Our members are diverse in their personal religious perspectives. Some members are lifelong Unitarian Universalists; most have come from other religious traditions; many have never before been part of a faith community.
Unitarian Universalist Community of Charlotte is a place where:
- You are encouraged to discover your own spiritual path
- Everyone is welcomed, heard, included and respected
- We embrace and celebrate diversity
- We care for and support each other in times of joy and in sorrow
- People live out their faith through intersectional justice activities
- Children learn about the world’s religions
- We revere the interdependent web of life and care for our planet
If these principles and practices appeal to you, we invite you to come and experience our liberating faith.
We offer several ways for visitors to get acquainted with our members and staff and to ask questions about our community.
Visit us on a Sunday Morning
One of the best ways to get to know us is to visit on a Sunday morning. When you arrive, please look for the visitor table in our vestibule. Greeters will welcome you, invite you to get a name tag and help you find where to go. Find more about Sunday mornings here. If you are visiting with kids, find more about what we offer for children here.
Connect After the Service
Each Sunday, visitors and members are invited to gather in Freeman Hall, across the vestibule from the sanctuary, to enjoy coffee or tea and learn more about our community activities. Most activities throughout the year are open to members and non-members alike.
Sign up for Currents
Our weekly newsletter Currents is the best way to know what’s happening at the Unitarian Universalist Community of Charlotte (UUCC). Here, you will find upcoming classes, activities, volunteer opportunities, and more. Sign up here.
Ask Us Questions
We offer small-group “Getting to Know Us” sessions after service on the first Sunday of the month after both services. This is an informal, drop-by setting, where you can meet a member of our community, get information about this community, and ask questions.
Get More Connected
Meet with Director of Member Relations Kelly Greene (in person or on Zoom) to find out how you can get more involved at the UUCC. She can help connect you with small groups, classes, volunteering, etc., and answer your questions. If you are ready to become a member of the UUCC, she can help you with that too. Contact her at kelly(at)uuccharlotte.org or 704-366-8623.
Meet our Minister
We invite visitors and new members to chat with our minister after service on the third Sunday of each month. Grab some coffee or tea in Freeman Hall and go downstairs to the Bernstein Room off the main lobby for this brief and informal discussion. These sessions typically begin about 15 minutes after the service ends.
Take a Class
Our “Discovering the UUCC” class is offered quarterly and facilitated by our Director of Member Relations, Kelly Greene, and our Minister. This informative session covers our philosophy, history, programs, and organization. Along with 10 to 20 other participants, you’ll learn about our diverse religious heritage and what common beliefs Unitarian Universalists share. You’ll meet some of our community leaders, and you’ll hear about our Children and Youth Religious Education program. Breakfast and childcare are provided. The date and time of each of these sessions is publicized in the Sunday handout, at the visitor table in Freeman Hall, and in Currents, our weekly newsletter.
