Welcome to the Unitarian Universalists of Central Delaware
Greetings, and welcome to the Unitarian Universalists of Central Delaware (UUCD). If you are new to Unitarian Universalism (UU), you are in for a real adventure. If you know a little (or a lot) about UU’s, this will be somewhat familiar territory.
We were chartered in 2009; but we come out of a long progressive tradition of freethinking, responsible people who take very seriously growing as spiritual beings. We are a small group, but value enthusiastically sharing our time energy and talent.
What Do We Believe?
It is difficult to briefly describe the complexity and diversity of our spiritual community. That’s because we are more about supporting and engaging each other on our own individual spiritual journeys, than on making truth claims or seeking conformity. It is often said that we are more interested in a good discussion, than in agreement. So rather than being about a belief system, we are about personal freedom and personal responsibility. We each have the personal freedom to search for our own understanding. With that comes the personal responsibility to follow through on that quest. In the words of retired UU minister Richard Gilbert, we: ‘provide tools for building a theology based on the materials of our individual life experiences.’
So if you are looking for a spiritual home which:
- welcomes you as you are,
- celebrates the human condition as it is,
- challenges us to explore the meanings of our lives, and the commitments which give it purpose,
- encourages us to ask questions about our understanding of the sacred and divine,
- engages with us in the answers we find,
- offers the support of a caring community, and
- provides us with a safe place to discover more about ourselves;
then come and join us. We gather on Sunday mornings to celebrate life.

The Rev. Dr. Kharma R. Amos is absolutely thrilled to serve as our part-time minister. Rev. Amos was ordained by Metropolitan Community Churches in 2002, and she has served in MCC as a local church pastor (9 years) and denominational staff (8 years). She has been working with the Unitarian Universalist Association to receive plural standing (dual affiliation) for the last year, and is nearly finished with that process.
For more information about Rev. Amos, please see our Our Minister page.

PRIDE – Rev. Kharma Amos
We will be celebrating LGBTQ Pride, which occurs in the month of June (in the US). Our focus will be on the First Principle of Unitarian Universalism, our belief in the inherent worth and dignity of every person, through the specific lens of affirming the LGBTQ community. Let’s celebrate the progress towards equality that has been made in society AND honor the reality that many people are still marginalized and oppressed because of their sexuality or gender identity. We affirm our commitment to be welcoming, and to work for sex/gender justice.
The service will be conducted in a Zoom meeting. Please email email@example.com for information about joining us in the Zoom meeting.
