Welcome to our beloved community
If you are looking for a spiritual home where you won’t be told what to believe, where you will be welcomed, where your children will learn good values from many different religious traditions, you are at the right place.
We are a Welcoming Congregation -- all are invited to worship with us, regardless of your race, creed or sexual orientation. We believe in religious exploration, service to each other and to the larger community, and spiritual growth. We like to have fun, too! Join us on Sunday mornings at 10 for worship, or on a Saturday evening for a concert or karaoke, or a variety of educational, spiritual and social activities throughout the week. We are a loving, caring community and we invite you to explore and grow with us.
Shari Mellin, UUFE Board President
What's this I hear about sabbatical?
Our pastor, Rev. Amy DeBeck, will be on sabbatical from Nov. 1, 2015, through April 30, 2016. During this time, she will use the time to pause, reflect and grow through classes and other activities. It's a customary practice for Unitarian Universalist ministers to undertake sabbaticals of four to six months every five years or so. Expect Rev. Amy to return refreshed and recharged.
But what does this mean for the church? Our sabbatical committee, chaired by Terry Mark, has been preparing for this for months. We view the sabbatical as an opportunity for our congregation's lay leadership to grow as well and to undertake new things.
We are fortunate to be supported during this time by intern minister Jenny Peek and director of religious enrichment Michelle Richards. They and other lay leaders have mapped out worship services, education activities and pastoral care plans.
For more details you can read the brochure that the sabbatical committee developed.
