Over the centuries, our Protestant forebears, especially the Calvinists and Pietists from whom we descend, gradually eliminated most of the liturgy and ritual from services, and Unitarian and Universalists in the mid-20th century turned Sunday services into lectures. Worship has gradually returned to a more spiritual experience over the last 50 years. Lisa deGruyter will share some thoughts on that.

Our services are Sundays at 11 a.m. at the Progressive Women’s Association Uptown Event Center, 305 Washington Ave. in downtown Clarksburg, behind the Courthouse. There are classes for children and adults 10 to 10:45 am, and a coffee gathering before the service. More about us.

We would love to have you come worship with us.

Children are welcome. There is childcare and an activity for young children during the service.

The building is wheelchair accessible, with an accessible restroom. You may park on the south side of the building, which is marked reserved for the PWA.


The schedule for the current adult religious education class is here.
