Welcome to the Fellowship
We are a liberal religious congregation and a dynamic, caring community. We value the inherent worth and dignity of each person, regardless of who you are or whom you love, your family or personal circumstances, or the path your faith calls you to walk.
Unitarian Universalism is an open-minded religion that encourages people to seek their own spiritual path. At UUFR, you can nurture your spirit and put your faith into action to create a just and compassionate world.
We're glad you're here!
