Ours is a theology of engagement. We draw inspiration and truth from experiencing each other and the world around us. In doing so, we necessarily witness both the beauty and brokenness of our larger community and environment. We are here because we want to help heal the brokenness. We have chosen to do social justice work in our Unitarian Universalist congregations; in our religious community.

Once a month, the congregation donates half of its collection to organizations who live out values that make our world a better place. Last year, some of the organizations we supported were: Crisis Center North, UU Disaster Relief, Heifer International, UU Service Committee, Hearth, North Hills Community Outreach, and Northside Common Ministries.
Children’s Memorial Fund
The Children’s Memorial Fund is a grant making fund established in 1962 by Dennis Gilbertson as a memorial to his wife and children. The Unitarian Universalist Church of the North Hills oversees and distributes grants to relieve suffering of children here in our community and throughout the world without regard to nationality, creed, or race. Grants have been awarded for medical equipment, to support day camps, orpahanges, accessibility needs, musical instruments, and to bring together families in times of crisis.
