We are a Welcoming Congregation of over 300 members, founded in 1847. Our worship services inspire us to grow and change together.
Unitarian Universalism is a covenantal religion. This means that agreements of relationship, not creed, define our faith; our love and respect for each other extend "beyond belief."
our actions in the world and how our individual beliefs inform them.
This congregation, as a member of the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA), covenants to affirm and promote the Seven Principles. We are also part of the MidAmerica Region UUA, which includes nearly 200 UU congregations in parts or all of these states: Illinois, Wisconsin, Indiana, Michigan, Missouri, Kentucky, Ohio, North Dakota, South Dakota, Minnesota, Iowa, Kansas, and Nebraska.
The UU movement formed when the Unitarian and Universalist denominations merged in the 1960s. Since then, it has evolved into a tradition that embraces wisdom from many religions and humanist traditions as well as personal faith journeys that are not described by any of those labels. The late Rev. Forrest Church said, "One Light (Unitarianism) shines through many windows (Universalism), illuminating human minds and hearts in many different ways."
