Humboldt Unitarian Universalist Fellowship is a thriving liberal religious community of close to 150 members. We work and play together to meet our individual and group needs - be they spiritual, intellectual, or social. We welcome all who seek a religious home, free of creeds and based on love, reason, and conscience. We first met over 60 years ago as a small lay-led fellowship and have grown with the help of strong leadership - both lay and ministerial - to a dynamic fellowship serving Humboldt County and the Northern coast of California. We invite you to browse through our website to learn more about our Sunday services, our programs, social action activities, and religious education.

Sunday, April 12, 9:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. Annual Music Service with Elisabeth Harrington, Levy Walls, and the HUUF Choir
Sunday, April 19, 9:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. Growing the Human Consciousness with Rev. Bryan Jessup - Modern brain and behavioral research indicates that in addition to our notable human capacity for greed and violence, we also have strong tendencies to care for one another and work together to support one another in life. What can we do to grow that part of ourselves that understands we are not isolated competitors destined to work to win at all costs?
Sunday, April 26, 9:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. What's So and So What with Rev. Bryan Jessup - As Unitarian Universalists we value factual truth. And beyond truth we value what it means to us and how we handle it. Human beings have, for example, learned a great deal about atomic energy. What we do with that knowledge makes all the difference in the world.
Sunday, May 3, 9:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. The Only Truth is in a Love Poem with Vanessa Pike-Vrtiak and Therese FitzMaurice: The arts document a long vibrant history of individuals engaged in what UU’s name “a free and responsible search for truth and meaning.” Framed by Lewis Hyde’s work the Gift, spoken word artists Vanessa Pike-Vrtiak and Therese FitzMaurice will share how listening, writing and performing have become their primary tools for uncovering wisdom and purpose in their very own lives. 9:00 am and 11:00 am
Sunday, May 10, 9:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. Mother's Day with with Rev. Bryan Jessup - In this service several mothers from several different generations will reflect on the reality of raising children and creating a home in our day and time. They will talk about what challenges them as they act as mothers in our society and what might be helpful to them.
Sunday, May 17, 9:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. Acceptance! with with Rev. Bryan Jessup - The world around us, people around us, and we ourselves often fall short of our best hopes and intentions. Learning to love and embrace our world, ourselves and one another right where we are is the foundation for growing toward what we might become. Plants grow toward sunshine. So do we.
Sunday, May 24, 9:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. Getting Clear with Girija Moran and Swami Girijananda: How we think – what we pay attention to, what concerns us, what we hold as true - affects our well-being and everything we do. At the 11:00 service Girija Moran, Swami Girijananda, will share teachings and practices from Hindu Yoga and Tibetan Buddhism to help us understand the nature of mind. This understanding not only enhances our peace of mind, it can transform our way of being in the world. Bonnie MacGregor and Julie Neander will be the Worship Leaders and will engage in a discussion about the teachings at the 9:00 service.
Sunday, May 31, 9:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. Can You Imagine That? with with Rev. Bryan Jessup - Can you imagine a world in which every person is honored and all things living are treated with respect and care? The Buddha had that vision. So did the teacher Jesus. The reign of harmony is at hand whenever we truly listen to and respect each person. The challenge comes in getting that listening and respect to last in ourselves and others.

Bryan Jessup and others from the congregation will reflect on good fathers they have known, and what it was that made them good.
