We gather as an inclusive community to inspire spiritual growth, compassionate living, and joyful service.

UUCC Mission Statement

Drop in for a visit.  You probably have more in common with us than you may think.

You are welcome.  No matter who you are, where you are on your journey, sexual orientation, age, ability/disability, or gender identity, we welcome you.  We are a community where members, friends, and visitors gather in open-minded and non-judgmental support of each other to seek wisdom where it may be found, to follow the principles and purposes of the Unitarian Universalist Association, and to give service to our greater community in a spirit of love.

The UU Congregation of Cookeville is part of the Unitarian Universalist Association of North America and is an ethical and liberal religious community dedicated to promoting the on-going search for truth and to affirming the inherent worth of the individual.

Please join us after the service for refreshments and conversation. Anyone wearing a UUCC name tag will be happy to answer any questions about our congregation.

If it’s your first visit, here are a few questions you might have:


Dress at our church is eclectic and informal. Visitors will feel comfortable in business casual to contemporary social attire. Come in high heels, a leisure suit, a dashiki, or jeans! You’ll be welcomed just the same regardless of your fashion choices.


UUCC is committed to making our services fully accessible for all people regardless of abilities. Large print hymnals are available upon request.

Our current building has no stairs and our restroom is handicapped accessible.

If there is anything else you need to make the service equally accessible, please let us know.
