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 50 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 - December 2013
Services are held at 10:30 a.m. every Sunday. Religious Education and childcare are provided during each service.
Sunday, December 1st at 10:30 a.m. - Chalica with Rev. Bryan Jessup - Chalica is the Unitarian Universalist response to the winter holiday season. Might it be possible for us UUs in this time of year to center on our Principles and light candles in the darkness for the life-giving values we affirm and promote? Might we remember other winter holidays and still make room for our own emerging practices?
Friday, December 6th at 6:00 p.m. - All Fellowship Monthly Potluck - After sharing all the yummy food we bring, there will some holiday arts and crafts for all ages. We will make popcorn and cranberry garlands and tree decorations, and then we'll decorate our Fellowship tree!
Sunday, December 8th at 10:30 a.m. - The Nativity Story, UU Style with the children of HUUF RE - The children of HUUF invite you to join them for a very special Sunday morning. It is common for UUs to have mixed feelings about Christmas and the biblical story of Jesus' birth, but we also covenant to affirm our Christian heritage along with wisdom from all of the world's religions. In preparing for this year's Holiday program, the RE teachers decided to try something new.
Sunday, December 15th at 10:30 a.m. - Seeking Knowledge in Freedom with Rev. Bryan Jessup - Unitarian Universalists have a history of asking and answering quesetions about whatever touches their hearts and minds. Freedom of the press, freedom of information, freedom of the pulpit, freedom of religious exploration - all of these are important to us. Who do you know who is seeking knowledge? Are they free to do so?
Saturday, December 21st at 7:00 p.m. - A Winter Solstice Celebration with Rev. Bryan Jessup -
Come gather round the fire to celebrate the rebirth of light and warmth. There will be food, friends and a fine time along with life-enhancing rituals and songs.
Sunday, December 22nd at 10:30 a.m. - Light Out of Darkness with Rev. Bryan Jessup - In cultures and religions from all around the world, in the darkest time of year, people have celebrated the spark of light that will not be extinguished. In our darkest, most difficult times, we human beings have found in ourselves the ability to still feel compassion for one another and a driving need to care. In this holiday service, we will celebrate the light that will not let us go.
Tuesday, December 24th at 5:30 p.m. - The Christmas Eve Service with Rev. Bryan Jessup and the HUUF Choir - Come for a Christmas service of readings, carols and delightful music from the choir, directed by Elisabeth Harrington.
Sunday, December 29th at 10:30 a.m. - Striving for "Imprefection" with Scott "Q" Marcus - One of the more insidious myths that prevades our society is that in order to get more done, one must strive for perfection. Scott believes nothing is further from the truth. In an upbeat, humorous, playful yet thought-provoking fashion, he will show that the pursuit of perfection is a barrier to improving oneself, business or community and is used as an excuse to avoid having to make changes necessary to accomplish goals. The author of seven books, Scott has lost 2,327 pounds if you add up all the weight he has lost and regained since childhood. This has earned him the moniker "THINspirational" speaker and writer.
