Community

A Spiritual Home

First Unitarian Church is a spiritual home for people from all walks of life. We are a community of all ages and backgrounds. We are spiritual seekers, Christians, Jews, Buddhists and atheists. We are united in our covenant of love, spirit, worship and service. The Church helps adults build community and serve the wider world.

The UU Sisterhood is a women's group sharing food, stories, and fun. They have monthly potluck suppers on the third Friday of every month. After supper they share a variety of activities which promote the bonds of friendship and deepen connections with the church and each other. 

UU Guys

UUGuys (pronounced youz-guys) is the moniker for the church men's group.  The group meets monthly for dinner, and also schedules a range of other events throughout the year. For example, they have had hikes, game nights, and watched and discussed TED talks. They also sponsor the New Year's Eve party at the church. 

Voices Among Us

There is a hunger among us to hear what fellow members have to say and to participate in discussion. Set for the fourth Monday of the month, the program begins with an optional 6 PM potluck meal.  From 7-8 PM we gather in the Chapel. The facilitator presents for 20-30 minutes then the floor is open for discussion. The presenter speaks on any topic they find fascinating. 

Church Committees

One match about to light another

Many committees share the lay leadership of the church. Together with staff, committees lead social justice work, worship arts, and governance. Find out when committees meet in our calendar and get involved!
