Our congregation lifts up our lives within community so that we may feel ourselves more deeply rooted, and empowered in our transforming commitments of greater loving, wider justice and deeper happiness.
Please join us as we create community, grow in spirituality, practice charity and strive for Social Justice. We welcome you in your struggles, your doubts and your dreams.

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,
The UU Church is the best place for atheists, agnostics and humanists to freely explore, with others, ideas about God or other supreme entities. Though diverse in beliefs, we UU’s hold certain principles in common. We seek knowledge in freedom, promote justice with wisdom, practice compassion for others, and possess a passion for democratic social structures and behaviors. All Folks are welcome here and all ideas are valued here. Verily, I say to thee: It is the place to be! Dotte Turner
