Starr King Unitarian Universalist Fellowship had its beginning on a snowy afternoon in 1980 when eighteen adults gathered in response to a newspaper ad.
Two months later the Fellowship was admitted to membership in the Unitarian Universalist Association, with twenty-four charter members. At first meetings were held in various member homes and later at the Easter Seal Society (now the Plymouth Police Station), the Masonic Hall (now apartments), and the Yankee Fitness Center on Fairgrounds Road.
Finally, in 1995, we built our own home on Fairgrounds Road where we still are today.
What We Believe
In Unitarian Universalism, you can bring your whole self: your full identity, your questioning mind, your expansive heart.
Together, we create a force more powerful than one person or one belief system. As Unitarian Universalists, we do not have to check our personal background and beliefs at the door: we join together on a journey that honors everywhere we’ve been before.
Our beliefs are diverse and inclusive. We have no shared creed. Our shared covenant (our seven Principles) supports “the free and responsible search for truth and meaning.” Though Unitarianism and Universalism were both liberal Christian traditions, this responsible search has led us to embrace diverse teachings from Eastern and Western religions and philosophies.
The Seven 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 congregation;
A free and responsible search for truth and meaning;
The right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregation and in 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.
