Welcome to . . .


Channing Memorial Church Unitarian Universalist, where the focus is on the question, not the answer.  If you are searching for a religious community to which you can bring your whole self, and are open to being challenged spiritually, this congregation may be for you!


Here you will join with others whose spiritual journeys call them to:

  • derive a spiritual center from Jewish and Christian roots as well as personal experience and reason;
  • draw on myths and traditions of other cultures and religions;
  • gather for fellowship, prayer, music, silence and a sermon during Sunday morning worship;
  • explore the meaning of the “big questions” in a complex world, such as the reconciliation of religion and science, the nature of humanity and the existence of God;
  • nurture companionship on your spiritual journey with adult and youth conversation groups;
  • provide a stimulating religious education program for children; and
  • motivate beliefs and compassion into action to build a better world.
