Introduction to Community Church Unitarian Universalist
Community Church is an active and friendly Unitarian Universalist congregation in New Orleans, Louisiana. Like all of the best UU churches, we are made up of people who take both a rational and active approach to our faith. We are a congregation of people who seek the truth, strive for a better world and commit ourselves to living thoughtfully.
Unitarian Universalism is a liberal religion with Jewish and Christian roots. It has no creed. It affirms the worth of human beings, advocates freedom of belief, the search for advancing truth, and tries to provide an open, supportive community for people who believe that ethical living is the supreme witness of religion. Membership is open to anyone who is attracted to this philosophical approach.
You are invited to join us Sunday at 11:00 am. for our Sunday Services . Maps and directions to CCUU are shown in the sidebar. In addition to a stimulating sermon, or occasionally a special program, you will find
- a religious education program for children;
- child care for tiny ones;
- for those who like to sing, a choir which welcomes new voices; and
- after service coffee and conversation to give us an opportunity to know each other.
Our church features frequent social events, lively discussion groups, and a warm congregation strongly bonded to one another and welcoming to newcomers.
We also welcome you to attend any of our social events and discussion groups. Details about these and more are posted in our newsletter, copies of which are available on this website.

Religious Education at CCUU
This brief note summarizes our religious education program for children. We hope that people of all ages find here a loving, supportive community in which all can grow, learn, and serve the larger world. UU religious education curricula are designed to teach children the UU principles and how to live them, to increase their understanding of the world around them, and to provide a loving, cooperative, and thoroughly enjoyable group experience.
Except for those in child care, the children attend the first part of the worship service with their parents. After the first hymn, we “sing them out” to their classes. We have a teacher and a helper with each group of children each Sunday in two classrooms in our Annex (the little house next door which is occupied by the Lakeview Shepherd Center during the week). At present, we offer two classes: children in preschool through 1st grade are “Exploring Home”, while the 5th and 6th graders consider ethical dilemmas with a curriculum entitled “Amazing Grace”. We will add a class for 2nd through 4th graders when we welcome children in that age group. We also provide child care for the youngest.
