Find us and you shall seek! The Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Columbia (UUCC) strives to be an open and meaningful spiritual community committed to making the world a better place and welcomes all who aspire to such values.
Unlike many religious traditions, we have no creed, but value the wisdom inherent in all the world’s traditions. Just as the First Amendment provides for freedom of religion, so does Unitarian Universalism provide freedom in religion. As may be expected, this freedom attracts people from many varied religious traditions. In fact, a majority of our members are not home-bred UUs. Therefore, no matter whom you are, where you are from or how you were raised, you are welcome here. Our community includes over 400 adult Members, more than 150 children, and several hundred Friends.
UUCC was gathered in 1964 as the Unitarian Universalist Society of Howard County shortly after the Unitarian-Universalist merger (in 1961) and just before the founding of Columbia (in 1967), a community whose roots echo many UU principles. For several years our congregation met in founding members’ homes and rented space in a variety of locations before building the Owen Brown Interfaith Center with Christ United Methodist Church in 1984.
