First Universalist holds worship services at 10:30 am on Sundays, September – June.

Please join us in exploring a variety of spiritual practices, participating in ceremonies and traditions that ground us, sharing in music that moves us, experiencing sermons that encourage us to question, and coming together based on a belief that we must act together to support justice and peace in our world.


A GOOD SENSE OF DIRECTION with Rev. Hillary Collins-Gilpatrick, Minister, and Sam Chandler, Music Director

Moving forward during our month of “Becoming,” we continue to explore the liminal space between hope and grief. Last week Rev. Hillary encouraged us to act from this in-between place, ok – so what’s our first step?

Worship Theme

Our worship theme for April is Becoming – and it is also about unbecoming, as Albert Schweitzer wrote: “The path of awakening is not about becoming who you are. Rather it is about unbecoming who you are not.” This becoming, and unbecoming, is a lifelong journey, a path we walk every day, over and over. When we take this journey of becoming and unbecoming together, it may mean helping each other to hold steady and persevere or it may mean helping each other to find and take the exit ramps.
