Our informal motto is “Deeds before creeds.” Unitarian Universalism has roots in Christianity, but UU continues to evolve, drawing inspiration from many sources. The UU Fellowship of Columbus is truly non-denominational. Members subscribe to a range of religious, philosophical and ethical traditions. We are Christians, Jews, Buddhists, atheists, agnostics, humanists, Wiccans and more.

What ties us together are commitments to human rights and care for the planet. If you’ve had doubts about other organized religions, you might find a home here. (We’re not that organized.)

We’re meeting in person now, but watching local pandemic statistics. And we do take precautions, which you’ll find here.
