WHO WE ARE
We are a small congregation of women and men who came together to create a new Unitarian Universalist Church in the Rock Valley region of north central Illinois in 2001. With a common ground to search for meaning and a commitment to our spiritual journey, our membership includes people of diverse thought and action. This path strengthens our resolve to seek answers to difficult questions and teaches us how to work together while honoring the worth and dignity of every member. In every gathering we are exposed to new ideas and religious diversity from a variety of authors, teachers, and prophets.
"Our vision is about the communal aspect of spirituality. By coming together in a community in order to express and feel that which is spiritual in our lives, we recognize the desire to share spirituality as a group as well as individuals on their own separate spiritual paths.
Our spirituality includes our essence, that unnamable 'something' that makes us who we are. People join a religious community in order to connect with their spiritual essence and then reach out to others, linking to the spiritual essence within other human beings and sharing that essence to create a better world."
