UCM is a campus ministry of Northwestern undergraduate and graduate students who try to make faith relevant in daily life. UCM is an honest, safe, and inclusive community following the example of Jesus. We embrace openness, strive to love God, and serve others to the best of our ability.
Whatever your faith or doubts, you are welcome here.
What does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness and to walk humbly with your God? -- Micah 6:8
At UCM, we keep our hearts open to the beauty of creation, to the ways God can work through us, and to the love of warm authentic community. We also keep our hearts open to the cries of the oppressed, to the places we are called to be peacemakers, and the struggles of our community.
We keep our minds open to intellect, reason, and science. We accept doubt as a part of faith and refuse to settle for easy answers. We keep our minds open to different opinions, and we love our neighbors of other faiths.
UCM is a queer inclusive community.
