Practicing Loving Community
“Unitarian Universalism is a liberal faith which draws on the truths of the world’s great religions. We are bound by no statement of belief, and our members tend to keep open minds in a continuing quest for their own religious and spiritual truths.”
Pathway to Membership
Love beyond belief
We are glad you found our website and we invite you to explore it fully. The best way to get to know us is to visit. Sunday services are held at 10:30 am September thru June. July thru Labor Day, service is at 10 am. You are invited to come, ask questions or just observe, to experience our vibrant community for yourself.
For more details, see our Frequently Asked Questions page, but here’s a preview:
What to Expect
On Sunday morning, we gather in the sanctuary for our regular services. There will be music and a chance to sing (if you want to), and offering (but first time guests are invited to let the basket pass), a 15-20 minute sermon by our minister or guest speaker, periods of silent reflection and a reading or two.
September to June, Religious Education classes are held for
pre-school through grade 8 during the 10:30 am service and visitors are welcome. Or if you prefer, children can stay with you during the service.
After services, we offer an opportunity to socialize during our Coffee Hour. Our Welcome area inside the main entrance, stocks brochures about many aspects of Unitarian Universalism. Greeters are also happy to answer your questions and help you get better acquainted. Feel free to ask for a tour of our building.
For more details, see our What Happens on Sunday section under Worship.
What To Wear
For our Sunday morning services, wear what is comfortable for you. Some people wear nice casual clothes. Some are happier wearing jeans. We want you to be free to pay attention to the message of the morning and the people around you without worrying about your clothes. We ask that you do not wear perfumes or scented lotions….and that you turn off your cell phones.
