Seeking Truth, Sharing Love
Within - Among - Beyond

Welcome to this place of wonder and mystery. Welcome to this place of freedom and justice. Whoever you are, wherever you come from, whomever you love, you are welcome here. We are glad that you found us.

We gather with minds open to new truths and arms open to embrace one another. We come together with hearts open to spiritual transformation. We pause in reverence for the vastness of the universe. We praise the resilience of the human spirit and the love that embraces us always. We are building a beloved community together. We know that everyone has something to offer.

Won't you join us?

Our Covenant

We are a religious community that chooses to walk together in covenant. This is what binds us together, rather than a creed or common set of beliefs. Each week in worship we recite these words, by James Vila Blake, to reaffirm our covenant:

Love is the Spirit of this Church and service its law. 
This is our Great Covenant: 
To dwell together in peace; 
To seek the truth in love; and 
To help one another.

About Our Monthly Themes

Our monthly themes express Hope Church’s open-ness to theological exploration. They are not an endorsement of any particular creed or belief. Instead, they provide a monthly opportunity to examine in common a religious doctrine or idea. Hope Church is a questioning community. It is a safe place to bring doubt and new ideas. This month we are exploring “formation” together. Join us!

HOPE Community Events

Generosity Sunday


Generosity Recipient for
Augst 2014

New Life School, Uganda

Kkindu, Uganda is home to New Life School, a primary school that has become connected to nine U.S. UU Congregations through an innovative sponsorship program.

Holland Hall Spanish teacher Janice Moore traveled to Uganda in the summer of 2012 on behalf of the Unitarian Universalist Partner Church Council (UUPCC) and All Souls Unitarian Church to work as a support teacher at New Life Primary School in the small village of Kitofaali for six weeks. She returned to volunteer again for two months last summer.

She will be our speaker in Adult RE on Sunday, August 3. Come and listen to her to hear all about the school.

Ugandan UU Minister and Gay Rights Activist Rev. Mark Kiyimba will be our guest minister on August 17

Ugandan Jewelry Fundraiser

Every Sunday morning in August we will be selling jewelry from Project Have Hope. The jewelry is eco-friendly and is made from recycled paper, glass and African coins by women in Uganda. Funds raised will be donated back to Project Have Hope to send a Ugandan child to school.
