The Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Loveland, Colorado

We radiate love, peace, and justice.

We are a church of Open Minds, Helping Hands, and Loving Hearts

First Home

The Nomadic Journey is coming to an end.  We are very pleased to announce that on November 22, 2015, NUUC will celebrate its first service in our very own home.  After 15 years of renting seven different spaces for Sunday service, Youth Religious Education, Auction, social events, office, we purchased an existing 100 year old church at 745 E 5th Street in downtown Loveland.  In our permanent home we will continue to work toward our mission:
“… to foster a beloved community that celebrates diversity, strives for peace and justice, acts mindfully for the good of the planet, and inspires spiritual growth through a free and loving search for truth and meaning.”

Join us on Sunday, November 22 at 10:00 am for our service “Welcome Home!”
Rev. Laurel Liefert, Namaqua Covenant Chorale, Children and Youth, Director of Religion Education Kathy Vaughn, Worship Associates Karen Brock, Andy Carlson, Brenda Christiansen, Mim Neal.

This is the Sunday we’ve been waiting for! Join us for a joyous multigenerational service with singing, drumming, stories, poetry and more – in our own home! After the service we will celebrate with cake and a party!
