Our community worships weekly in our newly renovated sanctuary, a place of beauty and love where people of all ages and walks of life are welcome.

UU kids gather weekly on Sunday mornings to explore and learn about religious values, social justice, and spiritual practices like yoga. 

During worship and at other church-related programs we light the chalice, the symbol of our Unitarian Universalist faith. Here is a child-friendly version created during one of our religious education classes.

Unitarian Universalists stand on the side of love by supporting marriage equality. Here is Rev. Sandra Fees signing her first legal same-sex marriage license. 

We embrace opportunities to be good stewards of our planet. Pictured here are church volunteers helping to clean up a local park last Spring.

This year our congregation joyfully celebrated 10 years of shared ministry with Rev. Sandra Fees. 

The last weekend in February, 35 members of our congregation gathered to learn what it means to build an anti-racist multicultural world.

UUs responded then & now to the call to march for justice in Selma. Our minister Rev. Sandra along with 500 UUs marched on the 50th Anniversary of the Voting Rights Campaign. 

In our distinctly UU ceremony we celebrate the dignity of each person and the value of human community.

SUNDAY SERVICES are held weekly at 10:30 AM with gathering music at 10:20. Following the service, join us for coffee and tea, light refreshments and conversation.
