Every day, people and families are overwhelmed by demands and pulled by a culture that tends to separate us from one another and from nature.
Like many UU congregations, UUCUC is a Welcoming Congregation. We actively contribute to local efforts to feed the hungry, to provide shelter for the needy, and to support our immigrant population. Our shared plate offering gives more than $16,000 a year to support local, state, and nation-wide nonprofits. We offer educational programming such as the Our Whole Lives and the Building Bridges curriculum to promote values of understanding, inclusivity and social justice.
We seek to help people reconnect — to help us find meaning in our lives.
Our mission is to...
Unitarian Universalism is a caring, open-minded religion. We are united by shared values, not by creed or dogma. We have a track record of standing on the side of love, justice, and peace. We are diverse in faith, ethnicity, history and spirituality, but aligned in our desire to make a difference for the good.
We welcome you: your whole self, with all your truths and your doubts, your worries and your hopes. Join us on this extraordinary adventure.
Since 1859, we have played a pivotal role in community and even national events. In 1945, Unitarian minister Phil Schug helped Champaign native Vashti McCollum file suit in the landmark Supreme Court case McCollum v. Board of Education regarding separation of church and state in public schools.
That legacy continues today. Be a part of it.
Our congregation is served by kind, dedicated staff. Our minister provides spiritual and intellectual inspiration and our entire team helps this community thrive.
