We are a community church with a covenant relationship with the Unitarian Universalist Association and the United Church of Christ. Both of these churches promote church polity, which means that self-government and self-determination form the foundation of what we do and how we do it.
Our members and friends come from more than 25 different denominations and religious traditions—as well as from no tradition at all. Accordingly, denominational labels are less expressive of our identity than our goal and purpose of responding to the needs and reflecting the aspirations of our congregation and community.

We represent varied and vocal opinions on spirituality, ethics, politics, and social responsibility. For example, we choose to give a significant portion (approximately 20%) of our annual budget to outreach, which is given to a variety of social projects for local, national and international causes researched and carefully chosen by our Outreach Committee. We also roll up our sleeves and perform service projects, as well as actively support the initiatives of our Faith in Action groups.
