Join us on Sundays at 10:30 in person or virtually!

It is the start of a new congregational year!  Great things are happening this fall and we look forward to welcoming you to The Unitarian Society, whether you are visiting us for the first time, returning after a long time away, or coming back week after week.

Please mark your calendars to attend our annual Water Ingathering on September 11. Like last year’s, we hope to hold this hope-affirming, engaging service outdoors in our Sanctuary Garden and back parking lot. Gather a small container of water that is meaningful to you, bring friends and family, and come along to celebrate the start of a new year together. (No matter the weather, we will have a Water Ingathering service, but on Friday, we will make the decision about whether the weather will cooperate with us to hold this one outdoors).

This year, we are introducing or re-introducing some new opportunities to engage your mind and spirit, as well as strengthen your connection in community.

We have a robust Mindfulness & Meditation offering throughout the month with online offerings and hopefully some in-person offerings as well. Find more information at the Wellness tab on our website.

This year our minister, Rev. Karen, has invited the whole congregation to up our game when it comes to preparing for our individual end of life…and to do it together and in a playful way. She has developed an End-of-Life BINGO card (you can pick one up at TUS or request one be sent to you via the mail) to help inspire you to get done some of the basic tasks and decisions that we all need to attend to.  There are even prizes in June (2023) for folx who get a BINGO (5 in a row either horiztonally, vertically, or diagonally) and a bigger prize for anyone who gets a “black-out BINGO!” You can see more under our Wellness tab (please live-link back).

Throughout the year, we will be hosting Community Movie Nights – open to the wider community at no cost, showing movies in our sanctuary (that Rev. Karen will preach on, as well). We can’t share on our website the titles of the movies, but we can get creative about their descriptions.

Friday, September 23 7pm: What happens when a space storm severs all connection to Earth and a rookie astronaut must find her way back to earth, using the forces of gravity to help her find her way home. A 2013 film.

Friday, November 11 7pm: In this 2007 film, a lonely widow discovers that his apartment in Manhattan has unexpected inhabitants – undocumented immigrants who were fooled into renting it. Now their lives are entwined and nothing will be the same.

We look forward to meeting you, getting to know you, and welcoming your energies and ideas to our scrappy congregation.

Who are we? We are an eclectic group of individuals coming together in community since 1955, committed to growing ourselves, each other, and sharing our gifts for the healing of the world.  Some of us knew we were Unitarian Universalists before we stepped foot here.  Others discovered it over spending time as part of the congregation.  Some are still figuring it out.

We gather not because we share the same beliefs about the nature of god and the universe (we don’t), but because we believe that each of us is a gift and all of us together have a necessary role in making the world a better place.

We are a people across the age span – young, old, and in between — with an engaged and engaging religious education program on Sunday mornings, as well as Affinity groups to fit a variety of interests and cultivate connection.

We are proud to be a congregation that affirms people of all races/ethnicities, sexual orientations, and gender identities.  We are officially a Welcoming Congregation, knowing that our world and community is made richer by the presence of gay, lesbian, bi, straight, transgender, and genderqueer folks.

We are people who have doubt, express skepticism, embody faith, and welcome questions as much as answers – sometimes all at the same time.

We are called into community to believe what we must, to follow our path and support others on theirs, and to continually seek a purpose greater than any single person.

Our is a liberal religious tradition: we believe that truths are continually unfolding and are to be found in many sources, ancient and ever-new.

We understand that each of us individually, and all of us together, are part of an interdependent web of existence – that we can influence that web, but are also influenced and formed by it.

What joins us together is our engaged respect for each other, our commitment to the principles of Unitarian Universalism, and the ongoing promises we make to create a community together.

Who are you?

  • Someone seeking spiritual, intellectual, emotional connection.
  • Someone who wants to go deeper with your sense of engagement in the world, living your values and your faith out loud.
  • Someone who wants to engage in the creative dance between honoring our individual expression and our responsibility to community.
