Transforming Our Ideals

 

Love is our Doctrine and Service is our Prayer
Our Unitarian Universalist Principles call us to affirm and promote:

  • The inherent worth and dignity of every person
  • The goal of world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all;
  • Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part.

We are a Welcoming Congregation and supported the campaign to establish full marriage equality Vermont.

As part of our offering, we collect non-perishables for the Food Shelf at the Springfield Family Center each week.   Once a month, our Share the Plate offering donates funds to organizations and causes.   In 2011-2012, we made donations to: Vermont Farm Relief Fund, Saturday Lunches, Springfield Clergy Emergency Fund, ShareHeat, Guest at Your Table, Springfield Area Parent Child Center, Rural Vermont, New Beginnings, and Vermont Interfaith Power and Light.

As part of the Association of Springfield Area Churches, we take a turn at serving a Saturday  lunch at the Springfield Family Center.

We have hosted North Springfield Action Group (NoSAG) meetings to protest the building of a major Bio-mass plant in our town.

In November, 2011, we initiated Occupy Springfield protests as we joined with the 99% to make our voices heard on income inequality.
