The Unitarian Universalists of the Chester River strongly supports individual spiritual growth. We have a Sunday service along with active adult and children religious education programs. We are an intentionally liberal and diverse community seeking to aid each other's individual spiritual growth. We value openness, community, growth and relationships.

It is the mission of the UUCR to foster liberal religious ideals through public worship, study, service, and fellowship; to provide a public forum to address religious, ethical, and moral issues; to support individual freedom of belief and caring human relationships; to become an intentionally diverse community; and to engage in promoting a just and humane social order.

Please join us. Sunday service is at 10:00 AM on Sundays.

This Sunday's Service

March 29th, 10 AM
Ms. Annie Lavin, "How to Cast a Spell."

Maybe it's time to give wizards and witches a break and acknowledge the powereach of us has to cast a "spell" over another, even ourselves. There's no need for an exotic chant; most carefully chosen words will do. Words have enormous power. Many of us have used them to influence someone's actions, goals, and reality. In turn, we've all felt the powerful influence of another's words -- whether from the grandstand, the pulpit, printed material, social media, or casual conversation. 

If we truly want to start thinking differently about things that matter, it's time to start speaking differently about them as well. Herein lies the power of the words we use, to create the reality we want.

UU minister Angela Herrera has written on this subject, and she has given permission and encouragement to include her thoughts in this talk. Come join the discussion as we gain a new appreciation for the power of words
