"Be ours a religion which, like sunshine, goes everywhere; its temple, all space; its shrine, the good heart; its creed, all truth; its ritual, works of love; its profession of faith, divine living."

– Theodore Parker

Welcome, Visitors!

We extend a special welcome to visitors who venture through our doors to find out what we’re all about.

Our congregation includes people from many religious backgrounds and perspectives. We come together to learn, to care for one another, and to act for social justice in our community and in the world. All are welcome here, regardless of creed, color, financial circumstances, sexual or gender orientation, or wherever you may be in your religious journey.

Theodore Parker Church offers a loop system for the hard of hearing. Hearing aid wearers with a “T” (telecoil) setting can now hear the service broadcast directly through their hearing aids. Others desiring hearing assistance may check out a portable receiver and headset from one of the greeters.

Worship Services

Worship services take place every Sunday at 10:30 a.m. from the Sunday after Labor Day through Father’s Day (the third Sunday of June). Services last approximately one hour, followed by a fellowship hour in the parish hall to which all are cordially invited.

Sunday, May 31: “Holy the Spirit?”

We’re missing the Christian acknowledgement of Pentecost by one week, but take time to consider the intriguing concept of the Holy Spirit, recognized in all three Abrahamic traditions, though in decidedly different form. Does it have any relevance for us as Unitarian Universalists? Might we imagine that a breath of love enlivens our commitment to be in particular relationship with the world? This service will be led by the Rev. Anne Bancroft.

Sunday, June 7: “The Gift of Lifelong Learning”

This service will be led by the Rev. Anne Bancroft. We’ll be celebrating our children and youth with several Challenge Year participants offering their credos, and taking the time to appreciate all of those who contribute to our all-ages religious exploration.

June Meditation Sessions

Please join us in the parish hall parlor for meditation on June 3 and June 17, from 7 to 7:30 p.m. Come participate and, in addition, feel free to bring guests. Sessions will be primarily silent, with a poem or reading to start the session. Aileen Montour and Nancy Wilber will host these two sessions. Meditation experience is not necessary.

Meditation will continue in the parish hall through the summer as part of our Summer Gatherings (more information to come) and possibly into the church year.
