We are a liberal religious congregation and a dynamic, caring community. We value the inherent worth and dignity of each person, regardless of who you are or whom you love, your family or personal circumstances, or the path your faith calls you to walk.
Unitarian Universalism is an open-minded religion which encourages people to seek their own spiritual path. We are united by shared values, not by creed or dogma. At GNUUC, you can nurture your spirit and put your faith into action to create a just and compassionate world.

“Climate Action: The Moral Imperative”
Fighting for climate action is a moral obligation: we must act now to leave our children and future generations a world that is safe and rich with opportunity and to protect our most vulnerable community members. Climate change is here and we're already seeing its impacts nationwide - more frequent and intense extreme weather events like Superstorm Sandy and the housing, food, and water shortages that come with them, financial hardship from increases in energy costs, heat-related illness and death, infectious diseases, and respiratory ailments. Often, low-income families, the elderly, and children are hit first and hardest by these climate change impacts.
Chris Ann Lunghino is the Sierra Club Beyond Coal Campaign Organizer for Tennessee. She holds a J.D. from Georgetown University Law Center, a M.A. in Urban and REgional Planning from the University of California Irvine, and a B.A. in political science from Boston College. Her personal and professional mission is to create a culture that is committed to sustainability.
