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.


Handicapped Access Sidewalk

Thank you to all who organized and donated to have an accessibility ramp installed at the pantry. It is important that everyone has access to healthy, diverse foods; and thanks to your compassion and generosity, we are one large step closer to making that happen. We appreciate you and all of the support.

Renovations to the First-Floor Bathroom and the Kitchenette

B&G is very happy to report that the renovations to the first-floor bathroom and the kitchenette in the Hale Building are finished!! Everything is functional, clean and attractive.

B&G also contracted to repair the walls of the front steps and replaced four sidewalk sections that were a tripping hazard. Not pictured, they are also repairing water damage behind the wall of the minister's office. Other improvements have been the upgrading of the sanctuary chandeliers to LEDs, improving the air filtration systems in the sanctuary and Fellowship Hall, and continuing to maintain the playground and garth.
