Chalice

    We light this chalice for Unitarian Universalism.
    This is a congregation of open minds.
    This is a congregation of helping hands.
    This is a congregation of loving hearts.
    Together we work for peace and friendship in our world.

Covenant

   Love is the doctrine of this church
   The quest for truth is its sacrament
   And service is its prayer.
   To dwell together in peace,
   To seek knowledge in freedom,
   To serve humanity in fellowship,
   To the end that all souls shall grow
   Into harmony with the divine:
   Thus we do covenant together.
