I am a Unitarian Universalist because it is a faith based on love instead of doctrine.  This love is expressed throughout the UUFCC community in so many ways. 

We generously support numerous community agencies that serve people in need.  We emphasize the importance of reason and science and continuously celebrate our lives through nurturing relationships.  We are committed to the arts.

I am a Unitarian Universalist because we welcome folks from varied religious, social, ethnic, and racial backgrounds.  We embrace diversity while celebrating individuality.  As a gay man, I have always experienced acceptance within the UU faith.

I am a Unitarian Universalist because it is the place where I experience support, inspiration, and affirmation as I create my spiritual reality.

Dr. Alan Searle was raised in the United Kingdom but never felt at home with his parents’ Church of England religion. It wasn’t until 1985 that he started attending a fellowship in Washington State and became a UU. When he, and his wife Jeri, moved to Florida in 2018 they started attending UUFCC. They made the right choice. Alan likes the message, the reassurance, and the challenge of being a UU in Florida, and in the US.


From Cory Dowdy – Hi, my name is Cory, I’ve been a member of UUFCC since December 2019. I’m a part of this wonderful eclectic community because I, myself, am a person of an eclectic faith, and you meet many people with like minds and like hearts. I look forward to what the future holds

I first entered the UUFCC fold in 2005. It offered a lot: a place to have a conversation,  avenues to help those who need help, and a road for enhancing self-expression. 

There is still so much to be done. More outreach is needed. Improvement of our self-understanding. And the conversations must go on. I enjoy and will participate actively in the challenges.

From Katy Brown – I am glad to belong to UUFCC because it gives me friendships with truly open-minded, intelligent people.  I love that UUFCC is involved with the community, and is respectful of the environment.  The many activities give me a chance to channel my energy into helping others, without regard for their race, creed, gender, or sexual orientation, which is meaningful and fulfilling for me.
