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

Welcome!

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 the door to 4327 Troost Avenue, the location of the Ubuntu Village Community Center, where we meet each week. We hope to see you there!

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.

Coming Soon to Gaia Community

Here is a list of Sunday service titles for as far out as they are planned. Currently, the Ritual Teams Committee plans rituals four times a year. Our calendar will be the best place to read information about these rituals, which is usually available a few weeks before its date. 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.

2014 Penny Auction

It's time once again to start gearing up for God Auction! Penny Auction is underway! Every Sunday through potluck at Beltane, vote for your favored Power(s) with your loose change. We accept US coins, because foreign currency and things that look like coin but aren't money make the bank unhappy. Each week, we'll update the totals so you can see if your favorite is slipping. The top 3 powers when all is said and done advance to God Auction in July. A new addition for this year will be the Penny Auction Pep Rally, held in late April. At the pep rally, you can drum up support of your favored powers. More info on that as it draws nearer.

Type: 
Other Meeting

Join us for a forum dedicated to learning more about the powers in our penny auction. Come prepared to tell us about why we should choose your preferred power (or powers). If you don't have one, come to listen and perhaps become convinced! This year's penny auction has had a few upsets in the top 3 already. Just think how the standings could change!

KidSpace Plans:
Patron Deities
Gaia Community has a history of annually choosing Patron Deities. What deities have we had in the past, and how have they served Gaia Community. How do we help choose our patron deities?

KidSpace Involvement: 
Kids above nursery-age are welcome to attend with their parents, but the service will be geared toward the adults.
