About Spiritual Growth
Our Sunday services incorporate music of all kinds, elements from the dramatic repertoire, insights into faiths beyond our own.
Religious Education for All Ages
Our children receive an education grounded in our history, our principles, and with insights into world religions. Our adults are offered and encouraged to take part in a variety of opportunities that include interfaith exploration and dialogue, celebration of a variety of holiday and holy days, and deeper exploration into Unitarian Universalism.
Opportunities for, and Support of, Individual Spiritual Practice
We invite the talents of our members to share their spiritual practice with one another and provide the time and space. We provide opportunities for spiritual retreat with one another.
- Unitarian Universalism is a religion without creed or dogma.
- We don’t tell you what to believe or dictate or map your spiritual journey.
- We provide a safe space where we can find others who are on the journey
and share stories and experiences as we strive to live meaning filled lives.
Our Principles and Sources
Most of what we teach and preach is based on the 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.
In our Sunday Services as well as our religious education programs, we use the Principles and draw upon the Sources to help guide us on our spiritual paths.
Unitarian Universalism (UU) 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.
