The Covenant of Mount Vernon Unitarian Church

This is the covenant we recite each Sunday as part of our worship service.

The Covenant can be found on the back page of our hymnals and in our hearts.

Love is the teaching of this church.
The quest of truth is its daily task,
And service is its prayer.
To dwell together in peace,
To seek knowledge in freedom,
To serve life in community,
To the end that all souls shall grow in harmony.
This is our covenant, with each and with all.
