We invite you to join us in the celebration of life and the search for its meaning.
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 almost 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 May 17
Sunday Service – May 21, 2017, 10:30 a.m.
Lighting the Beacon: Celebrating UUCOB’s First 30 Years – Reverend David Morris
Drawing on thoughts and memories of different “generations” of members, we look across thirty years of Unitarian Universalism on the Outer Banks. The service will be followed by a potluck picnic on the grounds; the Board will provide fried chicken and a vegan alternative entrée, and all are invited to bring a dish to pass. Before lunch, we will dance and weave our UUCOB Maypole!
Heal the World Study Group
Thursday, May 18 6:30 – 8:30 p.m.
This drop-in group meets in the meetinghouse the first and third Thursday of each month and is open to all those interested in the work of building a more just world and to join an ongoing exploration of recent books that open powerful new ways of seeing the systems and structures that perpetuate inequality.
UUA General Assembly Delegates
UUCOB is entitled to two delegates in addition to Rev. David Morris at our 2017 Justice General Assembly in New Orleans, June 21-25. Are you planning to attend, or would you like to register to attend off-site, participating online in many GA events? If so, and if you’d like to represent us as a delegate, please let a Board member know so that we can name delegates for what will very likely be a historic gathering for our Association. Off-site delegates can vote and participate in all the business of the Association that takes place at GA. The cost of off-site registration is $165. More information is available athttps://www.uua.org/ga/registration/off-site.
