Welcome, guests and visitors!
Click here for a special message to guests and visitors.
Here we affirm and promote reason and the scientific method as the tools in learning to love each other and live in harmony with the earth.
We have no creed, but we do strongly encourage everyone to treat each other with respect. We are affirming and promoting the inherent worth and dignity of every person.
Our religious education program helps our children develop their own common sense and logic in evaluating religious claims. We provide a safe place to help children learn and talk about the big issues such as God, Death, and Sexuality.
We are a Welcoming Congregation, celebrating and affirming the active presence here of gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and heterosexual members and friends, and their families.
We are a Green Congregation, promoting respect for the interdependent web of all existence.
