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
Sunday November 29th. 10 a.m.
Mr. Aubrey Fox
"The State of Peace in an Increasingly Divided World."
Music on our new-to-us piano by local pianist Dick Durham.

What are the global and regional trends in peace? What are the main factors that build peace and how can violence be prevented? Tools of the Institute for Economics and Peace, The Global Peace Index, and Global Terrorism Index (recently released) explore these questions, analyzing recent trends in militarization, safety, security, and ongoing conflict. Aubrey Fox will discuss the latest, ever changing findings and welcomes your inquiries and experience.

Just after service: Holiday Decorating of our Sanctuary is ON this Sunday!  Please stay after the service and hour this Sunday to join us as we transform our sanctuary space into the holiday mode.  The freshly cut tree will be ready for adding our decorations.  The names, ages and suggestions for our "giving tree" family will be ready for you to take home and shop for.  We have 8 kids in the family this year!
