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.

Like many UU congregations, UUCUC is a Welcoming Congregation. We work for justice through our Social Action program and through supporting local organizations dedicated to addressing injustices in our community. 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 each other reconnect — to help find meaning in our lives.

We invite you to join our church community.  Our Membership Enrollment Kit guides you through the process.

We hold Pathway to Membership classes on a quarterly basis throughout the year. For more information, call our Membership Coordinator, Sherry Bohlen, at (217) 384-8862 or email her at Membership@uucuc.org.  

We also invite you to connect with us through one of our Groups or Committees
