Welcome To The Unitarian Universalist Community of Cambria Website
UUCCAMBRIA is a member congregation of the Unitarian Universalist Association of Congregations (UUA).We are a religion that celebrates diversity of belief and is guided by seven principles. Our congregations are places where we gather to nurture our spirits and put our faith into action through social justice work in our communities and the wider world.
Newcomers are always welcome. There is no formal conversion process, so becoming a Unitarian Universalist is simply a matter of self-identification. Membership is voluntary and does not require renouncing other religious affiliations or practices. To find out more about our principles and beliefs please visit our About Us page.
We are located in Cambria at 786 Arlington Street, Cambria, CA. Check the Services/Events Page for times and directions.
UUCC Scholarship Awards Ceremony
On Sunday, June 7th the Unitarian Universalist Community of Cambria held a special service honoring ten CUHS students. The ten were awarded scholarships offered by the UU Social Justice Committee on behalf of the congregation. The service was led by Bobra Tahan and Brad Seek. The Social Justice Committee, headed by Bobra, raised $13,500 from members and friends of the UUCC, which was divided among this year's awardees. Students were selected based upon their commitment to giving back to their communities and setting career goals in professions that benefit society. This year, for the first time, UUCC created a special Scholarship Award in honor of an individual. Renee Johnson received the William Lakin UU Values Award, which was sponsored by his partner, Patricia. "Bill" Lakin, a life-long advocate for justice and equality, was one of the original founders of the UUCC.
The students are all 2015 graduating seniors from CUHS. Nine of the ten recipients attended the service and spoke briefly about their college plans and career ambitions. The ten students receiving awards were: Courtney Castle, Maria Figueroa Guizar, Toby Lyons, Pedro Leonardo Moran, Carson Pierce, Sage Radecki, Tiffany Stevens, Alexander Stoothoff, Ariel West and Renee Johnson. Members of the congregation were encouraged to remain in contact with the students to offer support or mentoring.
