Welcome to a church that illuminates the quest for responsible service and religious insight. 

Each Sunday and throughout the year, we share insights and explore what it means to be a Unitarian Universalist.
Service themes include exploring our principles, developing a caring community, discovering spirituality with a strong emphasis on
social activism. Here you will find a welcoming and accepting religious home to promote your own spiritual path and search for truth.
Visitors are always welcome and childcare is provided. Please join us!

Sunday Services are held at 10:30 am at 116 S. Clara Avenue (Please scroll down to the bottom of the page for directions)

Our Principles...

The inherent worth and dignity 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 world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all;

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

 The Living Traditions from which we draw...

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

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
