Channing Unitarian Universalist Church
What is Unitarian Universalism?
About UsBelieving they were “endowed with the liberty to decide for themselves their attitude toward God, the Bible, and to Truth Known and to be Known” our founders began building Channing Church in 1883 and dedicated it in 1889
Today, symbols from many of the world’s religious traditions are displayed in our sanctuary. Among us you will find Humanist, Theist, Atheist, Pantheist, Christian, Jewish, Hindu, Pagan, Mystic, and Transcendentalist perspectives on theology. Steeped in our Unitarian heritage of Freedom, Reason, and Tolerance and grounded in the Universalist spirit of Love, we support one another’s religious questioning/questing as we live out our lives as bankers, carpenters, homemakers, retirees, students, and teachers. We are newborns, and great grandparents and everything in between. We hope you will join us!
“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens citizens can change the world. Indeed it is the only thing that ever has”

Channing Church AffirmationLove 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 do we covenant with each other
And with God.
