Who We Are

Located in the Outer Banks of North Carolina, we are a congregation of people from diverse locations, pulled by the beauty, calm energy, and unique environmental geography of this barrier island.

We are a small, caring, inclusive, and welcoming congregation. We welcome and offer friendship to kindred spirits of any race, nationality, religious background, sexual orientation, or gender identity.

We strive to reach our potential as an important voice for social justice in an increasingly polarized society. We are curious people of many beliefs from all corners of the country. We prize education, science, nature, and spirituality, comfortable knowing that we may never solve the mysteries of the universe. We treasure ancient traditions and teachings as well as modern scientific discoveries and enjoy sharing the knowledge we gain with each other in deep discussion.

We believe in UUA’s Seven Principles as we work for justice, and strive to make the world a better place for all, respecting the dignity and worth of every person

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
