A Green Sanctuary at First UU?
From the Green Team: First UU is starting a journey to achieve certification as a "Green Sanctuary" under UUA criteria. The Board of Trustees has designated the church's Green Team as coordinator of this effort. All church members and organizations will be invited to participate, and the Green Team is looking for YOUR ideas and hands as we move toward a sustainable church operation.
Please help us by becoming part of this effort! Contact Tom Baillieul, Green Team Chair,
For many years, I attended services at the First UU Church. I was attracted to their message because it was one of inclusion, everyone is welcome and everyone is part of the UU family. They make no judgments. I was so impressed by the knowledge I gained about many other religions. The church encourages understanding of other beliefs and some services actually draw from other faiths. I am also drawn to the church because its members don't just talk about injustice in the world, they actually form social action groups who pursue justice. When the First UU church established an Animal Ministry, I immediately joined because they had found my passion. Karen Squires
