Worship Online With Us

During the COVID-19 outbreak of Spring 2020, in-person worship services at First Unitarian Church are suspended. We will offer a video service via YouTube Live every Sunday morning at 10:30. Services last about 30 minutes and are appropriate for all ages, with music, prayer, a story, and a pastoral message. The prelude begins at 10:15.

We are more than the sum of our parts, even when we can't be in the same place at the same time. Our many spirits shine together to make one light of justice and love.
