Newcomers Welcome!

We are glad you are here! When you attend the Unitarian Church of Underwood in-person or on Zoom, you will find a warm and welcoming community. People of all ages are welcome. Families begin the Sunday Service together, and then the children leave to attend their religious education class.

We invite you to join us for conversation during our social time following the service. Very often the conversation from the sanctuary continues during our social time. Although we also use that time to get to know one another and to simply visit.

Dress at our church is always eclectic and informal. Dress comfortably and come as you are. If you are comfortable with jeans in the winter and shorts in the summer then feel free to wear them.

The Unitarian Church of Underwood is a member of the Unitarian Universalist Association and MidAmerica Region.

We bid you welcome, who come with weary spirit seeking rest. Who come with troubles that are too much for you. Who come hurt and afraid.

We bid you welcome, who come with hope in your heart. Who come with anticipation in your step, who come proud and joyous.

We bid you welcome, who are seekers of a new faith. Who come to probe and explore. Who come to learn.

We bid you welcome, who enter this hall as a homecoming. Who have found here room for your spirit. Who find in this people a family.

Whoever you are, whatever you are, wherever you are on your journey, we bid you welcome.
