What to expect from this beloved community
We do not believe in conformity. In fact, here at Union Church, we believe love demands diversity and rejoices in it. You will not be told what to believe or how to act, and the only expectations we have are that you be true to yourself and your values, and that you speak and act in love.
We do not believe in absolutes, or in certainty, or in absolute certainty. We believe love demands questions, and faith does, too. You will never be shut down for having doubts or questions; your doubts and questions will be as welcomed as you are. You will find a place to discuss and dig into your faith. After all, how can your faith be truly yours if you have not taken it apart, turned it inside out, examined it, and put it back together?
We do believe in your giftedness. You have unique and special thoughts, attitudes, and abilities that we are lacking if you are not here. We happily welcome you to explore whether Union Church is the best place for you to bloom and grow.
