I have some experience with my local UU congregation.  It's been a mixed bag.  I'm hoping to share UU experiences with others.

@T. Duker

I can understand the discomfort of visiting a congregation where you don't know anyone. Did you check out their site? Maybe you can meet some people there through social media and then feel more comfortable about attending without your friend. Some UU churches are more social network savvy than others & some are more friendly than others &, unfortunately, few are very racially diverse, though it's improving and we're being intentional about it. It might not be a problem for you living in Montana, but I see you're in the Black Freethought Forum, so I guess it's not totally irrelevant.   I'm currently reading Mark Morrison-Reed's book "In Between: Memoir of an Integration Baby" who is a lifelong UU, now a retired minister in Canada. There are also these sites that might interest you:

Going to the UU church this weekend and the topic is "Bible Study for Skeptics." It sounded too good to miss, and I am hopeful.

Joke: You know what you call an Atheist with children?

A Unitarian Universalist

My parents were also Atheist (though my mother was more Agnostic than my dad) and very active in the UU church in El Paso (there is still a plaque there from 1972 with my father's name on it). When I'm talking to people about UU, I always point out that each UU congregation is different and if you don't like one, try another (and go at least twice because things can change from week to week).

I used to tease my girlfriend about being a UU. "Isn't that the church for atheists who haven't figured out they don't have to go to church anymore?" But, I have found so much value in being UU. There is always a value to community

Link seemed not to work. Meh, search for unitariansa in youtube if you're curious.

Hey, I've been a Unitarian for a few years now (Adelaide Unitarians). I'm a social creature and the Atheist/Skeptic communities while great just weren't cutting the positive as much as they were railing against the negative. We're working on it ^_^. The UUs though cut the positive strong and hard, engage in dialectic communication and actually seem to make a real difference in the local community.

I also love the idea of putting our differences with theists aside for a common good, but then I'm a hopeless diplomat. Fight Ideas not people.

It helps that our Lay minister is an Atheist and our main minister is ... theologically ambiguous. A deist would be too strong a word for her, an agnostic to wishy washy and an atheist too specific. Her husband is a straight up and down naturalist like myself ^_^.

Services are mostly secular though we dip our toe into the crazy occasionally to see what it feels like I guess. see for yourself:

Loving it here already, thanks Mike.
