Thank you for visiting. Join us at our next Sunday service, at 6200 N. Garrett in Garden City:

August 30, 10 am

"Moving beyond the 'Why?' questions," Kenneth Watts

"For everything there is a season and a time and for every purpose under heaven. A time to be born, and a time to die...." (Ecclesiastes 3:1-2) Very poetic. But the difficult part of life is everything that happens in between!

So often in the hospital I hear the "Why?" questions from family members, patients, and others in the midst of painful medical realities. In my early days of ministry in the conservative Christian tradition I tried hard to have all the right answers. After all, I was the minister. Nowadays, I find that keeping my mouth shut and listening is much more helpful than spewing forth my seminary wisdom. As Mark Twain is said to have put it: "We never become really and genuinely our entire and honest selves until we are dead—and not then until we have been dead years and years. People ought to start dead and then they would be honest so much earlier." Dena Duke, celebrant; David Scott, service coordinator


Reverend Sara LaWall

Our Newly Called Minister

On Sunday, May 3, the Boise Unitarian Universalist Fellowship voted (unanimously!) to call Reverend Sara LaWall to be our next settled Minister. We're looking forward to the start of work together, in August. More information about the completion of the multiyear process is available on our Ministerial Transition page.

Regular Service times

Our regular Sunday service in June, July and Auguest is at 10:00 am. Nursery care is available, and we have a children's religious exploration program during the service.

About Unitarian Universalists

Unitarian Universalists believe people are ultimately responsible for their own religious beliefs and practice. We don't try to tell anyone "this is what you should believe" or "this is how you should live." Instead, we seek to build a supportive community in which individuals can explore and share their spiritual understanding.

The Boise Unitarian Universalist Fellowship (BUUF) is a community of members and friends, a mix of long-time Unitarian Universalists, people who have left the church of their youth, spiritual seekers and avowed atheists, Christians, Jews, agnostics, and humanists. We share a sense of mystery and wonder of the universe, allegiance to the scientific method, love of nature, and tolerance for diverse religious beliefs. We share respect for life and the land which sustains us, and a commitment to individual responsibility and freedom of belief. Follow the link to our Membership page to learn more about us.

Visitors are welcome at every Sunday Service. Contact us ( if you would like more information about our church or activities.
