First Unitarian Universalist Church of Columbus is a place where people on a variety of spiritual paths come together to grow in religious depth.
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.
As a "Welcoming Congregation", we have formalized our commitment to be inclusive and expressive of the concerns of bisexual, gay, lesbian, and/or transgender persons at every level of congregational life.
