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!
