"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 altar built for our ritual which welcomed Danu, Irish Mother Goddess, as patron of our community for the coming year (until July 2015). We'd love to welcome you to our community!

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.

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.
