Welcome to Northlake!
We’re glad you’re here. At Northlake we hope you find a spiritual home where you can make new friends, explore opportunities and build relationships. We care for each other, worship and learn, plus spend a lot of time laughing, singing and eating. We serve our community through acts of love and justice.
Our faith tradition dates back 500 years to the Protestant Reformation, and arguably, to the earliest days of Christianity. We have a rich history of leaders, martyrs, and communities. In 1568, King John (Unitarian) issued the first ever doctrine of religious tolerance. In America, many of our founding leaders were Unitarian. Unitarian and Universalists have been on the leading theological, educational, social, and justice fronts for centuries. We continue to build on these efforts. In 1961, the two denominations formed an association – Unitarian (belief in using reason to discern religious truths) and Universalist (every person is loved and valued) known as the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA). Today’s church welcomes a broad range of religious beliefs and views, but love, care and compassion are central to honoring each other and nurturing our diversity. You are welcome to come explore your spiritual path and join us as we do the same.
As minister of this congregation, I invite your questions about faith – yours and ours – and to explore what it means to be a fully engaged member of this thriving religious community.
On this web site, you will find information on Unitarian Universalism and Northlake, as well as ways to connect to the Northlake community. There are many opportunities to get involved. Some people jump in very quickly, others take more time. You are welcome to find your own pace and ask questions along the way. My door is also open.
This is our church. We build a thriving community together and we welcome you as a fellow Northlaker.
