Our Mission is to Awaken Society to its Promised Wholeness.

 
 
 
 
 
 

In the heart of the city with the city at its heart The URC is a conceptual center of moral thought, voice, and action.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 

We carry out our mission through three avenues: Education, Coalition Building, and Social Engagement.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 

The faith community has a valuable role We partner with both congregations and other organizations in the community to pursue several collaborative initiatives.
