The Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Topeka is a people of diverse history and religious backgrounds who have similar values and ideals that need community to fulfill. Unitarian Universalist Principles, our Vision, Mission and Covenant are our binding tenets, but these are open to revision and change as ours is a non-creedal religion... we realize that we as people change, our culture and the world change, so our religious values need to be capable of speaking to the world as it is, not what it was.
UUFT, as all of UU, is self-governed and have democratically selected lay leaders. We belong to the Unitarian Universalist Association of Congregations (UUA) as our denominational affiliation. UUFT engages in a great deal of community building both within and outside of our walls. Volunteers and committees help carry out the work we do. No matter our differing theological or philosophical backgrounds, many of us find that our care for each other, our neighbors and our ecology call us to active social action.
Our Fellowship was started in the early 60's by folks wanting a more liberal religious option in Topeka, with a central mission to have non-creedal religious education available for children and adults. The building has been expanded twice, and a number of ministers have companioned us.
