UUSM Mission, Vision and Purposes
- We are a religious community of open hearts and open minds
working together to transform ourselves and the world.
- We are a growing, welcoming, and diverse congregation,
grounded in and living out our liberal religious values.
- A sense of transcending wonder inspires our life together as a religious community.
Through a diversity of services and rituals, we open our hearts and minds,
and are moved to take action in the world.
- All people are welcomed, dialogues flourish, and
relationships grow and deepen through joyous and difficult times.
Individually and collectively, we exemplify love, compassion, respect, and hospitality,
both within our congregation and in the greater community.
- We invite and encourage all congregants to participate in congregational life,
and we create opportunities, through social and spiritual fellowship,
for everyone to form deep and lasting connections.
We create meaningful connections with other Unitarian Universalists,
and with other religious and service groups.
- We have a cohesive and engaging lifespan religious education program,
which inspires us to understand Unitarian Universalism,
to nurture our spiritual growth and identity, to live in accordance
with Unitarian Universalist principles, and to develop our leadership abilities.
Our religious education program attracts and serves the greater community.
- We demonstrate our liberal religious values through effective social action,
providing leadership and creating partnerships in the local community and beyond.
- We are generous with our time, talent, and money. Through our stewardship,
our congregation thrives, and we create greater justice, equity,
and compassion in the local and global community.
