What do you do during sunday services?

Our Sunday Services are varied and unique, but most follow the basic liturgy of a liberal Protestant worship service.

There is usually opening music followed by a statement of welcome and a call to worship.

This is followed by church announcements, brief statements of personal joys or concerns, an offering, hymns, meditation or prayer followed by the main speaker and the sermon.

There may be a closing hymn followed by closing words.

Often there is an interactive element in the service, whether a simple ritual (always totally optional) or a brief discussion.

Is there a dress code?

There is no dress code — generally dress is Northwest casual which can range from dressy or conservative to T-shirts and jeans. Wear what you are comfortable in — you will be welcomed!

What are the facilities like?

The Fellowship building is single story with a wheelchair ramp. Two handicapped parking spaces are available on either side of the ramp.

General parking is available on the north and east sides of the building and across from the entry. You may also park in the spaces adjoining the Post Office building to the east.

What do Unitarian Universalists believe?

Unitarian Universalism is a liberal religion that encompasses many faith traditions. It includes people who identify themselves as Christians, Jews, Buddhists, Hindus, Pagans, Atheists, Agnostics, Humanists and others. As there is no official Unitarian Universalist creed, we are free to search for truth on many paths.

We uphold the free search for truth. We will not be bound by a statement of belief. We do not ask anyone to subscribe to a creed. Ours is a free faith.

Unitarian Universalism embraces all sexual and racial identities.

Although we uphold shared principles, individual Unitarian Universalists have varied beliefs about everything from scripture to rituals to God.

Do you have accommodations for the hearing & vision impaired?

Earphones are available at the back of the hall for those wanting to better hear the service. We are also equipped with a hearing loop system similar to what was recently installed in the Lincoln Theatre. With short notice we can usually have written copies of sermons available. Large-type hymnals are available.

Do you have wheelchair access?

The Fellowship building is single story with a wheelchair ramp. Two handicapped parking spaces are available on either side of the ramp.

Do you have a children's religious education?

We have a children’s religious education program, so bring the kids!
