Our Mission: We, the Unitarian Universalist Church of Cortland, nurture and honor individual and shared searches for spiritual, intellectual, and emotional understanding. We draw upon the 7 Unitarian Universalist Principles and a range of traditions to support individuals, families, our congregation, and larger communities. We embrace diversity and actively address social concerns while creating a caring community of our own.
Universalist circuit rider Nathaniel Stacy held regular meetings in the area starting around 1807.
The congregation was established 1813 as a Universalist Church.
The Cobblestone Church was built as a Universalist Church, 1836-1837.
"The congregation of the Unitarian Universalist (U.U.) Church hosted
suffragettes, abolitionists, and other social reformers who traveled the lecture
circuit in the early 1800s. The words of Susan B. Anthony, Henry Ward Beecher,
William Lloyd Garrison, Clara Barton, Ralph Waldo Emerson, and Lucretia Mott
rang through the sanctuary of the U.U. Cobblestone Church."

Nationally, the Unitarians and Universalists merged in 1961 to become the Unitarian Universalist Association. Shortly afterward the Universalist Church of Cortland was renamed the Unitarian Universalist Church of Cortland.
