Welcome to the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Columbia

Wednesday and Saturday events cancelled!
Sunday Oct 11th service NOT cancelled

Dear Friends:

In light of the circumstances facing our community, 
       our committee night for Oct 7th will be canceled as well as 
       our New Member Dinner scheduled for Saturday night, Oct 10th

Our time and energy can be best placed serving, supporting, and nurturing one another as we regroup and move forward.

Rev. Jennie will lead our service on Sunday, October 11. We really hope to come together then. If you can bring potable water, please do.

Be safe and let Jennie (interim@uucolumbia.org) and/or Andrea (uucc@uucolumbia.org) know if any of our members need any support so we can be there for them.

Be safe, be well,

Marc & Patty Drews, Co-Presidents

Our Services and Activities

Please join us on Sunday mornings for services at 11 a.m. A typical service at the UUCC would include hymns, readings, choir, children's stories, communal sharing of joys and concerns, and a sermon.
 Adults interested in discussing current issues or on a wider range of other topics are invited to join our Forum at 9:30 a.m. in the library.

During most services, our children will start in the sanctuary and leave together for their Religious Education classes. Occasionally  children stay in the sanctuary during one of our multi-generational services. Child care is available for all infants and toddlers. 

Our interim minister is the Rev. Jennie Barrington. Rev. Barrington preaches and lives a practical, humanistic spirituality that seeks personal wholeness, relational respect, social justice, and ecological responsibility. We occasionally have guest speakers when our minister is away. We sometimes have guest musicians. We encourage you to attend several services to see all that we have to offer. We offer visitor orientation after the service on the third Sunday of every other month. More information is available in the order of service, our Unigram newsletter, and throughout this website.

Besides our Sunday services, we offer a wide variety of 
groups and activities. A few of them are; a humanist group, a coffeehouse that features nationally touring musicians, an outdoor group, a Sunday choir, a women's choir, a children's choir, and September Set. This congregation has taken part in the UUA Welcoming Congregation Program to become more inclusive towards bisexual, gay, lesbian, and/or transgender people.

Best Church:
Unitarian Universalist Fellowship

"A church where skepticism is welcome and adherence to dogma is suspect? A church where all religions are invited but none are beyond introspection? A church that regularly presents nationally touring singer-songwriters? A church where half the congregation might have been at Hunter-Gatherer the night before? Now that’s a church we can support." — Dan Cook, Free Times
