Volunteering is a great way to get involved in your local community and give back. It can be a rewarding experience and a great opportunity to meet new people. Volunteering can involve various tasks, from helping to set up events and sorting items in the Thrift Shop to serving meals. No matter your skills and interests, there is likely a way to get involved.


We come together as a religious community upholding freedom of conscience, right relationship, and the inherent worth of all people. We value our diversity and pledge to care for one another in the spirit of compassion, to speak and listen to each other with respect, and to promote justice and kindness in the world.

We encourage people to try new things and learn new skills because we believe that living a life of integrity, service, and love requires practice and a variety of life experiences.  Sometimes, we find we have talents we didn’t even know existed.

We always welcome financial contributions to help us meet our budget and operating expenses. This community is beloved to us, and we give in a way that expresses that love. We do not require a tithe, though we ask you to consider giving generously.

Like many churches, we depend on individuals to help fund and carry out the work of our church. Our individual contributions support not only the local church but collectively, we support the larger denomination, the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA).

We know that the beloved community succeeds with many hands, making light work, and hope you will join us!
