Welcome to UUCOB!

We invite you to join us in the celebration of life and the search for its meaning.CONCORD DIGITAL CAMERA

Our members form a diverse group with various religious backgrounds.

We, the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of the Outer Banks, extend a warm welcome to you.

  • Have you felt a need for a spiritual community that values your whole life, welcoming you as you are and recognizing that every life has extraordinary possibilities?
  • Have you ever wished for a religious community that finds inspiration in all the world’s religious traditions, in nature’s beauty, in poetry, stories, music, and art, and in the discoveries of science?
  • Have you wondered if faith and love could guide spiritual and religious people to work for equity and justice, for peace and freedom, for equal rights for all people in this world, in this lifetime?
  • Have you wanted to be part of a community of love who celebrate each other’s joys, who comfort and support each other in times of trouble, who strengthen and encourage each other for the work of making a better world, and who welcome and celebrate each other’s quest for truth and meaning?

For over 30 years the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of the Outer Banks has been building just such a spiritual community.  We would love to share it with you.  We hope you’ll enjoy exploring this website and our Facebook page, but most of all we would be glad to welcome you to a Sunday service at our Meetinghouse on Kitty Hawk Road.  Come as you are!


Weekly Announcements from June 23

Sunday Service – June 25, 2017, 10:30 a.m.
Pride
Several members of UUCOB join together in this service reflecting on the experience of LGBTQ life on the Outer Banks.

Come Celebrate Pride at the UUCOB. For decades, Unitarian Universalists have actively supported full equality for people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and/or queer (LGBTQ), and have affirmed and celebrated LGBTQ members of our congregations and communities. One powerful way to stand on the side of love with LGBTQ people is to join Unitarian Universalists everywhere in celebrating Pride.

Join General Assembly Online!
Always a remarkable chance to see, hear, and feel what it’s like to be surrounded by thousands of UUs, this year’s General Assembly promises to be historic both as a Justice General Assembly engaging public issues in New Orleans, and as delegates and UUA leadership address the issues and concerns around a legacy of white supremacy that has been much in our public conversation in recent months.  Don’t miss out!  You can attend the fabulous GA worship services, the always-powerful Ware Lecture, the LoveResists Public Witness, and this year’s important Plenary sessions via live-streaming video at http://www.uua.org/ga/off-site/2017.

Rev. David Morris at General Assembly
From Monday, June 18 through Tuesday, June 27th, David will be in New Orleans (or en route), representing our congregation at the annual Unitarian Universalist Association gathering.  David can be reached by phone, text, or email during GA.  He will share his experiences and reflections in a “Postcards from GA” service on July 2nd.
