Upcoming Services

Apocalyptic Hope

Rev. Julie Brock

Sunday, August 16th 10:30am

What happens when we run out of hope?  Where does it come from?  Is there an endless supply and can we do anything to foster hope?  Recent decades have become increasingly preoccupied with apologetic fiction in our collective imagination.  What happens when this all falls apart?  Sometimes it feels like we are living in apocalyptic times now.  Who will bring us hope, when hope is hard to find?  See you Sunday!

Fred Hampton, Freedom Fighter

Rev. Julie Brock

Sunday, August 30th 10:30am

Fred Hampton accomplished much in the short 21 years he was on earth.  Freedom fighter, revolutionary, community activist, and dear friend, Fred Hampton was shot by Chicago police at point blank range after being identified as a threat by the FBI.  Why do we find revolutionary voices threatening?  How can we better respond to voices calling out from communities who need revolutionary change?  Let's think on it.  See you Sunday!

What happens when relationships break?

Rev. Julie Brock

Sunday, September 6th 10:30am

Broken relationships are one the most difficult things humans have to deal with.  It feels like we should have some amount of control over weather or not people we love are in or out of our lives.  Sometimes something disruptive happens and you can't see eye to eye. Sometimes mending is possible.  What are the best conditions under which people in strife can come together and heal.  Let's discuss.  See you Sunday!

Liberal Values

Welcome to Community Unitarian Universalists in Brighton (CUUB). With a deep commitment to honoring the inherent worth and dignity of every person, we come together as a congregation of open minds, loving hearts, and helping hands. We are unified by our shared search for spiritual growth, and our historically strong commitment to social justice. Whatever your age, race, or sexual orientation, you are welcome here. We invite you to join us in our free and responsible search for truth and meaning.  

Inspiration from Everywhere and Anywhere

We recognize the diversity of our spiritual paths and beliefs, and offer a welcoming home for modern individuals and families who may struggle with singular dogma. We are united by shared values, not by creed.  We affirm and honor each individual's spiritual exploration.  




What do UUs Believe?

We're glad you asked! We affirm and promote seven principles which we hold as strong values.  Drawn from sources as diverse as science, poetry, nature, scripture, and personal experience, these principles are our shared moral compass.

1st Principle: The inherent worth and dignity of every person;

2nd Principle: Justice, equity and compassion in human relations;

3rd Principle: Acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth in our congregations;

4th Principle: A free and responsible search for truth and meaning;

5th Principle: The right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in society at large;

6th Principle: The goal of world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all;

7th Principle: Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part.​

Deeds, Not Creeds

Our legacy of "deeds not creeds" calls us to harness love's power to stop oppression and make the world a better place.  Whether that means spreading kindness in our daily lives, planting a garden with our children, grassroots community organizing, or interfaith advocacy, marches, and prayer vigils, Unitarian Universalists strive to put our faith into action.
