Our History

UUA+Flaming+Chalice+Color

In 2024, we will be celebrating our 300th anniversary.  That’s a LOT of history.  From this page, you can follow links to various writings about that history.  If you’re a newcomer, you’ll find out a lot more about us simply by visiting us.  Various pages on this site tell you about our beliefs and purpose. But if you want to know about our 300 years, this is for you.

Rev. J. Mark Worth served as our interim minister from August 2013 through July 2015 while we conducted a search for a new settled minister.

(Mark had previously been a high school history teacher which shows in his writings.  This is a mix of theological, societal, and congregational changes.)
