Winter Weather Information

Click here for Current Weather Conditions

If a decision is made to cancel or postpone meetings, events or church services due to inclement weather, this will be communicated here and through our church-wide email list. Cancellation decisions are dictated both by the timing and severity of weather conditions. We will close for City of Columbus Level 2 weather emergencies.  Most often, however, the church will be open for services as planned regardless of the weather.

If you are cancelling a meeting, let your folks know as soon as possible and email office@firstuucolumbus.org to let us know.

We encourage you to be safe and to use your best judgement when deciding whether or not to come to church services or activities during extreme winter weather events.

Elevator Speeches from First UU members

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.
