Religion Without Dogma
We offer a church where there is freedom to develop your own religious philosophy & find fellowship in a caring and thoughtful religious community.

Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Jefferson's belief in freedom of thought and freedom of belief are manifest in the many Unitarian principles our founding fathers included in the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. Ralph Waldo Emerson and Henry David Thoreau were important Unitarian philosophers and ministers.

As a member church of the UUA, the Unitarian Church of Barneveld ascribes to the Unitarian Universalist Principles:
   The inherent worth and dignity of every person.
  Justice, equity and compassion in human relations..
  Acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth in our congregations.
  A free and reasonable search for truth and meaning.
  The right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and society at large.
  The goal of world community with peace, liberty and justice for all
  Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part.
   We are a Welcoming Congregation

Summer Schedule

Sunday Services at 10:00 am


Sunday, August 19, 2018 - 10:00 am
Rev. Lynne Ashley, Minister Emerita of the Unitarian Church of Barneveld
"Something You Don't Know." “I know something you don’t know.”  This singsong taunt that may haunt us from the playgrounds of our childhoods may remind us of the power associated with knowing secrets. It may also remind us that there could be a price associated with knowing those secrets. The lessons associated with price and power, connected with some of the most powerful secrets of our families and associations (some of them carried throughout the generations), and the sense of being ‘in’ or ‘out’ (depending), are likely to influence the course of our lives.
