Welcome to Community Church Unitarian Universalist
Sunday services and children’s religious education are held at 11:00 a.m.
We believe that we are all family and we all have value.
The purpose of Community Church is to form a community to practice and advance a free and responsible search for truth and meaning, the inherent worth and dignity of every person and a commitment to ethical living.
We invite you to visit us on Sunday mornings to explore our spirituality together. All are welcome.

Second Sunday Collection – October 8
Our charitable plate collection will benefit the UUA’s United Nations Office (UU-UNO) – our voice at the United Nations. The UU-UNO is engaged in international advocacy work at the U.N. based on Unitarian Universalist values. From involvement in the drafting of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, to leading the faith caucus to establish the International Criminal Court, to overcoming UN apathy about sexual orientation & gender identity issues, the UU-UNO has a long history of providing strong leadership in all aspects of human rights at a policy level through UN consultative status.
CCUU earned Blue Ribbon status for the second year in a row from the UU-UNO and our envoy Cynthia Ramirez was presented with a plaque at General Assembly. Cynthia will speak to us about the work of the UU-UNO.
