For last year’s words belong to last year’s language
And next year’s words await another voice.
And to make an end is to make a beginning.
— T.S. Eliot (Little Gidding)
Welcome to the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Northern Chautauqua
Nurture your spirit, help heal the world! Members and friends of our congregation support each other’s individual spiritual development, as we work toward peace, liberty and justice in our immediate and global communities.
The congregation serves the spiritual needs of north county families and individuals, many of whom come to Unitarian Universalism from other religious traditions. No acceptance of a formal creed is required. New members and friends are always welcome.
UUCNC is a Welcoming Congregation; see Activities (at left), then the Social Action (it will appear on the left) for more information about how the designation underscores our commitment as a congregation to increasing our welcome of people with marginalized sexual orientations and/or gender identities.

Farewell From Our Minister
THANK YOU!!! What a most delightful and beautiful farewell potluck brunch you gave me June 28th. I am so appreciative of all the efforts given to make it a tasty, welcoming event, full of finesse! Heartfelt thanks to Cate and to Judy S. in particular for their wonderful organizing and coordination of things. And thanks, too, to all others who helped with setup and cleanup. And thanks to all who came and brought tasty treats and good hearts. I think there were around 50 of us!
So much caring and such great food – what a send-off and completion to this chapter in our ministry together. I was so touched by the beautiful blessing you gave me and I look forward to buying a plant that will remind me of my time with all of you in ministry for my yard with the gift certificate you gave me. I loved the songs sung to me! Such fun, though bittersweet at moments.
Your next minister will be a lucky soul, as I have been, to be blessed by connection with you all.
With all good wishes to each of you,
