Hopedale Unitarian Universalist Community
Mission Statement and Covenant
adopted March 4, 1990

Our mission is to foster a supportive and intergenerational religious congregation, daily supported by community, renewed by inspiration, and expressed in celebration.

We covenant to:

  • examine and experience a spectrum of ethical, philosophical, and spiritual value systems,
  • embrace fundamental beliefs in human worth and dignity, and in continuity with the Earth and the Universe,
  • nurture a community that welcomes diversity, appreciates ambiguity, and encourages freedom to question and to challenge,
  • strive for spiritual growth that will make a difference in ourselves, our community, and the larger world,
  • work toward a consensual process and mutual respect in all human relationships,
  • extend and strengthen awareness of liberal religion, and,
  • recognize, cherish, and build on the capacities of the individuals in our religious community.

We enter into this covenant, promising to each other our mutual trust and support.
