The Unitarian Universalist Society of Cleveland is a joyful, welcoming, religious community. We strive to be a sanctuary for all who enter, to reflect the diversity of the local community, and to work toward a more just and sustainable society. We are located in the Coventry neighborhood of Cleveland Heights and are a member of the Unitarian Universalist Association of Congregations.
As a Unitarian Universalist congregation we are a non-creedal community. We do not require anyone to subscribe to a specific set of beliefs to be a member of the Society. Instead we live by a covenant that encourages ethical behavior, affirms democracy, celebrates the worth of each individual and unites us in a search for meaning and in reverence for the great mystery that is life.
We are a welcoming congregation and all persons are warmly invited to participate in the life and activities of our community, regardless of color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, physical or mental abilities or economic status.
We hope that you will join us as we strive to create a diverse, spiritually-uplifting, life-affirming and justice-centered community.

February Movie Night
Intergenerational Movie Night—March 15: Due to extremely cold weather on the previously scheduled date, the Intergenerational movie night has been changed to Sunday, March 15th at 4:00 pm. The movie is “The Incredibles”, which is an animated movie about two hours long. After a string of lawsuits forces a family of superheroes to rein in their powers and go into hiding in suburbia, a mysterious source asks the out-of-shape patriarch, Mr. Incredible, for help -- but it's a trap. We will have pizza. Please note the earlier time to accommodate family schedules. All are welcome, and kids need to have an adult along who is responsible for them.

Standing on the Side of Love T-Shirts
SSL is a Unitarian Universalist Project begun by young adults, inspired by the 2008 shooting at Tennessee Valley Unitarian Universalist Church in Knoxville, which was targeted because they are welcoming to LGBTQ people and have a liberal stance on many issues. Rev. Joe's sermon on February 15th referred to how goldenrod t-shirts changed how we see each other, and how the world sees us. To listen to the sermon, click on the podcast. The yellow Standing on the Side of Love T-Shirts that Rev. Joe referred to in his sermon, can be purchased by calling the UUA at 800-215-9076 or going online to their website.
