In this month, when the congregation’s theme is Cultivatng Relationship, we’ll use stories from UU history, from OWL, and other parts of life to explore what it means to get proximate, how to handle the discomfort we sometimes find beyond our familiar, and the ways in which this teaching is expressed in numerous faiths.

In response to the COVID-19 health concerns, we are meeting online via the Zoom videoconferencing service. Click here to read our Covid Response Policy.  To join us, please complete the form found on Access Our Online Worship and you will be emailed access. We meet every Sunday at 1:30 – 230 pm. Newcomers ( to our church or Zoom) are encouraged to join in about 15 minutes early to get set up, oriented and meet a few of our members.  

In community we strive to Connect — forming meaningful relationships, Change — growing spiritually and personally, and Care — supporting each other as we work for a just and sustainable world.
