Explore, Embrace, Engage
At First Universalist Church our mission is to Explore our faith, Embrace our community, and Engage in our world as spiritual seekers. You are welcome here!
You Really Are Welcome Here
Our faith includes people of every ethnicity, race, age, social background, ability, political affiliation, family structure, gender, and sexual/romantic orientation. We are a diverse group who come together through shared values like caring for one another and our planet.
We welcome your questions. We look forward to meeting you and helping you find what you seek. Spiritual seekers are always welcome! Rather than having a written creed, we explore together different theological ideas and each chart our own spiritual path.
What to Know About Sunday Services
You are invited to join us in worship (in person or online) and in conversation at fellowship hour following the service.
- Arrival. The church has a small parking lot, but plenty of on-street parking is available. You may enter directly into the Sanctuary through the double doors facing Main Street. Accessible entries are off the parking lot and off ‘the wing’ which will bring you to the elevator. At the Sanctuary greeters will answer questions regarding the service, religious education, child care, building amenities and church activities, and can provide you with brochures and information regarding Unitarian Universalism if you would like. You will be invited to fill out and wear a name tag.
- Nursery care is available for infants, toddlers, and younger children. The nursery is located down the hallway at the front of the Sanctuary.
- Sunday services begin at 10:30 am and include words, music, meditation, and more. Services may be quite varied and we invite
visitors to attend a few services (in person or online) to gain a fuller impression of the rich diversity of our faith community.
- Children in kindergarten through sixth grade participate in the first portion of the service through our Time for Wonder and then are invited to leave together with their teachers for Children’s Chapel.
- Fellowship. On most Sundays we have social time in our Gathering Room, located just below the Sanctuary for coffee and tea, refreshments and conversation.
- What to Wear. Most members dress casually but neatly, while others prefer to dress up. You may wear whatever seems comfortable for you.
