Why we do what we do

the cottage in the woods

We gather at our Environmental Cottage on Grand Island, New York. The Cottage sits on several undeveloped acres. -- photo by Jon Rieley-Goddard

Our faith is rooted in the ancient struggle for social justice and Jesus’ law of love in social relationships. We believe in the integrity of creation, justice and peace; in the dignity and value of labor; in working in interfaith networks and coalitions. We are an Open and Affirming congregation.

We work for sustainable development. We give thanks for heaven and earth, the diversity of species, the song of hope, the beauty of being, the dynamic of love.

Our church cottage, walking trail, and outdoor labyrinth are available for all groups and individuals seeking a place for recreation, study, and meditation and who share our beliefs in the dignity of and respect for all beings, social justice, economic equality, world peace, the dignity and worth of every individual, world brotherhood/sisterhood and understanding.
