Love Lives Here!
Whoever you are. Whomever you love. Wherever you are on your journey in search for truth and meaning in your life. You are welcome at the UUFP.
UUFP is an inclusive and diverse liberal religious community that embraces people of many beliefs and welcomes people of all genders, sexual orientations and abilities.
"Love is the doctrine of this church,
The quest of truth is its sacrament,
And service is its prayer.
To dwell together in peace,
To seek knowledge in freedom,
To serve humankind in fellowship...
Thus, do we covenant with each other."
– Blake Covenant, adapted
Getting to Know Each Other
For some, visiting new places (like church) is done with ease. They want and even expect folks to approach and engage them; they eagerly dive right in. Others are more comfortable as initial observers “taking it all in”; they appreciate more time and space in a new setting.
We want you to feel welcome, but at your own pace. We offer ways (see below) to learn more about who we are, what we embrace and what we do. In the meantime, we'll extend a warm invitation and look forward to building relationship in a community we hope will be your new spiritual home!
- Join us Sunday Mornings for our multi-platform inspirational, creative, and thought-provoking worship services, classes and social time. We begin with Sunday Morning Forum, from 9:30 – 10:30 a.m., in the UUFP Office Building, with Children’s Classes being held simultaneously in the back RE room. Sunday Service commences at 11:00 a.m. for a family-friendly worship experience. Enjoy our gathering-get-to-know-each-other opportunities before and after service. (As public health conditions evolve, please visit UUFP Google Calendar &/or Events Calendar for schedule and platform [in-person and/or online] updates.)
- Read what members and friends say about what our shared community and liberal faith mean to them.
- Attend one of our Beloved Community Wednesdays activities or learning more about our spiritual growth and faith development through our Adult Religious Education and Children and Youth RE programs.
- Find ways to participate by checking out our upcoming events and connections information.
- Learn more about the “living tradition,” history, sources, values, and beliefs of Unitarian Universalism.
There are four handicapped parking spots located to the left side of the sanctuary building. There is one reserved spot located across from the main entrance for our service auction winner — otherwise you are welcome to park anywhere in the lot or along the road. Please be courteous to our neighbors, and do not block any driveways or fire hydrants.
Yes, we are.
Our sanctuary is equipped with a loop system for hearing aid users. Turn on the “T Coil” in your instrument, and sit in the center section towards the front for the best reception.
Of course! Children are welcome in our sanctuary.
The short answer is that we are “covenant based” rather than “creed based.” That is to say, guided by our seven Principles and six Sources, we make promises to each other, and to the world, about how we will behave and what we will do. Creed based religions usually require the recitation of a set of beliefs. We like to learn from the beliefs and the spiritual journeys of our members and other people and don’t require anyone to subscribe to a fixed theology or creed.
Indeed. Our congregation has gone through a Unitarian Universalist Association training process, and we practice being a “Welcoming Congregation,” which means “striving for radical inclusion and creating spaces that honor every part of our identities, backgrounds, and experiences.” We hope that you will find a home here with us.
Some people will dress in “casual” to “business casual” attire. Many are comfortable in shorts, jeans and a t-shirt; others prefer their “Sunday best.” What’s important is that attire concerns not keep anyone from visiting the Fellowship, seeking community and/or pursuing one’s spiritual journey.
