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.

Message from Our Church President - 5/2/22

(excerpts)

 

It is my privilege as your current president to welcome you back to church on Sunday, May 8 for our first in-person service in over two years. We are still being cautious and require that you follow our guidelines [see latest advisiories below]...

Anyone who wishes to continue to attend via Zoom can do so.  The virtual (Zoom) portions of our multi-platform services will be simple to start with and you can expect them to get better as our expertise grows.

 

Along with the return to church we are planning to bring back the Annual Yard Sale on July 9th....

In our discussions in the Second Hour portion on April 25 there was a lot of optimism and energy. That vigorous spirit will help us as we meet, agree upon, and act on our future course. I look forward to walking with you all on this exciting new path of our church.

Respectfully,

Rurik Spence, President
