  • Our Church

    Our church is part of the national Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA.org), and provides a non-creedal, liberal religious experience to all who support our principles, which are printed in the front of our hymnals. Our roots lie deep in the history of Northwest Indiana. Our sanctuary, now listed on the National Register of Historic Places, was built in 1874 and has been occupied by our congregation ever since. We housed the first lending library in Hobart, which is currently housed in our lower level discussion room. We continue to be active in humanitarian efforts in the region. Our congregation is extremely diverse. We gather from all over Northwest Indiana, and draw from many different spiritual sources. We form a community that cherishes religious pluralism, promotes the inherent dignity of every person, and provides mutual support as we seek our personal spiritual and intellectual growth. A combination of four characteristics makes us unique: we are liberal and open, our children are involved in all aspects of our community, our mission is valued over our institution, and our culture is one of encouragement. Please feel free to ask us about our denomination, our church, and our beliefs.
  • Vision

    To be the heart of Unitarian Universalism in Northwest Indiana.
  • Mission

    We are a liberal religious home that offers a safe and challenging place for seekers of truth and meaning to gather in worship, community and in service. We embody the UU values of justice, equity and compassion through the life we share with each other and in the service we provide to the world.
  • Seven 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.
  • Four Characteristics

    * We are liberal
    * We prioritize our mission over the institution
    * We have a culture of encouragement
    * We include and involve our youth and children
