HELLO AND WELCOME!
A Welcoming Congregation
If you are seeking a liberal religious home with a vital, caring, and creative congregation, enhanced by a dynamic spirit of community, we may be the church for you!
We are a small but active congregation with a wide variety of people sitting in our pews. We come from a variety of religious backgrounds, range in age from very young to very old. We are single, married, widowed, and divorced; We are straight, gay, and everything in between. We believe that all people have the potential for goodness. We revere the natural world and the diversity inherent within it. We aspire to be racially and economically diverse.
At the UUSR, we value freedom of belief-there is no creed you have to recite or memorize. We concentrate on deeds not creeds. We try to follow the seven principles of our faith, as well as highlighting several Sources of our "Living tradition". For a more thorough explanation, click the link to Newcomers. We call our religion a "living tradition" because revelation is not sealed; prophets are still being born.
The UUSR is actively engaged in social action.
We gather on Sunday mornings at 10:30am every week of the year. Religious Education and childcare are provided during the service, which includes readings, prayers, singing, children's stories and a sermon. The music ranges from Mozart to Brubeck; from the folk songs of James Taylor, to jazz renditions of Beatles tunes.
We look forward to seeing you. Welcome!
