  • May 16 - Launch and Re-Entry - Dennis Perkins, followed by Annual Meeting (details above)

In many ways, our church's (and the world's) journey through the COVID pandemic is analogous to a spaceflight: shuddering entry into a territory inimical to life, followed by a dangerous re-entry requiring careful planning and, ultimately, faith.  A shortened service precedes the Annual Meeting, which all church members and friends are urged to attend.  Please see details above.


  • May 23:  Searching for Home...Again! - Rev. Nancee Campbell

This past year has been fraught with disorienting changes to the way we live our daily lives.  We will look at what we've been missing and what we can look forward to as life threatens to return to normal.


  • May 30:  Bless All Who Serve - Katie Covey

Memorial Day Weekend is a time for honoring the people who have died in the performance of their military duties.  Come find out how our UU principles shape those in military service.  We will also honor the veterans among us.  I will invite you to share a story from your own or a family member's military service.


Even though our services are online, we gratefully accept Offerings, which can be made by mailing a check to PO Box 435, Waterville, ME 04903-0435 or by using the "Donate" button found on this page.  (FYI, with the "Donate" button, 2.9% of your contribution goes to PayPal.)  Thank you!

WELCOME!

 

We are a welcoming and inclusive community of faith.  We are home to the spiritual-but-not-religious, to the religiously unaffiliated, to current and former members of other faith traditions, and to life-long UUs.  We believe in the divinity of the human spirit.

 

Our faith is rooted in The Seven UU Principles.

 

Please explore our site, and reach out to us if you have questions or would like more information.  We hope that you will find something meaningful, something to feed your spirit,  something that speaks to your heart and nourishes your soul.
