 Sunday Services: 10:30 AM A Unitarian Universalist Congregation A Welcoming Congregation 

We the member congregations of the Unitarian Universalist Association, covenant to affirm and promote these principles:

  • The inherent dignity and worth of every person.

  • Justice, equity and compassion in human relations.

  • Acceptance of one another and encouragement to Spiritual growth in our congregations.

  • A free and responsible search for truth and meaning.

  • The right of conscience and the use of the democratic Process within our congregations and in society at large.

  • The goal of a world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all.

  • Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part.

Unitarian Universalism (UU) draws from many sources:

  • Direct experience of that transcending mystery and wonder, affirmed in all cultures, which moves us to a renewal of the spirit and an openness to the forces which create and uphold life.

  • Words and deeds of prophetic women and men which challenge us to confront powers and structures of evil with justice, compassion, and the transforming power of love.

  • Wisdom from the world's religions which inspires us in our ethical and spiritual life.

  • Jewish and Christian teachings which call us to respond to God's love by loving our neighbors as ourselves.

  • Humanist teachings which counsel us to heed the guidance of reason and the results of science, and warn us against idolatries of the mind and spirit.

  • Spiritual teachings of earth-centered traditions which celebrate the sacred circle of life and instruct us to live in harmony with the rhythms of nature.
