History of Emerson

Emerson Unitarian Universalist Church, a member of the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA), was chartered in 1960 to serve the growing western suburbs of Houston. The congregation’s members reflect an energetic diversity of religious belief, race, ethnicity, age, gender identity and sexual orientation.

Emerson is a Welcoming Congregation (LGBTQ friendly) and its main building is the first church facility in the nation to earn LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environment Design) certification.
