The Mission of the San Marcos Unitarian Universalist Fellowship
is to be a community that welcomes seekers,
takes care of each other, works for a healthy environment,
promotes Unitarian Universalist values,
and acts as a vigorous advocate for social justice.
Welcome to the San Marcos Unitarian Universalist Fellowship! We invite you to join us as we strive to build lives of love and justice together. Whoever you are, and wherever you are on life’s journey, you are invited to participate in the full life of our congregation. We are a group of people committed to searching for deeper meaning in our lives, building community together, and being of service to others. We invite you to come just as you are and join us in community.
The San Marcos Unitarian Universalist Fellowship is an open-minded religious community. We support, encourage, and challenge each other on our search for greater meaning in our lives while promoting through our actions greater justice and compassion in our wider world.
Our worship services are centered on our shared human experience, exploring life’s deepest questions through our Unitarian Universalist religious tradition along with other sources of spiritual wisdom and knowledge.
We welcome you to join us on this inspirational endeavor.
The Fellowship holds services every Sunday morning at 11 a.m. at the UCM Wesley Building (formally St. Mark’s Church and Christ Chapel). UCM Wesley is located at 510 N. Guadalupe St. in San Marcos, on the south side of the Texas State University campus. Sunday services feature Rev. Brian Ferguson, another Unitarian Universalist minister, or ministers from other faiths, but also lay speakers from the University, the community, or the Fellowship itself. To the right side of the page is next Sunday’s speaker. Miss a service or SMUUF event? Many past sermons are available in either print or on our Sermons page.
Nursery and Childcare: The Nursery is available for children three months to two years of age from 9:40 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. every Sunday and Childcare for older children is available from 9:40 a.m. to 10:45 a.m.
Children’s Religious Education is held during the Worship Hour. Childcare will be provided during Adult RE from 9:45-10:45. The children’s RE class is learning through Spirit Play — a Montessori-based teaching model for Unitarian Universalist RE programs. The children will hear a story from one of seven categories (Principles, Sources, Stories of the Mystery, Beginnings and Endings, Sacred Places, Church Corner, Ways to Pray, and Heroes and Heroines) and have time to reflect and wonder about each story. The children are able to choose an art response to further their analysis of each story. The goal of Spirit Play is to help children in living into their own answers to the existential questions for which we all seek answers. Available for all children three years and older.
