Imagine a Religion...

Welcome To Our Community!

Our church is the home of people with Open Hearts and Open Minds, where being different is Not a sin, where we live by principles instead of creeds, and where we believe in life before death.  There are seven principles which Unitarian Universalist congregations affirm and promote:

  • The inherent worth and dignity of every person;
  • Justice, equity and compassion in human relations;
  • Acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth in our congregations;
  • A free and responsible search for truth and meaning;
  • The right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in society at large;
  • The goal of world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all;
  • Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part.

I'm New Tell Me More

article 2

If you are new to Unitarian Universalism, you may want to check out the Unitarian Universalist Association website to learn more about UUism. There you will find the history, principles, and ideals espoused by all UUA congregations, of which the Unitarian Universalist Church of Lawton (UUCL) is a part.  You can also find many YouTube videos describing Unitarian Universalism by clicking on this link.  (Please be sure to skip over the featured ad videos.)

If you plan to visit UUCL, you should know that we are fairly informal. Wear clothing that is comfortable to you - perhaps something you might wear to an informal dinner at the home of a close friend or relative (many of us wear jeans and a pullover shirt). You may sit anywhere you wish, as there are no reserved seats except for those with disabilities. You may find yourself seated next to a gay or straight person or couple, an atheist, an agnostic, a Christian, a Jew, a Pagan, or someone else or someone in between. We welcome all people with open hearts and open minds. We do not require you to recite any creed, to believe in anything other than what your own heart tells you (or does not tell you), we respect the religious and philosophical beliefs of others, and we consider ourselves a community supportive of each other in our search for truth and meaning.  If we have a period during our service for silent reflection, you may do whatever you wish, whether it is pray, meditate, contemplate, remember, or do nothing - it's up to you! If you visit us and like what you find, you are more than welcome to join us on a regular basis, and you may join our congregation as a member whenever you wish.

Our church is located at 9th & Gore (816 W Gore Blvd) on the southeast corner of Gore, across from Country Mart.  Parking is available in several places around our church building.  We try to reserve the parking spaces on the front (9th street) for the elderly and those with disabilities, but we also have parking available behind our building, to the east of us behind our neighboring building in the alley and also in front of that building facing Gore.  If you arrive and you have trouble finding a parking place, please find a temporary parking place, come inside, and ask us to help you find a better one.  It will be no trouble, and we'd love to have you stay!

Come Learn And Celebrate

article 1

Each Sunday we gather together to celebrate the mystery of life and the warmth of community. Our community is made up of people from all walks of life, and we have members who believe in specific spiritual or religious teachings, as well as humanist and secular philosophies. We have those who believe in a personal God, a transcendent God, no God at all, and those who simply say, "I don't know." What binds us together is not our individual beliefs, but our support of one another in our individual quests for truth and celebration of life, our common belief that we should strive for social justice for all, and our common goal of working to make the world a better place, here and now.

Our Adult Forum begins at 9:30 AM and is a time for discussion of a wide variety of topics, which could range from the news of the day to studying different religions to discussing humanist or religious philosophy. At 10:30 AM, our Sunday service begins, and since we choose not to have a minister, we feature various speakers who will talk to us about various subjects. Our speakers consist of university professors, psycholgists, philosophers, UU ministers, ministers and religious leaders from other traditions, and many others. After our services, we hold a "talk back" session where the members of our congregation have the opportunity to pose questions to the speakers, to ask for clarification, or even to challenge the speaker on a statement he or she made during the talk. We consider this a time of celebration, learning, and community.

SJ Tucker Concert

SJ Tucker          SJ TUCKER


On Saturday, April 4th, from 8 pm to 10 pm at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Lawton, S.J. Tucker will be in live and in concert!

“Tucker is not only fantastic; she’s like a character out of a fantasy novel. She weaves myth and magic into her lyrics as easily as a strain of cello, a lick of something electric, the chuffing of a train engine…Tucker has a knack – no, a genius – for weaving old ways with new.”

-C. S. E. Cooneyblackgate.com

“One of the foremost songwriters in the world of cabaret, Mythpunk, Faerie, Pagan, and general kickassery, S. J. has released over ten albums and isn’t stopping anytime soon!  If you like silly, sweet, fierce, funny, magical, mythical music, then S. J. Tucker is sure to enchant you.”


Join us for what is sure to be a magical, mystical, entertaining evening. The doors open at 7:30 pm.  Church youth will sell refreshments, and the proceeds from those sales go to the church.  Sooj will have CD’s and other lovely merchandise available.

Tickets can be purchased online by clicking on this link.

**NOTE: if space allows, tickets will be sold at the door as well: $25 for adults, $10 for youth ages 8-18, and $10 for students with valid campus ID.

    Symbol of Unitarian Universalist Faith


    A flame within a chalice (a cup with a stem and foot), represents the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) and is a symbol of the Unitarian Universalist faith.


    "At the opening of Unitarian Universalist worship services, many congregations light a flame inside a chalice. This flaming chalice has become a well-known symbol of our denomination. It unites our members in worship and symbolizes the spirit of our work."
    —Dan Hotchkiss


  • The UUA

    The Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) is a religious organization (PDF) that combines two traditions: the Universalists, who organized in 1793, and the Unitarians, who organized in 1825. They consolidated into the UUA in 1961.


    Both groups trace their roots in North America to the early Massachusetts settlers and to the founders of the Republic. Overseas, their heritages reach back centuries to pioneers in England, Poland, and Transylvania.


    Unitarian Universalism is a liberal religion with Jewish-Christian roots. It has no creed. It affirms the worth of human beings, advocates freedom of belief and the search for advancing truth, and tries to provide a warm, open, supportive community for people who believe that ethical living is the supreme witness of religion.
