Who We Are
Love is the spirit of this church, and service is its law. This is our great covenant:
To dwell together in peace, to seek the truth in love, and to help one another.
-Rev. James Vila Blake, 1894
- We are a congregation of free faith and religious diversity.
- We meet to celebrate the miracle of our being and the wonder and mystery of our universe.
- We seek to provide a caring, accepting intergenerational community which supports ongoing individual and spiritual growth.
- We strive to live our values, accepting our individual responsibility to be active in environmental and social concerns in our church, community, and world. And because we share these values, we include the voices and dreams of all who choose to gather with us.

Social Justice Focus for March: Reproductive Justice
NARAL Pro-Choice Ohio Foundation and Preterm Cleveland
Reproductive Justice, as defined by the Unitarian Universalist Association, is to create safe and healthy environments for children in our faith communities and campaign publicly for just and compassionate laws for family planning, reproductive health, and gender equality.
Our focus collection for March supports two local organizations with the same objectives as ours:
NARAL Pro-Choice Ohio Foundation, the educational partner to NARAL Pro-Choice Ohio, supports and protects a woman’s freedom to make her own decisions regarding the full range of reproduction choices through education, training, research and public policy.
Preterm was established in 1974 with the vision of promoting a world that values and supports all women across the reproductive spectrum. While the focus is on providing birth control and abortion services, Preterm also works to insure that all women may exercise their rights to determine when and if they will have children, become a parent and parent with dignity, and have safe and healthy pregnancies and family relationships.
