Welcome to Kitsap Unitarian Universalist Fellowship (KUUF) where people from all over the Kitsap Peninsula region have gathered since 1950 to share liberal religious values and the common search for greater understanding that gives spiritual meaning to our lives. We come together for Sunday worship to learn, to participate in social and community action, to care for one another and enjoy our differences, and to nurture our children and youth through religious education.

We welcome and celebrate all adults, children and youth regardless of faith, creed, race, color, ethnic or national origin; sexual orientation, gender, or gender expression; age, mental or physical ability, economic status, or political affiliation. Ours is a vital and growing congregation, with many programs and activities to offer.

We look forward to seeing you.  Services are usually at 10:30 on Sunday.  Our fellowship is located at 4418 Perry Avenue NE in Bremerton.  The Sanctuary is in the lower building.

 

We hope you will find yourself at home - newcomers and visitors are always welcome!
