mission statement circle

We are a community of caring people engaged in the pursuit of truth and meaning through spiritual, intellectual, and emotional growth. At First Universalist, we seek common ground while honoring each individual’s unique stance.

We embrace a rich diversity of personal theologies and strive to know ourselves, one another, and that which we hold sacred through connective and supportive fellowship, creative worship services, and works of faith and justice. Our faith includes people of every ethnicity, race, age, social background, ability, political affiliation, family structure, gender, and sexual/romantic orientation. You are welcome here.

Our building is fully accessible with ramps, an elevator, and accessible parking spaces. We have assisted listening devices available during the service. We provide announcements in writing, spoken aloud, and projected during the beginning of worship. It is our goal to create a space that meets all of our diverse needs.

A Welcoming Congregation

The First Universalist Church of Yarmouth is a certified Welcoming Congregation. We are proud to be a faith community that has officially included and welcomed members of the LGBTQ community since the inception of the modern-day equality movement begun by the Stonewall Riots. UU ministers have been performing commitment ceremonies since the mid-1980s and can now joyously officiate legal marriage ceremonies between partners of any gender.

Anti-Racist

The First Universalist Church of Yarmouth is committed to ending racism and to being an anti-racist organization. As Unitarian Universalists, our dedication to global justice, equity, and dignity leads us to join hands across lines of race, class, age, and geography and work for an end to the injustices faced by Black people in our communities, so that every person is treated equally under the law and has a fair chance at life.
