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 - April 2014
Services are held at 10:30 a.m. every Sunday. Religious Education and childcare are provided during each service.
Sunday, April 6, 10:30 a.m. Holding Your Seat with Rev. Bryan Jessup - In this service we will think about living with mindfulness with the tension created by our diversity. Parker Palmer says living mindfully with that tension is one of the habits of the heart we need to develop to heal our own lives, our organizations and our democracy.
Sunday, April 13, 10:30 a.m. Why We Ride Donkeys and Eat Matzah with Shay MacKay - As we begin Holy Week leading us to the Christian celebration of Easter and the Jewish holy days of Passover, we take time to reflect on how our lives are being lived. As the Jewish people liberated themselves from slavery in Egypt only to wander through the desert with nothing but unleavened bread to feed them; as Jesus entered Jerusalem on the back of a donkey to triumphant shouts of “Hosanna!” only to be sentenced to death a few days later; so we, too, are called to examine where pride and humility intersect in ourselves and our lives. Shay MacKay, seminarian at Starr King School for the Ministry, will guide us through a reflection on what it means to be humble in today’s world.
Sunday, April 20, 10:30 a.m. Resurrection Happens! with Rev. Bryan Jessup - The poet Alicia Carpenter says that Easter reminds us that something always sings and that out of our deepest despair a green shoot always springs. In this service we will open our hearts to spring and new life. The HUUF Choir will help us.
Sunday, April 27, 10:30 a.m. Lessons from the Edge with Lorena Boswell - Lorena will speak about what she learned when she created the Humboldt Edge, a new street paper that gives a voice to people who are homeless or living on the edge financially. She will talk about some of the challenges she encountered creating and editing this paper as a middle-class person of privilege. Challenges lead to lessons, and there have been plenty for Lorena as she has gotten to know people living on the edge who have enriched her life. Lorena also directs a volunteer center at HSU. She is a seminary student at Starr King School for the Ministry and a poet. She grew up in and around the UU Fellowship of State College Pennsylvania.
