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 or visit us on Facebook.
|Sunday February 14th. 10 a.m.
Margie Conlin, "Freedom Riders of Chestertown."
Sunday service will address the climate of race relations circa 1962, including the attitudes projected from Washington College. Then we'll describe the Freedom Riders and their effect, if any, on Chestertown and Kent County. Several observations by local residents will be presented. For the third year in a row, we welcome the "Pilgrim Travelers of Pomona," a four-piece band that will play Negro spirituals and other pieces.
And, in celebration of Black History Month, we are pleased to exhibit works in our sanctuary by local artist Kevin L. Harris, who paints portraits, abstracts, trees, and cultural depictions on glass.
|RE and Child Care Provided|
Religious Exploration for youngsters and childcare for infants and toddlers will be available during the service.
