Welcome

Two people talking for welcome

Are you looking for a community, a sense of fellowship, a way to make a difference in the world, a place to explore and deepen your spirituality?

We are a religious community of open hearts and minds working together to transform ourselves and the world.

We look forward to meeting you! Where ever you are on your life journey, you are welcome here.

Our Sunday services take place at 10:00 am. Our children's religious education classes are 11:00 am.

We hope you’ll join in our social time, coffee hour, Sunday discussion series and interest groups.

Check for our next Newcomers' Circle

This basic introduction to our community allows people a chance to get to know one another better and learn more about what it means to be a part of UUSM.

Our gatherings normally occur on Sunday mornings during social hour in the Hemingway Lounge, just across from the entrance to the sanctuary. Please check the calendar for upcoming dates, or contact the office for more information.

What to Expect

Our services are about an hour in length, andstained glass 200x include lively music, hymns, readings, silence for
meditation, and a sermon.

Prior to the service, some people choose to light a candle to honor a joy or concern.

Our services ordinarily incorporate the following elements: 

  • Musical preludes and postludes.
  • The children are with us at the beginning of most of our services, and we enjoy a brief period of spirited worship and a conversation which includes them.
  • We light the chalice, the symbol of our faith.
  • We have a truly wonderful choir that sings in most of our services.
  • Hymns sung by the congregation.
  • A time of silent meditation and reflection.
  • Pastoral concerns of the congregation are shared by the worship leader, and the congregation is given the opportunity to speak the name aloud, or call to mind and heart, the name of someone whom we might hold in our care. A candle is lit to honor the joys and concerns that remain silent.
  • A sermon, which frequently focuses upon contemporary themes as well as timeless issues of life.
  • We share our gifts of generosity through the taking of an offering.

Our current services can be found here.

Newcomers are encouraged to join us for coffee, tea, and light refreshments in Beck Hall during Coffee Hour.
