Connecting in spiritual community,
we celebrate life with joy
grow in compassion
Welcome to the Unitarian Universalist Society of Schenectady
We are a liberal religious community, welcoming people of all ages, races, ethnicities, sexual orientations, gender identities and physical abilities to our inclusive congregation. Our members have many different spiritual beliefs; we are bound, not by a common creed, but by our shared commitment to a religion that celebrates freedom, tolerance and reason. We welcome newcomers to join with us as we worship, sing, play, teach, study, and work for social justice together.

Love and Democracy
Rev. Margret A. O’Neall
Music: Peg Delaney, jazz piano
and Bill Delaney
Our fifth principle upholds the value of democratic process in our churches. Decisionmaking in a community is simple if everyone thinks the same way, likes the same things. But what about when there are differences, strongly held opinions, divergent priorities? As we begin to prepare for the ministerial search process, this church will explore lessons of love in community.
Religious Education: This Sunday at 10:30am, children and youth will attend their religious education classes in Waters House and the RE Hallway. There will be a Children's Chapel for the 1st-5th graders in Waters House from 10:30am-10:45am. The 8th-9th grade Coming of Age class will start at 10am. Children of all ages are always welcome in the worship service.
Religious Education programming for children and youth for the 2015-2016 year began in September. All families must submit a current registration form.
