Mission and Vision Statement Approved

At the Congregational Meeting on November 15th, the congregation approved our new mission and vision statements:

Mission Statement:
Ours is an inclusive religious community
that inspires personal and spiritual growth.

We care for one another.

We strive for social justice,
a healthy environment
and a peaceful world.

Vision Statement

We commit to being an inclusive, loving, thriving community that promotes spiritual growth and offers emotional support to the congregation and the larger community.

We are an open-minded, liberal community that is part of a larger religious Unitarian Universalist movement that draws on the wisdom and insights of the world’s religions and philosophies.

We dedicate ourselves to creating a spiritual home and a peaceful refuge where we:
foster a sense of personal responsibility to this community and
encourage each person to use and develop her/his individual gifts through multiple ways of expression, learning and interaction.

We celebrate rituals and traditions that both ground us and open us to deeper experiences.

We provide intergenerational activities based upon our shared values of social justice, environmental stewardship, celebration of beauty and wonder and our desire to deepen our relationships and connections with each other.
