Please join us for Sunday morning worship from 10:30 to 11:30, then get to know us after the service when we enjoy fair-trade coffee and light snacks. Dress is casual - jeans are fine!
Children are welcome and join us for the beginning part of all services. We do hold multi-generational services will include children for the entire service. We provide childcare for infants and toddlers and offer spiritual education classes for for kids 5 and up.
At CUUB, we encourage people to live the questions. We don't claim to have all the answers, and we don't tell you what to believe. We are a community of people from different backgrounds who come together to support each other and search for truth and meaning together. CUUB offers a place of comfort for people whose spirituality doesn't always fit within the confines of traditional religion, or within any religion.
Our part-time minister, as well as guest speakers, ministers from other congregations, and our own members provide sermons on Sundays. Sermon topics are varied, from environmental, social justice, spiritual, historical, and philosophical topics. We like to say, "Come back next week for something completely different!"
If you would like to learn more about Unitarian Universalism, please feel free to contact us. You may enjoy watching the UUA video, "Voices of a Liberal Faith." In this video, members and ministers share their thoughts on worship and fellowship, explain the goals of religious education, explore the historic roots of our religion, and celebrate the spirit of social justice that inspires our faith.

Upcoming Sunday Services
"Listening to the Sound :of Silence."
Sunday, February 17th, 2019
Dr. Michelle Byrd
What do you hear when there is nothing demanding to be heard? Perhaps more importantly, what do you think and feel when you allow yourself to sit in the sacred space of silence? Do the sounds of silence pierce your ears like an alarm bell or soothe your spirit? In this sermon we will pause to explore the power and practice of silence and consider why finding silence is so difficult in our day-to-day lives.

Rev. Julie Brock
Most humans avoid conflict if they can help it. But isn't conflict a necessary result of having diverse perspective working toward the same end? If that is the case, then maybe conflict isn't just inevitable, maybe it is a helpful tool to let us know when we need to listen and learn from one another. Lets talk about ways we can use disagreement, conflict, and all the side effects of being in community to transform ourselves and are we are with one another.

Rev. Julie Brock
Our theme of the month is Journey. What has been your experience on earth so far? If you were to give a state of the journey address, what would it highlight? We will distill the important elements of our journey through the poetry devise, the six word story.
From Cambridge to CUUB, how we became a faith based in Covenant rather than creed.
Sunday, March 10th, 2019
Rev. Julie Brock
What do we owe one another? How do we structure ourselves to ensure that we are gathering as a free faith rather than a entity of empire? These questions were first answered in 1648 in the document known as the Cambridge Platform. It set out framework for a covenant based faith with congregation polity as its governing document, and it has been a wild ride from there! Come to church to hear all about it and discuss why covenanting is such a crucial part of Unitarian Universalism!
The Power of Storytelling
Sunday, March 17th, 2019
As human beings, one of the simplest and most effective things we can do to understand one another is to tell our stories. I will share our family's story, including raising a transgender son, and what we've learned about supporting vulnerable youth in today's world.
Rev. Rachel Hayes
