This Fellowship began as a living-room discussion when a handful of people began seriously to ask the question, "Why don`t we go to church anymore?" The questioning led them to a newly created program of the American Unitarian Association designed to help lay-led groups provide liberal religion for adults and religious education for their children.
Unitarian Universalism does not require a profession of faith in a set of doctrinal beliefs. We are, instead, a diverse community of seekers, believing in the individual search for a meaningful faith. Many of us have come from other churches, leaving when we could not, in good conscience, continue to affirm their creeds. Through our participation in Sunday morning worship, in adult study, and in the life of the Fellowship, we find insight, understanding and inspiration.
Providing a meaningful religious education experience for our children and youth is a particular challenge and a strongly felt responsibility. Recent Sunday school topics include: an exploration of the special days of celebration from different faiths; a peace and justice curriculum; and an exploration of the creative process and the creative forces within and around us.
Social justice issues and social action are a key element of Unitarian Universalism and of this Fellowship. Over the years, our congregation has worked on Indigenous sovereignty, human rights legislation, the separation of church and state, reproductive justice, and quality public educational services. Our Sunday programs frequently reflect our commitment to social justice.
