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!

2014 Annual Auction

The theme of this year's Auction is "Eat, Pay, Love" with apologies to Elizabeth Gilbert, author of the book "Eat, Pray, Love." 

SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 15th at 5:00pm

The idea is to offer our annual fundraiser with some fun ideas for building community. There will be a Chili Cook-Off amongst KUUF chefs with attendees benefiting from the competition as everyone samples and votes for the best chili. The silent auction will feature both familiar and new items, with some special items going online in the week prior to the event so any adults can bid by using the internet.

The Committee is requesting service items such as donations of expertise like cooking, carpentry, cleaning, etc., and tickets or gift certificates for items such as a movie and dinner for two. Some of the dinners hosted by longtime KUUF members go quickly because they have become favorites. And the week at a Montana cabin will be available again this year for bidding.

To donate your item go to the following URL and complete the form. If you prefer to have someone else enter it for you, call Ellen Newberg at 692-3981 or 551-7527; or email the committee for help or with questions at auction@kuuf.org
To donate your item online: http://go.kuuf.org/auction

To offer your most delectable chili you can talk to Ellen or Jill Clarridge, or reach Ellen and the committee at the above contact information.

If you would like to donate homemade items to sell to benefit KUUF there will be a table set up for items, generally costing $2-$10.

Other Kitsap UU Fellowships will also be invited. To purchase a ticket look for Ellen, Jill or Lynn Lund at the Sunday service. Tickets are $15 per person in advance, or $25 per person at the door. Scholarships are available.
