A Church that Puts Love at the Very Center of Our Life Together
Our mission: To create and sustain a welcoming and caring community that embodies our UU principles, inspires spiritual growth without dogma or creed, and promotes and serves racial and social justice.
Rev. Peter Connolly preaching
Most Western religious traditions are founded on the premise that the deepest meaning we can find in our lives depends on a revelation from a supernatural source. A humanist perspective finds natural sources to be enough. Special vocal music will be provided by Nicola Wilbar singing The Chandelier.

It was a joy to dedicate the Avis Clay Parlor on Sunday afternoon with her children and family in attendance. And of course, even a greater joy to be present for the extraordinary Autumn Concert! Unfortunately, in the busyness surrounding preparations, an important element was left out.
December 3 Deadline! Please be sure to drop off your gifts with tags attached in the Avis Clay Parlor no later than Sunday service.

Volunteers: We need people, please! I’m looking for a few loving and caring people willing to sit with our children on Sunday mornings for RE to teach the curriculum with me. We rely on CORI’d people/volunteers to provide safety and learning for the children downstairs each week. You can let the DRE know you are interested during the service, coffee hour or by email/phone call! Our Annual Holiday Party for RE: We will be celebrating the holidays on Sunday, December 10. The children will be together from 12:00 to 2:00 p.m. for gingerbread making, holiday crafting, food and fun. There
