Religious Education Events

Join us for the Small Woods trail hike, followed by watermelon-in-a-baggie event! Saturday, Aug. 8, 10 a.m. Meet behind the Hildreth Elementary School in the parking lot by the dumpsters. Even though the road suggests it's closed, it is passable to the back of the school.

Come for an easy-going, close to down-town, 15-20 minute Harvard hike. Bring your family, friends, and face-mask! We will provide the watermelon-baggies. See what Mr. Small had in mind when he designed this hike through white pines, beech, and oak trees. Find the “will you marry me” tree and other delights!

See you on the trail…soon.

Guest at Your Table

With our lives currently being held hostage by the corona virus, our GAYT effort will take a breather and start up again in the fall. In the meantime if you are able to send in a check to support the UUSC’s efforts around the globe it will be greatly appreciated. All donations will still be matched and donations of $125 or more will be quadrupled.

Who we are

We are a liberal religious community of people of all ages who hold diverse theological beliefs. We come not only from Harvard, but also from many surrounding towns. We gather together "in the spirit of love," to worship, to learn, and to care for one another. We come together both to be comforted and accepted for who we are, and to be challenged to transform and grow as moral and spiritual persons.

We believe in the value of personal experience and reason, and use both as we explore the wisdom of the world's religious traditions, seeking to find and make meaning for ourselves. We celebrate and honor the prophetic words and deeds of many of those who've come before us, which call us to serve not only one another, but also those outside of our community. We long for a world that is fair and just and filled with compassion, and we work to make it so.

We welcome you! We'd love to have you join us on our journey!
