About Us

Unitarian Universalist Congregation (UUC) is a free church in the Unitarian Universalist tradition. As such, we keep our minds open to the religious questions people have struggled with in all times and places. Our worship services are a celebration of life, and of the Spirit of Life that sustains us. We gather together to engage in a shared search for truth and meaning.

Congregation in sanctuaryWe believe that personal experience, conscience and reason should be the final authorities in religion. We seek spiritual insights from all the great teachers of the world’s religions, and put them to the test of our hearts and minds. We uphold the free search for spiritual meaning, while celebrating unfolding truths known to teachers, prophets and sages throughout the ages.

We seek to act as a moral force in the world, believing that ethical living is the supreme witness of religion. We know that our relationships with one another, with other peoples, races and nations should be governed by justice, equity and compassion.

We affirm and promote the full participation of all persons without regard to race, color, gender, gender expression, affectional or sexual orientation, national origin or physical activity in all church sponsored activities.

There are seven principles which Unitarian Universalist congregations affirm and promote:

  • 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

Unitarian Universalism draws from many sources:

  • 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

These principles and sources of faith are the backbone of our religious community.
