Introduction to QUUF
Welcome to Quimper Unitarian Universalist Fellowship (QUUF), a religiously liberal congregation founded in 1976. QUUF is a community whose fellowship is based on covenant rather than creed. We intentionally welcome all persons who seek to deepen the life of the spirit. We are a member congregation of the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA), a consolidation in 1961 of the Unitarian and Universalist denominations, each with a religiously liberal history in the U.S. since the early 1800s.
We extend a special welcome to visitors and guests. During the service you will be invited to briefly introduce yourself, if you feel comfortable doing so. Please join us in a social time following the service.
During the regular church year (first Sunday after Labor Day through the second Sunday of June) Sunday services are held at 9:15am and 11:15am. Summer services, beginning at 10am, are held each Sunday from mid-June through Labor Day.
RELIGIOUS EDUCATION FOR CHILDREN AND YOUTH
Religious Education classes for children (infant through 8th grade) are held at 10am in the summer and at 9:15am during the rest of the year. Childcare is available at all Sunday services. High school-age youth meet on Sunday evenings from 6 to 8pm. We seek to provide a safe and nurturing environment in which our children and youth can develop a spiritual foundation on which to base their lives. Please contact our Director of Family Ministry, Kathy Stevenson for more information or to register your child(ren) for classes.
PROGRAMS, CLASSES, GROUPS & VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES
QUUF has a wide range of programs, classes, groups, and volunteer opportunities in adult education, music, social concerns, and recreation, intended to enrich personal and community life. Our adult classes, Covenant Groups, and Affinity Groups are open to members and non-members alike. Information about our programs and our approach to religion can be found in our Sunday bulletins, in our emailed Weekly Update, and on this website.
OFFERINGS AND CONTRIBUTIONS
As a congregation that strives to realize our hopes for the larger community, twice a month our plate offerings are taken for other worthy local organizations that are selected by our Designated Offering Committee. Additionally, in the first Sunday of the month, our plate offering is equally divided between the local food bank (H.O.P.E. offering) and ourselves. QUUF is entirely supported by annual pledges from members and friends and by the contributions of visitors. We welcome your support. For a bequest or other gift to our Endowment Funds, please contact our Board Treasurer.
