Explore. Embrace. Engage.
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.
Connect with Us
A great way to connect with us at First Universalist is to come to a Sunday service (in person or online!). To learn more about events happening at First U, you can sign up for our e-newsletter, Channels, to receive information about worship services, events, fundraisers, children and youth programming, social justice initiatives, and more. If you’re new to First U, please also check out our New? Start Here! guide.
Worship Services are held on Sundays during the school year, September through June. We also are holding Vespers services on Wednesdays. Currently, all of our services are happening live, in person, in our sanctuary, being broadcast on Zoom, and recorded and posted on YouTube. You can see previously recorded services or check out what’s coming up this Sunday.
Our building is fully accessible with ramps, an elevator, and accessible parking spaces. We have assisted listening devices available during the service. If you have additional accessibility needs, please contact us. We provide announcements in print, via email, and spoken aloud at the beginning of services. 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.
The First Universalist Church of Yarmouth is committed 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, Indigenous, and other People of Color in our communities, so that every person is treated equally under the law and has a fair chance at life.
