Welcome to the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Cleveland! We strive to be a large, vibrant spiritual community, known for our warm welcome and fierce, compassionate commitment to justice.

We recognize and celebrate that everyone’s spiritual journey is unique, and we have multiple avenues that our congregants can find spiritual fulfillment and growth in our community. Whether you meet your spiritual needs through Sunday services, religious education, music, community engagement and small groups, or championing social or environmental justice, UUCC is here to support you.

Unitarian Universalist congregations are committed to seven Principles that include the worth of each person, the need for justice and compassion, and the right to choose one’s own beliefs.  Our congregation promotes these principles through regular worship, learning and personal growth, shared connection and care, social justice and service, celebration of life’s transitions, and much more.

UUCC adopted the 8th Principle in June, 2022, “We, the member congregations of the Unitarian Universalist Association, covenant to affirm and promote: journeying toward spiritual wholeness by working to build a diverse multicultural Beloved Community by our actions that accountably dismantle racism and other oppressions in ourselves and our institutions.” UUCC is participating in the UU-wide review of Article 2 and the Principles during 2023.

In 2023, UUCC adopted a Congregational Covenant:

We Cultivate trust with one another by celebrating differences, honoring boundaries, and offering compassion and care.

We Listen to each other deeply with curiosity and wonder.

We Speak for ourselves, without need to defend ourselves or persuade each other.

We Create safe and brave space for healthy conflict, creativity, and fun.

We Reconcile through forgiving and making amends when we hurt one another.

We invite you to learn more about Unitarian Universalism, our Beliefs, our Principles and Sources of Faith, and our Traditions and Rites of Passage.
