We invite you to join us for worship in our beautiful sanctuary on Sunday mornings at 11 a.m. (unless otherwise noted). Worship is followed by Social Hour in the Parish House. Please join us for fellowship.
We gather to sing, pray, meditate and reflect on our lives and our place in this city and the world. Together we seek to build the Beloved Community. Our worship services are thoughtful and challenging, reminding us to Stand on the Side of Love. We believe that spirituality is lived in the world, not just in church on Sunday mornings. We have no creed or statement of belief, and are held accountable to one another by our Covenant, which we read each week. We welcome you to worship with us and hope that you will find your spiritual home here.
We are a member of the Unitarian Universalist Association of Congregations and covenant with others in affirming and promoting:
- The inherent worth and dignity of every person.
- Justice, equity, and compassion in human relations.
- Acceptance of one another and encouragement in spiritual growth.
- A free and responsible search for truth and meaning.
- The right of conscience and the use of the democratic process.
- The goal of world community with peace, liberty and justice for all.
- Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part.
Rev. Kathleen Rolenz said, “Throughout history, we have moved to the rhythms of mystery and wonder, prophecy, wisdom, teachings from ancient and modern sources, and nature herself.” Worshipping in our congregations you may hear a reading or perspective shared from any one of these sources from which our living tradition is drawn:
- 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.
We welcome you…Please let us know if you have any questions.
