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 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!

Been Up So Long It Feels Like Down to Me – Bryan Jones
You don’t have to be wealthy or powerful to be privileged.  There is a form of privilege that has come so easily to a certain group of us that it often goes unnoticed by the people in that group.  What does it mean to be a white male American in the 21st century?
A sermon from the “Shared Pulpit” series.

Pledge Drive
The Pledge Drive for our next fiscal year starting July 1 is underway!  You should have received a Pledge Packet either in person or by mail.  Please let Sandy or Sherrie know if you have not received one and would like to.  Please return the pledge form (no money is necessary until July) to the Treasurer by May 16.  Thank you for your generosity.

Showing Up for Racial Justice Webinar
The national anti-racism group Showing Up for Racial Justice (SURJ) is offering a free “political education” webinar on the idea of Sanctuary. If you have an interest in considering what Sanctuary might mean in the Outer Banks or for us at UUCOB, you’re invited to join the webinar.  Here’s the information from SURJ:

On Thursday, March 23, at 8pm Eastern/5pm Pacific, we’re offering a “political education” webinar with two organizers who have been at the core of national work to defy Trump, defend communities, and expand sanctuary.
Tania Unzueta — Policy and Legal Director with Mijente — and Janaé Bonsu — National Public Policy Chair with Black Youth Project 100 (BYP 100) — will join us to talk about their work to expand the idea of “sanctuary” beyond its historical meaning to a more modern and intersectional framework, as well as how you can help organize in your community to support these efforts.

You can RSVP for the call using this link.
