"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 Brigid's temple from our annual God Auction. We welcome her as our patron for 2015-2016, and you are also welcome to join us!

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.

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.

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). We also have a quite capacious tote bag and a lovely green sweatshirt with the white logo centered on the front.

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.

Please do note that the shirts are not all the same type of shirt, so check the sizing info before you order.

Ritual: Echoes of the Harvest

Oct 11 2015 - 3:00pm - 5:00pm

In song and prose, we write the story of this year's harvest. What will echo into the future from this year's work? Today we will tell our stories and celebrate the culmination of the work.

Please share your harvest with others by bringing items for Harvesters food bank. Please also bring your rhythm instruments, and a reusable drinking vessel.

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

Social Justice Committee

Oct 14 2015 - 7:00pm - 8:00pm
Committee Meeting

The Social Justice Committee meets on the second Wednesday of each month and usually meets at Ubuntu Village. Of late, the meetings have discussed ongoing seasonal charity projects, or ideas for the next one to come.

Contact David, Jamie, or Kimberly if you'd like to learn more, or have ideas for charity projects.

Games Night

Oct 16 2015 - 7:00pm - 9:30pm
Games Night

Games Night is a chance for Gaians of all ages to get together for fun, frivolity, and food, and NO OFFICIAL BUSINESS allowed! (We're not kidding - the Games Guru has spoken on this). Bring a game (or ten), bring a friend (or ten), or just bring yourself and a willingness to play and visit.

Snacks are welcomed but not required, to help the gaming crowds keep up their strength!

Forum: Alternatives to the Apocalypse

Oct 18 2015 - 3:00pm - 5:00pm

What if the future is bright? What if the coming changes are good ones that allow us to save the world from our follies in time? What if the very fact that we only see destruction on the horizon is speeding it on?
