Keweenaw Unitarian Universalist Fellowship
An Inclusive Religious Community in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula
The Keweenaw Unitarian Universalist Fellowship (KUUF) is a Welcoming Congregation of people of diverse religious and spiritual beliefs. We foster the free exchange and exploration of ideas in a supportive atmosphere of mutual acceptance and friendship. We believe in encouraging justice, equality, compassion, and growth for all humankind, and responsible stewardship of our environment.

The seven principles which Unitarian Universalist congregations affirm and promote:
1. The inherent worth and dignity of every person;
2. Justice, equity and compassion in human relations;
3. Acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth in our congregations;
4. A free and responsible search for truth and meaning;
5. The right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in society at large;
6. The goal of world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all;
7. Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part.
