Covenant Love is the spirit of this church,
and reason is its guide.
To dwell together in peace,
to seek truth in freedom,
and to serve human need:
this is our covenant.

Sung Response May love shine forth through us today
May light of reason guide our way
May beauty, truth, and joy become
A flame that burns in everyone.
