Our Gothic style church is built of Monson granite and measures 111 ft. by 80 ft. There are two towers, the taller 130 ft. high, the smaller 80 ft. high. The church building is one of the most beautiful edifices in the area with gloriously colorful stained glass windows. There is an excellent parish hall, religious education facility, and office space.
Our congregation is small but enthusiastic, friendly and caring. There is a balanced mix of long-term members and newer members who together face the challenges of planning and working toward the future of this congregation.
The Principles of the
Unitarian Universalist Association
WE, the member congregations of the Unitarian Universalist Association, covenant to affirm and promote:
- The inherent worth and dignity of every person;
- Justice, equity and compassion in human relationships;
- Acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth in our congregations;
- A free and responsible search for truth and meaning;
- The right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in society at large;
- The goal of world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all;
- Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part.
Come as you are.
What you believe, bring with you as you come.
If you have doubts, bring them with you also.
Come as you are, and inescapably
you must come if you would be yourself.
Of others, ask no more or less.
Let us be what we are as best we can.
No one is perfect.
No one is better or worse than another
for no one has lived the life of the others.
All are seekers, no matter how much they have found.
All are in need, no matter how much they resent it.
All are proud, no matter how humble they wish they were.
Let beliefs, doubt, shame, pride, humility,
and the inescapability of self set side by side in mutual
and self respect until there comes the feeling
that, in depth of understanding and of feeling.
WE ARE ONE.
