As the only Unitarian Universalist congregation between Plano, TX and Norman,
OK, Red River Unitarian Universalist Church aspires to meet the needs of
religious liberals living in a large area of north Texas and southern Oklahoma.
Red River UU members and friends come from Sherman, Denison, Pottsboro, Van Alstyne,
Howe, Savoy, Sadler, Southmayd, Gunter, Whitesboro, Whitewright, Princeton, and
Bonham in Texas and from Durant, Colbert, Cartwright in Oklahoma to attend
Sunday services and other church activities. Red River UU is lay-led congregation, which means
we do not have a minister. Our services are varied. They may feature a retired minister,
a lay speaker from the congregation, an all-music program, or a sermon from another UU church on video.
Our congregation comprises a diverse group of people from all over Grayson
County and Fannin County in Texas, and Bryan County in Oklahoma, who meet on Sundays and other
times in our building in Denison, Texas, because we
share common values and common goals. We don't all believe the same things
about God, Jesus, the afterlife, or other theological matters, but we all
share pretty much the same views about religion.
