We believe that faith is a journey we take together.

Religious education takes a lifetime. It happens both within and beyond a congregation’s walls. We support one another as individuals, families, and communities in an ongoing search for truth and meaning. We strive to guide one another—all ages among us—in religious questioning, personal change, and discovering ways to better live in faith.

Transforming Ourselves and our World

We affirm the inherent worth and dignity of all beings, and we believe each of us is responsible and capable to help change the world for the better. Through continually learning and growing together we encourage and support one another, and our children, to know and express our moral agency. From anti-racism and environmental justice to personal spiritual growth, using many formats for learning, Unitarian Universalist (UU) religious education taps the wisdom of diverse Sources. We help one another find grounding and connection with ethics, faith, spirit, and UU identity. We feed the faith development of everyone involved; teachers are learners, learners are teachers.

Welcome to Nancy Keeler, our new Religious Education Ambassador!

Nancy Keeler has a long history with Unitarian Universalism, though she has ties to other religious cultures including several varieties of Christian, Jewish, and New Thought traditions. A writer and musician, Nancy has experience working with all ages through an extensive career in educational, retail, and human development settings. Most recently she worked for four years assisting in church administration at First Parish Arlington.
Nancy believes that Unitarian Universalist principles are vital in today’s world for inspiring faith, peace and social justice, and she hopes to be a part of that through work in lifespan religious education.


We will be working hard to get a children’s program set up that will work for our families and congregation. If you have ideas, talents, or time to share, please let Nancy know.
Meanwhile, through the month of September, we’ll offer Sunday services that are sensory-rich, interactive, and engaging for all ages.

Adult Faith Formation: Soul Matters 

Small Group Ministry

Soul Matters groups offer the gift of spiritual connection. Around us swirls a shallow, frantic and materialistic culture that regularly leaves us cut off from our deepest selves, life’s gifts and needs greater than our own. Many of us come to church hungry to mend these sacred connections that get frayed and torn. Soul Matters exists to support this journey of re-connection to life, others and our selves.
