In 2008, Channing went through the rigorous process to achieve the Unitarian Universalist Association Welcoming Congregation status. We continue to explore ways to deepen our commitment as a welcoming congregation.
… Somewhere a circle of hands
will open to receive us, eyes will light up as we enter,
voices will celebrate with us whenever we come into our own power.
Community means strength
that joins our strength to do the work that needs to be done.
Arms to hold us when we falter.
A circle of healing.
A circle of friends.
Someplace where we can be free.
