Welcome to the Unitarian Universalist Society of Amherst. We invite you to explore our principles and mission, read some sermons, browse our latest news and come to a Sunday service (10 AM with a social hour after the service).
Hello, and welcome to the website of the Unitarian Universalist Society of Amherst, MA. If you are searching for a UU congregation you will find much at this site that will tell you about our congregation, our worship services, our activities and our various forms of outreach. I am the minister, and of course biased, but this is a wonderfully warm and welcoming congregation. We hope you’ll think so, too, when you visit us.
Unitarian Universalism is a very special “way of doing” religion. We have no creed or any required statements of membership or participation. We hold that each of us is on a continuing spiritual journey, throughout our entire lives, and that joining with others in religious community is a powerful way to feed our souls and expand our vision.
UUs find truth and wisdom in many sources, including the classical religious texts, but our services often contain readings from literature and especially poetry. We feel that reason, balanced with human emotion, combined with the knowledge inherent in our own experiences, are the primary sources for our religious understanding.
At the Unitarian Universalist Society of Amherst (abbreviated UUSA) we balance our activities between worship on Sunday mornings, other forms of adult enrichment, the fun of plain fellowship, and the work of keeping our Society up and running. We are also dedicated to the religious education of our children and youth. UUSA is an official Welcoming Congregation as well as a Green Sanctuary Congregation.
Please be in touch if you have any questions. Sincerely, The Rev. Alison Wohler
