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!

KUUF Stands With Emmanuel AME

In grief, love and solidarity, Kitsap Unitarian Unviversalist Church stands with Emmanuel AME of Charleston, South Carolina. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. emanuelamechurch.org

On a national front, the Rev. Peter Morales, president of the Unitarian Universalist Association, issued this statement:

News of last night’s shootings at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal (AME) Church in Charleston, SC, fills me with a profound sadness. My heart goes out to the families and friends of the victims and to the entire Emanuel Church community. Unitarian Universalists are sadly familiar with the tragedy of church shootings. When two congregants were killed and six wounded at our Tennessee Valley Unitarian Universalist Church in 2008, the entire community reached out and embraced our congregation with love and support. We will pass that love along to the Emanuel Church community in any way we can. Emanuel AME Church has faced many hardships over the years, but the church has persevered and thrived. May Emanuel’s faithful find the strength to make their way through the tragedy that has taken the lives of nine of their members, including their pastor. We share their grief, and we stand with them in love and solidarity."
