’ spiritual and intellectual quests.
Today we continue to be a leading voice for liberal religion and social justice in this region.
So who are we?
As a diverse faith community, we promote an environment and culture in which the Unitarian Universalist Principles thrive in our Fellowship, Northwest Arkansas, and the world. In so doing, our congregation shall:
- Serve as a welcoming religious community for all who practice a liberal religious life in agreement with our Principles and Covenant.
- Open our hearts and doors for those in need, share laughter for those celebrating, and of comfort for those in sadness and grief.
- Strive to be a center of excellence for intellectual, emotional, and spiritual learning, and promote growth and dialogue between ours and other sources of religious and spiritual life.
- Provide ourselves and the wider community with resources of venue, volunteers, programming and leadership to make personal and societal changes towards love, happiness, equality, and justice.
