You are welcome here.
Founded in 1889, Channing Church has welcomed people of all beliefs and backgrounds through our doors for more than 130 years. We hold services at 10 am on Sundays, followed immediately by Coffee Hour. We also host a rich children’s religious education program, a fun and focused youth program throughout the congregational year, and fundraisers to directly benefit our Rockland community.
As a Unitarian Universalist congregation, Channing Church bases our teachings on many religious traditions, including Humanist, Theist, Atheist, Pantheist, Christian, Jewish, Hindu, Pagan, Mystic, and Transcendentalist perspectives on theology. Guided by our Unitarian heritage of freedom, reason, and tolerance, we support one another’s religious questioning/questing. Everyone is welcome regardless of race, creed, color, sexual orientation, or gender identity.
Channing Church Affirmation
Love is the doctrine of this church
The quest for truth is its sacrament
And service is its prayer.
To dwell together in peace;
To seek knowledge in Freedom;
To serve humanity in fellowship;
To the end that all souls shall grow
Into harmony with the divine.
Thus do we covenant with each other
And with God.
