Statement of Support for Rutland Welcoming Syrian and Iraqi Refugees

"Because our Unitarian Universalist principles call us to affirm the inherent worth and dignity of every person, act with justice and compassion, and build world community; and because we recognize that communities are enriched by embracing cultural and religious diversity, RESOLVED that we, the Unitarian Universalist Church of Rutland, stand in support of Rutland welcoming Syrian and Iraqi refugees to the community and support efforts to ease the transition for the refugees resettling here."

Our Mission Statement

The Unitarian Universalist Church of Rutland exists to provide a joyful and mutually supportive community of all ages, while fostering spiritual growth and the search for personal truth for the free and creative expression of thought, feeling and ideas; and to make a difference here in our own fellowship and in the wider community by working for a more tolerant, respectful and compassionate world.

Child Care and Sunday School at 10:30

We believe Religious Education provides the opportunity for children of all ages to develop spiritual and moral identities.
