All of our lives, we live in need of each other, and in need of ‘deepening places,’ too, relationships and communities where we feel seen and affirmed, loved and challenged, called to grow and become our better selves, more honest, generous and caring people.
All of our lives, we live with a sense of longing to belong somewhere, to be a part of some thing, some movement and purpose larger than ourselves alone.
At church, we aspire to create that kind of community.
At church, we aim to reach out to each other in love and receive in gratitude.
At church, we choose to show up, to be and become a part of building a vibrant
community and spiritual home; a place in our lives where we can bring our whole selves,
where we’re asked to listen with an open heart and be willing to be changed.
Church is a place where we can come together to grow our souls,
to feel our spirit enlivened with a sense of reverence and awe,
to literally be able to remember – to piece back together again –
our minds and hearts, and know we are connected, and dependent on each other,
and a part of some larger, magnificent whole.
We welcome you to explore ways you might choose to be
a part of creating & nurturing this vibrant church community I am grown by and love.
UU Minister, Rev. Mark Morrison-Reed has written this: “The central task of religious community is to unveil the bonds that bind each to all. There is a connectedness, a relationship discovered amid the particulars of our own lives and the lives of others. Once felt, it inspires us to act for justice.” How do we build connections & relationships in our congregation that call us to the sacred work of building beloved community?
This is “Hungry Sunday” – On one Sunday a month we collect non-perishable food items for Loaves & Fishes Food Pantry, located on our property across the parking lot.
Our last church hike this summer will be at Great Head & Sand Beach after church. Ask around for car pooling and directions.
