What to expect
At 10:20 am you have arrived. You have taken off your shoes and are hanging up your coat. Now where do you go?
As Unitarians we do not have a dogma or creed that we believe or follow. We have Eight Principles that we strive to consciously live by.

What do Unitarian Universalists believe?
Will I fit in?
Will I be pressured to join or be saved?
What provisions do you have for people with disabilities?
The Entrance level which has the lounge, main floor meeting room and offices is wheel chair accessible. The Sanctuary (Coburn Hall) access has a short flight of stairs. We do have a chair climber, but at present the Sanctuary is not wheel chair accessible. We are fundraising to bring full wheel chair accessibility to our building.
What should I/my family wear?
Is there childcare and/or Sunday School? What is taught?
We have a program for all ages–nursery and children’s programming happens during the Sunday service, usually in the lower hall. Justicemakers (ages 10-11) happens on Sunday evenings. Youth (12-19) happens once a month on Friday evenings. We have a part time Director of Family Ministry, who oversees our children’s program.
My child doesn’t separate well. Can he/she stay with me during the service?
Absolutely. Many parents, particularly of smaller children, keep their children with them in the sanctuary. There are some toys and art supplies at the “make as you listen” table at the back of the hall. Many parents also choose to be in the lower hall with their child, in order to help the child adjust and also to have a chance to chat with other parents. You are also welcome to breastfeed anywhere in our building or at our events. You are encouraged to do whatever works for your family.
How do you worship together if you don’t all believe the same thing?
Some of our services are more spiritual, others more intellectual. Some aim to inspire, and others to provoke or challenge. But all of them are grounded in freedom, responsibility, and respect. It is up to each individual to consider the speaker’s point of view and then to follow their own conscience and come to their own conclusions about the meaning of the ideas or experiences presented.
