WELCOME TO UNITARIAN
Unitarian Universalism is a caring, open-minded religion that encourages you to seek your own spiritual path. Our Faith draws on many religious traditions, welcoming people with different beliefs. We are united by shared values, not by creed or dogma. Our congregations are places where people gather to nurture their spirits and put their faith into action by helping to make our communities (and the world) a better place.
“We are a diverse religious community that provides a nurturing environment where individuals are encouraged in their search for truth and supported in acting on their beliefs. We accomplish this in a framework of individual and community focus on justice, equity and compassion for all”
UU Seven Principles
We, the member congregations of the Unitarian Universalist Association, covenant to affirm and promote:
#1 The inherent worth and dignity of every being
#2 Justice, equity and compassion in human relations
#3 Acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth in our congregations
#4 A free and responsible search for truth and meaning
#5 The right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in society at large
#6 The goal of world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all
#7 Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part
UUCC Affirmation Love is the spirit of this church and service is its prayer. This is our great covenant:
To dwell together in peace
To seek the truth in freedom
To help one another
We recite these words each Sunday:
Love Is the Spirit of this Church,
And Service is its Prayer.
This is our great Covenant:
To Dwell together in Peace,
To Seek the Truth in Freedom,
And to Help one another.
Covenant is the silk that joins our Unitarian Universalist congregation, community, and individuals together in a web of interconnection. The practice of promising to walk together is the precious core of our creedless faith. We understand that conflict is evitable but processing the disagreement, listening to one another and hanging in with difficult situations is challenging. That’s why we make the the promise of working conflict through. We make this promise to one another to be in good relationship. We choose to practice these covenantal promises when we become members of the church in the hope of making ourselves and our interactions with others healthy and making the world a better place in which to live.
