We strive to be a beacon of liberal religion in our four counties: Wayne, Medina, Holmes, and Ashland.

We are a caring, open-minded spiritual community where people are accepted for who they are, rather than who others believe they should be. We offer a place where people gather to nurture their spirits and put their faith into action by helping to make our communities–and the world–a better place.

lgbt1We believe that our first Principle, respecting “the inherent worth and dignity of every person,” applies equally to people of all sexual orientations and gender identities. As a Welcoming Congregation, we have completed a program to enhance our welcome of all people, including individuals who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender.

In the 1970s, Unitarian Universalism was the first mainline denomination to ordain openly lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people. Our LGBTQ clergy and their spouses or partners participate fully in our faith community in some of our largest congregations.
