Communications Request Submission Form
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.

A personal service on aging, connected to Rev. Tim soon reaching age 60. Music Notes: Bonnie will bring her oboe and play a medley of blues melodies as a special music soliloquy. The oboe adds an extra pensive sound to the blues. The Gathering will entertain us with "When I'm 64" by The Beatles.
Commissioned Lay Ministry and Advent Sunday
Advent is a time of waiting in darkness. Yet, it is darkness that absorbs heat. And heat that causes transformation. I have been seeking a transformation to a mature faith. A liberal religious faith where we all answer the call of the world's grief. In community, I want to be ready to act justly, love mercy, and walk humbly. Transformation to this maturity of faith is, for me, becoming commissioned-lay minister.
Worship Associate Lynn Lyle
Members of the Bahá'í Faith are celebrating the 200th anniversary of the birth of Bahá'u'lláh, the founder of their faith, this year. We will look at some common ways between Unitarian Universalism and the Bahá'í Faith.
Reverend Tim Barger
Before the Thanksgiving holiday, we remember that everyone doesn't have plenty, or even enough to get by. We'll observe a communion calling attention to abundance and scarcity.
With yet another mass shooting, and again in a church, we've changed the service topic so we can talk about guns, the intended purpose of assault weapons, and what we Religious people can do in addition to sending thoughts and prayers.
Our worship services are held each Sunday at 11:00 a.m. We offer many opportunities to engage in fellowship directly after service in our Fellowship Hall. We have Lifespan Faith Development programs for children and adults September through May. We will be glad to see you here!
