Our congregation lifts up our lives within community so that we may feel ourselves more deeply rooted, and empowered in our transforming commitments of greater loving, wider justice and deeper happiness.

Please join us as we create community, grow in spirituality, practice charity and strive for Social Justice. We welcome you in your struggles, your doubts and your dreams.

The Board of Trustees has designated the church's Green Team as coordinator of this effort. All church members and organizations will be invited to participate, and the Green Team is looking for YOUR ideas and hands as we move toward a sustainable church operation.

An activist, sometimes in compassion to correct inequities, sometimes in concern, seeking alleviation of outright wrongs, my spirituality was always a part of my activism; however, as one alone. This pursuit was within a mainline denomination. Now, as a retired widower, Unitarian/Universalism fits me extremely well.  From within the congregation, among fellow members/friends, I multiply my activism, my compassion.
