We believe that diversity of religious expression enriches us all. Here you will find a variety of traditions and expressions, including: liberal Christians, Jews, humanists, atheists, agnostics, pagans, Buddhists and others discussing our beliefs and learning from each other.
We do not have one set of beliefs that everyone must share in order to join. We are not guided by a creed or dogma, but by a quest for truth and meaning. We are a caring, open minded religion that encourages you to seek your own spiritual path, wherever it may lead.
We are a welcoming congregation; we promote equal opportunities for all people and advocate the rights and acceptance of each individual.
We nurture community by offering programs, activities and worship services that enhance the values we hold in common, and honor the differences among us. We accept, encourage and challenge one another on our spiritual and personal journeys.
A Welcoming Congregation...
As a Welcoming Congregation, we actively welcome gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender people as full participants in the life of the church. We are committed to standing on the side of love in our congregational life and our advocacy in the larger community.

There will be pictures of some of the centuries-old Unitarian churches as well as the exquisite needlework and woodworking which continue to be done by our Unitarian cousins today.
