"Caring for the Earth and each other because our lives depend on it."


Gaia Community is an earth-based, pagan Unitarian Universalist congregation meeting in the Manheim Park neighborhood of Kansas City, Missouri. We meet every Sunday at 3 p.m. Each week we present either a participatory pagan ritual, a discussion forum, or a class. See our calendar to stay up to date with events. We also offer KidSpace, our children's program, during the service.

We welcome all who share our values and our commitments, regardless of age, race, color, ethnicity, sex, gender identity, sexual or affectional orientation, or disability.

To the left, you see an altar built at Summer Solstice 2014, to honor the Sun and the animal spirits. Like this one, many of our altars are built by the congregation during the ritual. We would love to see you come out to add your personal touch to one of our future altars!

Learn more about us, or keep reading on this page for a list of upcoming events. You may also want to check out our newsletter, the Earth Healer.

Sometimes titles change during planning, but the topics don't usually change. Furthermore, occasionally classes & workshops move around. Please keep an eye on this page to stay up to date.

Gaia T-Shirt Sale!

We are pleased to announce that we now have shiny new logo t-shirts for sale at http://gaiauu.spreadshirt.com/!

Check them out - we are currently offering either the multi-colored logo on white shirts, or a white logo on green shirts (but it's spreadshirt, so you can get other colors if you like).

Gaia makes a few dollars off of each shirt sold, so this is a fundraiser as well as a way to show your affiliation with the community.

Current Operating Budget

Gaia Community's annual budget goes to both basic expenses such as rent and paying our KidSpace teachers, and more lofty goals such as donating money to charitable causes and supporting the Unitarian Universalist Association.

The proposed 2014-2015 budget can be viewed here. At June's RfB, we will approve the budget. If you have questions or comments in the meantime, please contact Kimberly.
