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.


Earth Day and Flower Communion

Reverend Tim Barger and Judy Trautman

Worship Associate Joe Moran


On this Memorial Day weekend, our annual flower ceremony will commemorate Earth Day which was April 22nd. Bring one flower to church, leave with another, celebrate the beauty of nature, and know that it's our ecological care that will help to continue life on earth. This Green Sanctuary Service will explore how all earth is sacred by reexamining the Green Rule Poster. Flower ceremony will follow.

Feeling, Learning, Searching (Heart, Head, Spirit)

Reverend Tim Barger

Worship Associate Luanne Billstein


In a way, there are three separate personal locations for people's religions: heart, head, and spirit. Rev. Tim will talk about the emotional, intellectual, and soulful aspects of faith and how we might use them together.

RE Sunday

Is Poverty A Sin?

David Strickler

Worship Associate Melissa Jeter


The Poor People's Campaign will take-off in May with 40 Days of Action. This sermon will focus how UU's can ally themselves with this call for moral revival and how the concept of intersectionality relates to building this coalition.

Animal Blessing

Reverend Tim Barger

Worship Associate Karen Christie


It's been a while since we've had an animal blessing. We'll take advantage of the spring weather, possibly meet outside, and all are invited to bring their animals-in real life or through pictures-to be blessed as we acknowledge the importance of animals in our lives.
