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.

Upcoming Events at HUUF - May 2016
We currently hold two Services every Sunday. The first begins at 9:00 a.m. and the second begins held 11:00 a.m. every Sunday.
Childcare is provided during both services and Religious Education is provided at the 11:00 a.m. service.
Sunday, May 1 – 9 and 11 a.m. The Power and Light of May Day – Renee Saucedo. Renee Saucedo, a long-time community organizer and advocate, will share her perspective on the meaning of May 1st and how immigrant communities currently have "reclaimed" International Workers Day. She will share some of the main challenges facing the Latino, immigrant community, locally and nationally. And she will talk about how immigrant workers are building power and making change. The congregation will also surround ourselves with flowers, reminding us of the warmer, brighter days to come for us all.
Sunday, May 8 – 9 and 11 a.m. Mother's Day, Women Influencing World Decisions – Jamila Tharp. In this service young people and adults from the Hoopa Reservation will talk with us about what is happening in their lives. They will introduce us to the “Native Lives Matter” of which they are a part and will talk with us about how we can support them in their efforts to let the waters of their rivers flow and let the people of their culture stand again on the earth in a healthy way.
Sunday, May 15 – 9 and 11 a.m. Pentecost and Why It Might Matter – Reverend Bryan Jessup. Fifty days after the Hebrews escaped Egypt they received the Torah at Mt. Sinai. Fifty days after the Resurrection, Jesus’s follower’s received the “Spirit” at Pentecost. It was a spirit of love and care for all creation and it spoke in many tongues. What might the Christian myth of Pentecost have to teach us?
Sunday, May 22 – 9 and 11 a.m. Why Bother With Consensus? – Reverend Bryan Jessup. In this congregation’s by-laws and in its covenant, the congregation’s early members called themselves to conduct their meetings, as much as possible, by consensus. These early members gave the congregation a way “out” if consensus was not possible, but their intent was clearly to build consensus as much as possible. But consensus requires a lot of work and maturity from everybody involved. Why do you suppose the early members thought working this way was worth the effort? And how can consensus work when a congregation grows?
Sunday, May 29 – 9 and 11 a.m. Lessons on Memorial Day – Reverend Bryan Jessup. We all die. On Memorial Day, though, we remember some of our dead more than others. Why? What kind of people does our society want us to remember? What kind of people actually stay with us in our thoughts? What might the people we remember tell us about how to live? In this service we will consider these things.
