About Us

The faith we live by in this church searches for truth in our own individual hearts, in our own life experiences, in the many faith traditions and philosophies that nurture us, in the explorations of science. Ours is not a blind faith: It is based neither on creeds, the scriptures of any particular religion, the pronouncements of a church hierarchy, nor the words of any single person. Rather, we submit our beliefs to the test of knowledge, reason, and compassion. Our faith aims to treat all humans irrespective of race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, or religious belief with caring and respect. Ours is a faith of deeds and commitment to building humane character and love for the natural world. It is a faith of the free mind and the loving heart.

Hunger Communion "Enough To Eat"


Reverend Tim Barger

Worship Associate Karen Christie

11/19/2017 

Before the Thanksgiving holiday, we remember that everyone doesn't have plenty, or even enough to get by. We'll observe a communion calling attention to abundance and scarcity.

Thoughts, Prayers, and the M16


Reverend Tim Barger

11/12/2017 

With yet another mass shooting, and again in a church, we've changed the service topic so we can talk about guns, the intended purpose of assault weapons, and what we Religious people can do in addition to sending thoughts and prayers.

Halloween!

We'll have an early observance of Halloween. Not too frightening, but tying Unitarian Universalism to what's become a popular holiday.

The Other Side


Reverend Tim Barger

Worship Associate Sierra Webb

10/15/2017 

Unitarian Universalists have differing views about death. There is no dogmatic position about an afterlife; our attitudes range from death being attainment of paradise to when you're deceased, your existence ceases. This sermon will look at thoughts of death, including the work of some psychics who have made claims of communicating with the dead.
