Welcome to Eliot Chapel's Sunday service!


"On Being Radical: "A Sermon in Honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and William Greenleaf Eliot"

– Rev. Barbara H. Gadon

Recent scholarship from Washington University reveals that its founder and our namesake, William Greenleaf Eliot, was not an abolitionist, and did not appear to have a vision of racial equality for America. What are we to do with this information? How do we honor Eliot and remain true to the charge from Dr. King to create a "radical reformation" in the United States? 


Eliot Chapel will worship fully online through the month of January in response to the current coronavirus surge. Our services will be live on Zoom at 10:00 am Sundays, and a recording will appear here and on our Facebook page and YouTube channel for viewing. Members and friends will receive the “Eliot on Zoom” email with the Zoom link for the service on Sunday morning. If you're not on our mailing list, sign up here. We will assess what to do in February and early March later in the month. This is disappointing so soon after joyfully reopening our doors, but hopefully it won’t be for too long.


You may download an order of service here.



Join us after the service for coffee hour on Zoom! We share login information on our mailing list. Sign up here.


If you are a guest or newcomer, we welcome you! Email welcome@eliotchapel.org to get connected right away. You may also sign the guest book where you can choose to opt in to our communications list, find out about religious education programming for children, or talk to someone about any questions you have about Eliot Chapel or Unitarian Universalism. Thanks for joining us today!



In January, we will be sharing our Sunday collections with the Meacham Park Neighborhood Improvement Association (MPNIA). Meacham Park is a predominantly African American community in Kirkwood. Even before Meacham Park was annexed to Kirkwood, an intentionally diverse group of Meacham Park and Kirkwood residents formed to advocate for Meacham Park and Eliot Chapel has long ensured that we have one of our members at the table so that we are always ready to lend a hand. Learn more about MPNIA at meachamparknia.org.
