Weaving a Tapestry

Tapestry UU Church of Houston’s History as a Welcoming Congregation

Although Tapestry UU Church came into being in 2019, it was initially founded in 1995 as Northwest Community UU Church, and we have long been proud of our congregation’s welcoming attitude to newcomers of all stripes and persuasions. In 2007, NWCUUC undertook and qualified for UUA Certification as a Welcoming Congregation.


In 2013, NWCUUC merged with First and Thoreau UU Churches and became "One church in three locations." All three "campuses" were designated as Welcoming Congregations, and they each formally renewed their certifications in 2014.


In 2020, Tapestry members agreed to implement the process of annual recertification. Our goal is to ensure that all our church’s members fully appreciate and live into the requirements of Welcoming Certification and to become formally recertified as a Welcoming Congregation in 2021.
