Gather – Inspire – Transform.
We gather in loving community, inspiring one another
to transform ourselves to create a more just and compassionate world.
We are a compassionate, thoughtful, and diverse religious community who nurture and challenge each other to deeper understanding, meaning and purpose in our lives. We use our hearts and our heads (and a good dose of humor) to make a difference not only in our lives, but the lives of those beyond our doors. We encourage you to learn more about our beliefs, our services, and our history in the About Us section. Visitors are always warmly welcomed to our worship services!

Ingathering and Welcoming
Rev. Mary Hnottavange-Telleen
This Ingathering centers on a ritual which has become a tradition in many if not most Unitarian Universalist Congregations each September.
Two transcending themes are naturally built into it: first, the
recognition of water as the very symbol of life and the connections that exist between responsible human beings and earthly creation. Second, the congregation affirms once again that being together in our place of worship is the heartbeat of community and embodies a reflection of our
deepest reason for being together.
We meet for worship each Sunday at 10:30 AM.
You may enter the church either through the Sanctuary doors that face onto West Ferry Street, or through the Garden Entrance (handicap accessible) that is set back from the sidewalk at West Ferry and Elmwood Avenue, inside our lawn and garden area. We have a welcome station with a greeter at both entrances, where you may get a name tag and find out what you would like to know about the church.

Stewardship and the 2014 Annual Budget Drive – IMAGINE! Each year, the members of the congregation are asked to make a pledge of financial support, letting the church know the level of their giving for the coming year. This process allows church leaders to prepare a budget, approved by the congregation, to fund the activities and programs of the church. The Fair Share Giving Guide provides suggested giving levels to reflect your commitment and ability to do your fair share in supporting the church.
