Covenant of Unitarian Universalist Pagans (CUUPs)
The First U CUUPs group is happy to be hosting the Church Celebration of Life on Sunday September 21st. We will be celebrating the Autumnal Equinox. It is the time of year when we take a few moments to honor the changing seasons, and celebrate the second harvest of Mabon. For many Earth-Centered traditions it is a time of giving thanks for the things we have, whether it is abundant crops or other blessings in our lives. Please join us for this special Sunday Service at 11:00AM.
Please join the Covenant of Unitarian Universalist Pagans of First Unitarian Church or CUUPs, as we celebrate the turning of the Wheel of the Year with our Sabbat Celebrations.
Sabbat Circles are open to the public and anyone with a positive path is welcome. Our Celebrations are held at the First Unitarian Church of Louisville.

In addition to community and fellowship, we offer classes. Our classes are a blend of lecture and discussion with seekers, those new to the path, and experienced practitioners in attendance. We host a variety of topics that have included Four Cornerstones of Magick, Sabbat Lore/Traditions, Beginning Meditation, Divination, Herbal Magick and many other topics.
We are currently using a Pagan curriculum that has topics including Personal Altars, God/Goddesses, Divination, Candle Magick and many other topics.
Classes are on the first and third Wednesday of each Month. Each week we discuss topics that are independent of each other so drop in when you are able to join us.
Classes meet from 7:00pm until about 8:30pm
