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

May 31, 10 AM
Ms. Vida Morley
"Learnings from Nature and the Medicine Wheel."

Vida explains, "This topic came to me as I enjoyed our sermon by Barbara A. Meyers several weeks ago. Ms. Meyers is a feisty 84-year-old who invited us to 'enter the world of nature to awaken our senses, our sensibilities, and our souls to answer profound questions.' With interesting simplicity Ms. Meyers uses the Native American Medicine Wheel to find direction for answering questions while always working to become effective stewards of planet Earth.

"Sunday's service will include a brief introduction to the Medicine Wheel and then each of our group will be asked to share a learning from nature, whether in our own back yards, the Grand Canyon, or searching outer space.  It and we are all about nature."
