The Seven Eight Principles
  1. The inherent worth and dignity of every person;

  2. Justice, equity and compassion in human relations;

  3. Acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth in our congregations;

  4. A free and responsible search for truth and meaning;

  5. The right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in society at large;

  6. The goal of world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all;

  7. Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part

  8. And our Eighth Principle... We affirm and promote the following 8th Principle:

    Journeying toward spiritual wholeness by building a diverse, multicultural Beloved Community that by our actions accountably dismantle racism and other oppressions in ourselves and our institutions.

Fun and Fundraising

The annual service fundraiser is one of our longest-standing most-loved events. Members and friends donate services and events - like themed dinner parties, custom sewing and knitting projects, babysitting services, and more - for attendees to bid on. Not only does this fundraiser itself bring everyone together for a night of fun, but the events that get hosted throughout the year are a wonderful social outlet for the community. And of course, all proceeds benefit our congregation.

Although the event has officially ended there are still a number of items that are still available to bid upon.
