Order of Service 9.18.22

Reverend Nica Eaton-Guinn

Covenanting to Belong 

Unitarian Universalism is a covenantal faith, as opposed to a creedal one. This means we covenant how to be together in community, how we treat one another, how we care for each other and the wider world. Our covenants emerge from our values. Values such as love, justice, inclusion, growth, and compassion. Join us to learn more about how our values and covenants create a sense of belonging and care at Chalice.
