Covenant of Unitarian Universalist Pagans (CUUPs)

CUUPs ChalicePlease 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.

At Beltane, we begin, to see a new light, to feel a new energy, a more wild energy.

This is the energy of the sun. The days are continuing to grow. The days continually grow warmer and warmer. Beltane marks that the winter's journey has passed and summer has begun. The most familiar custom at Beltane is the Maypole. We will be dancing the Maypole at our Beltane Circle Celebration. This is a rain or shine event held in our Sanctuary.

Please join us on Sunday, April 27th as we celebrate Beltane here in the Church.  The Ritual will be followed by a pitch-in and share dinner.  Times are below.

  • Ostara - March 2015

Our Sabbat Circles are held on Sunday night. Doors open at 5:30 PM and Circle starts at 6PM. A potluck dinner follows around 7 PM so please bring something to share with others and stay to enjoy conversation with those of a like mind.


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.  

7:00pm until about 8:30pm

CUUPs is a free and open community of people who practice earth-based spiritualities.
There is no charge to attend Circles or classes.
