Inviting all with open minds and warm hearts

We invite you to grow with us in a liberal religious tradition that respects ideas, values, diversity, and encourages the exploration of spirituality and life's meaning.

We promote the good in ourselves and in others by embracing moral and ethical values that honor humanity and respect justice.

Providing fellowship and support for all

Our community provides fellowship and support for individuals and families of all ages. We honor life's transitions with ceremonies. We celebrate changes in the season and special days throughout the year.

Sunday Service and Religious Exploration

We meet each Sunday at 11:00 a.m. for our worship and religious education. Our services are contemporary. Dress is casual.

Our Religious Exploration program provides children and young adults with warm and exciting experiences that focus on how we live each day within our Unitarian Universalist morals and values.

2017 WWNO/GNOUU Underwriting Campaign

Do you believe in supporting National Public Radio in the greater New Orleans area?

Are you already participating in regular WWNO 89.9 pledge drives?

Have you been meaning to support WWNO but haven’t gotten around to it?

For the sixth consecutive year, the Greater New Orleans Unitarian Universalist (GNOUU) committee is continuing an initiative to pool our resources to place underwriting spots on WWNO Radio 89.9, which is our local National Public Radio station.

Over the last three years our underwriting donation from all three churches has averaged $2200.00.

Our GNOUU donation underwrote WWNO’s Sunday morning show about religion and spirituality “On Being” for a whole year! The underwriting spots highlighted our belief in our first principle “The inherent worth and dignity of every person” and referred listeners to the GNOUU website for additional information.

To find out more about the show and host Krista Tippett ( GA 2016 Ware Lecturer!), go to or tune in on your drive to church (airs 10-11:00 am Sunday morning).

Is my donation tax deductible? Yes. Upon request, you will receive a receipt for your donation which is 100% tax deductible.

How do I donate? Cash or check. NSUUS contributors have three options:
1) If you wish to claim a personal tax deduction please make your check out to WWNO, and write “WWNO/GNOUU Underwriting Campaign” in the memo field and submit with your name and address to either one of our GNOUU board representatives – Terry Van Brunt or Dian McIlwain - so that WWNO can provide you with a donation receipt.

2) If no tax deduction is required please make your check out to GNOUU with the same “WWNO/GNOUU Underwriting Campaign” designation in the memo line.

3) Finally, if you are contributing in cash, just make sure the recipient knows that you are donating to the WWNO initiative.

When will this take place? The WWNO campaign started in December 2016 and will continue through February 2017.

Questions? Call or email Terry Van Brunt ( 985-778-9257) or Dian McIlwain ( /985-218-9015) ]
