Our mission is to be a spiritual community, to welcome all,
to nurture one another, to work for justice,
and to care for the earth.

Who We Are

We are a loving, supportive community who encourage the exploration of individual and shared spiritual beliefs. We strive to live the Seven Unitarian Universalist Principles, which hold us together as a faith.

And we welcome all people, regardless of religious background, race, gender, sexual orientation or political leaning.

Peace be with you.

Our Vision: Ending Inequality

In January 2015, UUCB members elected a vision for our church, aligned with the UUA’s Congregational Study/Action Issue “Escalating Inequality.” A task force of UUCB members has been studying, planning, and collecting congregational advice to lay the groundwork for action that will advance our vision.”

December 7 Blue Christmas Vespers 7pm
Many people enter the holiday season with dread, especially if they are feeling bereaved, estranged from loved ones, or despairing about life circumstances. In addition, this year, the election has left many feeling shattered and afraid. Our Blue Christmas vespers will offer a time of readings, music, quiet, and sharing in a safe circle to offer solace to all.

December 11 “Seeds of Hope” - Annual Mitten Service Rev. Sylvia Stocker This is also New Member Sunday, at which we celebrate the most recent people who have signed our membership book. To participate in the Mitten Service, please bring new (not used) mittens, hats, or scarves to church. During the service, we will decorate the trees with them. After the service, we will take them to local charities where they will be distributed to needy people. Music by Derek Herzer and the choir under the direction of Heidi Neufeld.

December 18 Intergenerational Christmas Service
Rev. Stocker, Nicole Shanks, and Claire Curole collaborate with our fabulous Intergenerational Orchestra, conducted by Ross Miller, to produce a joyful service. Derek Herzer will accompany the hymns.

Saturday, December 24, Christmas Eve Candle Lighting Service
7 pm - All ages welcome. Come for beautiful choir music, carols,

reflections, and candle lighting. Our sanctuary is particularly beautiful when the only light is coming from our candles when we sing “Silent Night.” And our hopes for the future are most evident when we light our baby candles. Music by Derek Herzer and the choir under the direction of Heidi Neufeld.

December 25 NO SERVICE
Time to have a cup of tea and curl up with the cats (as Sylvia will be doing) or to engage in festivities with family, friends, or neighbors.

January 1 “Keeping the Wind in Our Sails” Dave Damour
As we celebrate the New Year, we look to the coming journey. In an informal service of readings and singing, let us be thankful for what we have and look forward to the challenges ahead. UUCB's mission "to be a spiritual community, to welcome all, to nurture one another, to work for justice, and to care for the earth" gives us focus. And we have a wonderful, spirited group of people who have much to offer. Let us determine to move forward in these challenging times.
