Our Church’s Mission and Vision
Adopted by the congregation on December 4, 2011:
Mission: We are an open and caring congregation. We nurture spiritual growth through worship, education, social justice, and service to others.
Vision: Our congregation is a source of sanctuary and inspiration. We embrace creativity, inclusiveness, and spiritual exploration. We share humane values and we work together to create a better world.
You too might be a Unitarian Universalist – and not even know it.
Are you looking for a religious community in which to seek spiritual growth? Are you eager to consider religious questions with others who are not always certain they have all the answers, but who are determined to keep searching for them?
Would you like the fellowship of others for worship, discussion and education, friendship and mutual support?
Are you seeking a church where the freedom of the pulpit and the freedom of the pew are equally respected?
Do you desire an opportunity for women and men, regardless of race, color, religion of origin, sexual orientation or political affiliations, to come together and be more concerned with the love of people than the love of things?
Do you want children to be helped to develop their spiritual curiosity, compassion and critical thinking?
Do you wish to preserve and extend the traditions of democracy, freedom of conscience and human dignity?
