A Spiritual Home for You and Your Family
Welcome to the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of the South Jersey Shore!
Our liberal religion comes out of the Judeo-Christian tradition, but we draw from many teachers, sages and prophets throughout the ages. Ours is a non-creedal religion. We think that reason, personal experience and conscience should be the final authorities in religion. We firmly believe that people should be encouraged to think for themselves, and that their differences in lifestyles and opinions should be honored by all. We want our children to learn about the great questions of life, but encourage them to find their own answers.
On Sunday mornings from 10:00 to 11:00, we gather for services and for religious education classes. We meet in a beautiful new building near the north entrance to Richard Stockton College, at the corner of Pomona Road and Liebig Street, Galloway Township, Atlantic County.

When you arrive, you will be welcomed by greeters. We wear nametags to make it easier for newcomers, and you will be given one too. At services you will find about 70 or so adults, and around 20 children. Dress is casual. After services most people stay for "coffee hour" -- fellowship and light snacks.
Our services are led by Rev. Cynthia Cain about half the time, and the remainder by lay leaders and guest speakers.
There is much variety in the content and style of our services.
One thing members often say is, "Services are always interesting."
