We’re Excited You are Here!


Our faith, Unitarian Universalism, is a spiritually alive and justice-centered religion. Unitarian Universalists search for truth along many paths.

Frequently Asked Questions

Who is welcome? 
We welcome people of all ages, races, political beliefs, national origins, religious beliefs, differing abilities, sexual orientations, and gender identity, as well as those with differing abilities or disabilities.

What do we believe?
Rather than basing our religion on specific beliefs, we gather around shared moral values that include the inherent worth and dignity of every person. We believe that our similarities are much more significant than our differences.

What are services like?
If you visit us and attend Sunday worship service, it will likely feel familiar to you. Services are led by our Interim Minister, Rev. Michelle LaGrave. She usually gives the sermon along with various readings and seasonal observances. The service is accompanied by religious music ranging from organ to rock music, from hymns to choral songs.

What time is Sunday service?
Sunday worship service begins at 11 AM and lasts about an hour. Break hour follows the Sunday service. Adult Religious Education meets at 10 AM Sunday mornings.

How should I dress for Sunday service?
People are usually dressed in business casual attire and some wear jeans and sneakers, so come in what you feel most comfortable.

Where do I park? (Only virtual services offered at the moment.)
We have plenty of parking in our own lot, with clearly marked handicapped and carpool spaces.

Are you handicapped accessible?
Emerson is wheelchair accessible and we have a few short pews with space for wheelchairs. Large-print hymnals and head phones for the hearing impaired/hard of hearing are available.  Please ask an usher or greeter to show you where these items are kept.

What types of programs and activities are available?
Emerson offers an expansive religious education program for adults, youth and children.  We have study groups, volunteer opportunities in the community as well as on campus, covenant groups and much, much more.
