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
CUUB Youth Service
Sunday, February 25th, 2018
Beth Havlik and CUUB Youth
Young people are growing up in a world where sexual orientation is more fluid. They are also not as confined by the gender binary. Come join CUUB youth as they put on the service about who we love and how we orient those feelings in relationship to gender. We have a lot to learn from them.

The theme of the month is balance. We will be asking ourselves, what does it mean to be a people of balance? The idea of balance is that we are giving equal weight to opposing forces, creating stability. It sounds so simple. But our world is rarely simple and sometimes thinking of things as two clear opposing forces takes some of the nuance and complication that is needed to see a situation clearly. What if you are partly right, but they have a point to. Come let us explore balance, nuance, mess, and our very complicated human selves as we worship together.
Victimhood and Agency
Sunday, March 11th, 2018
Ever since human being have decided that we owe it to one another to create and helpful and fair society, we have been engaged in a discussion of how to do that well. How do we balance victimhood vs. agency when determining societal aid? In light of the recent #metoo campaign and victims taking agency into their own hands, perhaps it is time to think about aid, not in terms of helping victims, but returning humans to the dignity that our faith believes is their birthright. Come to church and let us find balance and nuance in our complicated role as humans in a society.
Sunday, March 18th, 2018
What is the difference between reproductive right and reproductive justice? If a person has the right to choose when and how to reproduce but not the resourced to enact that right, can they say they actually have access to that right? Jenny Buyers will bring her expertise on the topic to CUUB this Sunday!

Pastor Julie Brock
We are the tradition of logic and reason. It seems like every reformation in Unitarian history has been to move spirituality to a place that makes more sense. In doing so, we may have moved away from the deep places of knowing in our body that tell us things we can't appreciate logically. There has been a recent shift to adjust for this movement. But, just as there was a movement away from anything emotional in the 20th century, the 21st century seems to be bringing Unitarian Universalism into a place where emotion is privileged above fact and reason. Is there a balance? Can we find it? Let's try. I'll see you in church.
