Located in a low-density section of the city, our 8+ acre property includes a 25,000 square-foot building, a separate parsonage, and approximately 150 off-street parking spaces in a lower and an upper parking lot. Approximately 30 percent of the site is developed with buildings and paved areas. The balance includes wetlands, wooded areas, and steep terrain. The building is prominently sited at the edge of a plateau.
The CUUC building is of a unique mid-century design that embraces the surrounding natural setting. The building includes three components:
- The Sanctuary (left);
- The Religious Exploration wing (right), with one central “pod” and four additional pods, each containing 3 to 4 classrooms; and
- A central area containing offices, kitchen, restrooms, and the meeting space Fellowship Hall.
The Building & Grounds Committee manages the grounds in a safe and environmentally responsible manner. There is an ongoing effort to ecologically restore the grounds, to the extent feasible, through removal of non-native, invasive plants, and encouragement and re-introduction of plants that are native to our area. An effort is also being made to prevent erosion and runoff to protect water and soil quality and to maintain a safe environment.
The Memorial Garden, officially called The Jule Brown Sibley Memorial Garden, was dedicated in May 1995 and named after Jule Sibley, the member who dedicated much time and energy to the project. Congregation members, their partners, or children, or anyone invited by the minister, are eligible to make arrangements for the placing of ashes in the garden. The interment area is considered sacred ground and is maintained by a committee.
