April 30 10:30- 11:30AM - Rev Paul Britner will present "With Purpose and Power." Though often misunderstand as a faith tradition with no content in which one can believe whatever one wants to believe, Unitarian Universalists have a rich spiritual heritage that evolved from our Puritan ancestors. This message draws upon that history to suggest a few things that might be at the spiritual core of our faith.
5th Sunday Town Hall Meeting following the service.
We are a lay-led religious community offering a unique spiritual and moral witness in the Shenandoah Valley.
We meet each Sunday in the historic Dale Enterprise School House. We remind ourselves that the three key tasks of this religious community are:
- sense-making, helping each other to find the truths in our lives and in the world;
- care-giving, helping each other through the hard times and celebrating the good times;
- justice-seeking, trying to leave this community and the world a better place for us having been here.
We invite all who search for truth and meaning with open hearts and open minds to join us in worship, in mutual support, and in shared ministry to each other and to the world.
Whatever the faiths you have known, or the flags of your heritage — You are welcome here. Whoever you are, and whomever you love — You are welcome here. And
— whether you ran in here today on little feet, Or walked in briskly, Or ambled in, Or rolled in, You are welcome here.
HUU serves Harrisonburg and the surrounding communities in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia.
- Are you looking for a religious community in which to seek spiritual growth?
- Are you eager to consider religious questions with others who are not always
certain they have all the answers, but who are determined to keep searching
- Would you like the fellowship of others for worship, discussion and education,
friendship and mutual support?
- Are you seeking a church where the freedom of the pulpit and the freedom
of the pew are equally respected? Do you desire an opportunity for women and
men, regardless of race, color, religion of origin, sexual orientation or political
affiliations, to come together and be more concerned with the love of people
than the love of things?
- Do you want children to be helped to develop their spiritual curiosity,
compassion and critical thinking.
- Do you wish to preserve and extend the traditions of democracy, freedom of conscience and human dignity?
You should get to know us! Stop by the Old Dale Enterprise Schoolhouse (pictured on the right) any Sunday morning. Our service begins promptly at 10:30AM and lasts about an hour. On Sunday mornings we hear from the congregation, visiting ministers in a monthly rotation, and other invited guests. The diverse gifts or our members and friends make each week a different experience.
