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 8th, 10 AM
Rev. Sue Browning

Join us in welcoming our UU neighbor, Rev. Sue Browning, who is in her second year of ministry at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship at Easton.  She will deliver a sermon that asks, "Do you ever find yourself in conversation with a listening partner you can't quite describe or name?" Rev. Browning will share her continually evolving sense of God, which includes her resistance to the question, "Do you believe (or not) in God?"  Being a recent graduate of Wesley Theological Seminary, she will also reflect on her decision to attend seminary and her experiences in becoming a UU minister.

During the service our Middle School group will focus on: UU Quest - What does it mean to be a Unitarian Universalist?
What's special about UUs? How do UUs live out their principles? Exercises will help the youth explore the sources of UU beliefs from "life rules" gathered from religious beliefs the world over. We will also take a look at the actions and lives of outstanding UU's in history and talk about how our beliefs develop and change depending on life experiences and maturity.
