Welcome to the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Columbia

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 full-time minister is Neal Jones. Neal 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

Annual Picnic

Join us for a covered dish picnic Saturday may 17. Young and old are to gather for a day of fun, food, games, and fellowship. We  ask that everyone bring their favorite dish, lawn chairs, pop-up tents, musical instruments and fishing poles. Tea and Lemonade will be provided. This picnic will celebrate the successful pledging of our 2015-2016 budget. Rain date is Saturday, May 30. Contact Dot Brown with questions.

Volunteers Needed for Winter RE Children’s Classes!

If we do not have an assistant for an RE class, that class will have to be canceled and the children sent back into the service.  It is necessary for each family to designate one Sunday per month in the RE wing. If you have not filled out a volunteer application, please pick one up outside the DRE’s office. Nancie will need to do a background check and when cleared, she will place you into much needed time slots. We need assistants for classes, playground supervisors, and snack coordinators. Please  contact DRE Nancie Shillington-Perez at dre@uucolumbia.org.
