"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.

What to expect on Sunday morning

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.

We’re on Summer Break

The church is currently on its annual summer break. Weekly Sunday worship services will resume after Labor Day. We invite you to check this page periodically for updates, and also to subscribe to our e-newsletter to keep informed about upcoming events and activities. Contact the church administrator to have your email address added to the subscriber list.

During the summer, we have weekly informal, lay-led services on Tuesday evenings. The services are held in the parish hall parlor.

Spiritual Rites of Passage

Tuesday, August 12, 7:30 p.m.
We are all familiar with religious rites of passage, often grounded in passages of time.  UUs have a few; most other faiths have many.  Our inner spiritual self may or may not evolve or develop in a way that coincides with a set timetable of ritual-based events.  Discussion and reflection will include exploration of our experiences, with the spiritual milestones that mark our journeys. Karen Bishop will lead the service.

Gospels for Agnostics

Tuesday, August 19, 7:30 p.m.
Julie McVay will lead the service.

Spirituality and Social Justice

Tuesday, August 26, 7:30 p.m.
How do our beliefs inform our views on social justice? When work for justice becomes frustrating, tedious, or even dangerous, how might our interior life sustain us?  After brief readings, we will share our thoughts and experiences about possibilities for the integration of justice with spirituality. Madeleine Cousineau will lead the service.
