Community Outreach

December 2022

For the holidays this year, UUCOB partnered with JCOB (Jewish Community of the Outer Banks) to provide meals for Room In The Inn from December 18th to 24th. It was a huge success, thanks to UUCOB’s Nancy Byrne and JCOB’s Anne Lyons at the helm, organizing and guiding the project. Thanks to all who contributed funds, their time and their cooking!

OBX Room in the Inn is a faith-based organization providing hospitality, food, and shelter, to homeless adults in the Outer Banks during the winter months and support services year-round. 


February 2022 UUCOB Vigil for Ukraine
A vigil in solidarity with the people of Ukraine, marking one month since the February 24th Russian invasion. The vigil was sponsored by UUCOB and led by Revs. David and Gaye Morris, with help from members of the North Dare Ministerial Association, members of the Outer Banks Ukrainian community, local civic leaders, and musician Ruth Wyand.  We had a strong UUCOB showing of compassion and care for our siblings living with the nightmare of war.
