Everyone Belongs


Dear Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Kern County members and friends,


I’m writing to confirm what you already know, that all in person UUFKC sponsored events are cancelled until further notice. We take the safety and health of our congregants very seriously and we are complying with official Health Agency guidelines and recommendations. The UUA has recommended we be prepared to have virtual meetings through next year. We really hope that will not be needed and that we will be able to safely meet in person soon, but right now while there are so many questions and unknowns, we need to protect our most vulnerable. Our decisions must be based on the scientific information we have. If some of our precautions turn out to be overzealous, that would be so much better than realizing that we didn’t do enough to keep each other safe. We look forward to seeing every single one of you at church when it’s finally safe to do so.


In the meantime, we have several opportunities to meet up over Zoom. If you are NOT getting these invitations, please let me know ASAP. Over Zoom, we meet for Sunday Worship Services, Men’s Breakfast, Seasoned Souls Lunch, and an all new bookclub! We may even start up some other groups if we have enough volunteers to make it happen. 


I want to thank everyone for all of the work you do for this fellowship. And please do not hesitate to ask for help.  


Elizabeth Jackson

UUFKC Board President, 2020-2021

About Us

A Thriving Congregation in Kern County

We are brave, curious, and compassionate thinkers and doers. We are diverse in faith, ethnicity, history and spirituality, but aligned in our desire to make a difference for the good. We have a track record of standing on the side of love, justice, and peace.

We have radical roots and a history as self-motivated spiritual people: we think for ourselves and recognize that life experience influences our beliefs more than anything.

We need not think alike to love alike. We are people of many beliefs and backgrounds: people with a religious background, people with none, people who believe in a God, people who don’t, and people who let the mystery be.

We are Unitarian Universalist and BuddhistChristianHinduHumanistJewishMuslimPaganatheist and agnosticbelievers in God, and more.

On the forefront of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer inclusion for more than 40 years, we are people of all sexual orientations and gender identities.

We welcome you: your whole self, with all your truths and your doubts, your worries and your hopes. Join us on this extraordinary adventure of faith. Get involved!
