What Is Worship?
Worship can be defined as giving honor, reverence and regard to something. In our congregation, worship does not refer to adoration, but more often to reverence and gratitude for the wonder of nature and of being.
We gather for our Sunday morning services to nurture our spirits, to further our search for truth, and to provide a warm, open, supportive community for people who believe that ethical living is the supreme witness of religion. Worship services at other times include weekly meditation, Hannukah, Solstice, and other celebrations from other religious traditions. We also hold Covenant Groups which encourage spiritual development through exploration of monthly themes in a small group setting.
Unitarian Universalism is a liberal religion with Jewish-Christian roots. It has no creed. It affirms the worth of human beings, advocates freedom of belief and the search for truth and meaning. We celebrate a diversity of beliefs, guided by the Unitarian Universalist Principles.
Music from our talented community and from our outstanding choir is often a featured part of Sunday service. Several times a year, our drama group, the Chalice Circle Players provides a program either as a part of a Sunday service, or as a special presentation at another time.
Religious Exploration (RE) is offered during the Sunday service for preschool and school age youth. Childcare is offered for infants through 2 years of age. Adult Religious Exploration programs including meditation, retreats, book groups, and classes are available at other times.
