Why I Joined

Just as we believe there are many paths to the truth, there are many reasons our members join.

“This is a place that you can come each week to be reinspired and reinvigorated. Here I have found an intergenerational community of authentic people discussing and tackling real world issues. The new ministers have brought new life to this wonderful congregation!”
—Tara C.

“I came to the Unitarian Society of Hartford hoping to find a community of like-minded peers and that is exactly what I’ve found here. My life has changed immeasurably for the better since then—I have finally found ‘my people’ and I couldn’t be more thrilled about it.”
—Stephanie B.

“I like coming here because this church is welcoming and open. I feel like I can be myself without being judged. I really enjoy the fact that the kids are free to express themselves.”
—Yamel

“To me, church should be a group of people who have some beliefs in common. That is relatively easy if the group is homogenous, but for a mixed, diverse group, finding things in common can be tricky. There are a lot of people, myself included, who wouldn’t easily fit into other groups, yet we seem to fit in here.”
—Jack

“Church hadn’t been a place I was drawn to in my young adult life. ‘Interested in spirituality, but not religion?’ was the question the 20s/30s Group at the Unitarian Society of Hartford posed that compelled me to visit for the first time. I felt enough space to be who I naturally am and deepen my spiritual questions in an accepting and welcoming environment. ‘It’s all good’ is the feeling of this place. After Sunday services I leave feeling uplifted, grounded, and open-hearted. And for that I am grateful.”
—Lisa G.

And this, from one of our most senior members, who has seen our church evolve for more than 80 years!
