You are always welcome at our Sunday Services! Please come as you are; our services enjoy an informal, family-oriented atmosphere. Explore this website for our principles and beliefs and the activities and events that go on at Berrien UU Fellowship (we call it "BUUF" -- rhymes with "enough"!) Come visit us and ask questions! Visitors are invited to join us for coffee and conversation immediately following each service. We usually gather again after coffee for a brief discussion of the morning’s topic; you are invited to participate in the discussion. And, we invite you to join us again. We enjoy Sunday services featuring a wide array of ministers and guest speakers. So try us several times to get a real feel for who we are.
If you . . . Believe that every person is important and valuable . . . Feel there is a spiritual value in all the world’s religions and philosophies . . . Find inspiration in the wonder of nature and the mystery of life . . . Want to help build a just society and peaceful world . . . Believe we should think for ourselves in our search for meaning. . . you might already be a Unitarian Universalist and not even know it.
About our church
BUUF is a member of the Unitarian Universalist Association, which has more than 1000 congregations worldwide. Unitarian Universalism spans six centuries of liberal religious tradition -- from Transylvania, where Prince John Sigismund proclaimed himself a Unitarian in 1568 and published the Edict of Torda (also known as the Patent of toleration) ... to the Unitarian Unversalist Association's modern movement of welcoming all people, regardless of race, gender, sexual/affectational orientation or ability.
Unitarians and Universalists have their roots in the Protestant Reformation. In Unitarianism and Universalism virtually every aspect of religion is open to doubt and debate. On May 11, 1961, Unitarians and Universalists combined their organizational strength by becoming the Unitarian Universalist Association.
The Berrien Unitarian Universalist Fellowship (BUUF) arose from the founders’ desire for a broad religious education for their children. The Fellowship has been a liberal voice in southwest Michigan for four decades. Through the years, BUUF has been both minister and lay led. We continually search for a richer spiritual base in a community which is vital and caring. We welcome your participation and would be delighted if you choose to become a member.
