IMG_1870People’s Church was established in 1855 by religious liberals who believed that religion consisted of more than creeds and narrow doctrine.  This premise carries forth to today.  Walking in the doors of People’s Church connects you to our legacy of tolerance, acceptance, peaceful living and the free search for truth. People’s Church is a welcoming congregation that encourages visitors to attend.

People’s Church is a Unitarian Universalist congregation.  Unitarian Universalism is part of a movement which is more than 450 years old.  It is a liberal religious tradition that does not prescribe to a mandatory set of beliefs or a restrictive creed.  Each individual is free to undertake his or her religious spiritual life according to the dictates of the conscience of reason.

Our goal is to be a supportive community, nurturing the lives of all who come, while respecting each individual’s independence of thought. In answer to the question, “Are you looking for a religious home?” – Unitarian Universalists might answer in the following ways.*

“I want a religion that respects the differences between people and affirms every person as an individual.”
“I want a church that values children, that welcomes them on their own terms – a church they are eager to attend on Sunday morning.”
“I want a congregation that cherishes freedom and encourages open dialogue on questions of faith, one in which it is okay to change my mind.”
“I want a church that acts locally and thinks globally on the great issues of our time – world peace; women’s rights; racial justice; homelessness; gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender rights; and protection of the environment.”
“I want a church that provides comfort and support so that I can carry on when difficult things happen in my life or in the world.”
“I want a place where my partner and I can come where our differing religious beliefs will be honored.”
“I want a place where my non-traditional family can be welcomed.”

The best way to get to know us is to come, see, think, and explore with us.
A warm welcome awaits you.
