We continue 100 years of Unitarianism
in Jacksonville -- 46 years as UUCJ in our present beautiful setting.
The Unitarian Universalist Church of Jacksonville (UUCJ) is a religious and spiritual community celebrating Unitarian Universalist principles. We commit to caring for one another with acceptance
and respect. We pledge to sustain a sacred space where together we seek religious freedom, personal growth, life's meaning, and social justice. Through our actions, we serve as a catalyst for social change.
As Universalists we seek truth and meaning in life and believe that
everyone will find peace in death. We think that each religion has
part of the truth, and that no religion has all the truth.

As Unitarians we believe that life is an evolving, creative unity,
and that respect for science and knowledge complements true religion.

May 30:   (Two Services 9:00AM & 11:00AM)
Rev. Gary M. Gallun -- “War - What Is It Good For?”
As we remember those who paid the ultimate price on Memorial Day next week, we may need to look again at the necessity of war and the possibility of peace.
  • June 6:   (One Service 11:00AM Only)
Meredith Garmon, PhD -- “Consecration Sunday”
“con•se•cra•tion” - noun - a solemn commitment of your life or your time to some cherished purpose (to a service or a goal) How can you nurture your spirit and help heal the our world? What concrete expression of your faith and commitment to this congregation and  Unitarian Universalism can you make?
Plan to stay for the Consecration Sunday catered luncheon which will follow the service.
  • June 13:   One Service (11:00am Only)
Rev. Gary Gallun -- “Who Owns The Farm?”
Native Americans didn't believe that anyone could “own” the land but were subsequently “thrown off” the land by the settlers who believed that they could. Today the Earth's mineral resources, its waters and air, as well as the land, have succumbed to owner-ship. The Native American concept of stewardship, rather than ownership, might be something we should re-examine.
This is Rev. Gallun's final
service as our Interim Minister.
Plan to join us in bidding him a fond
farewell as he prepares to travel to
his next Interim Ministry.
