We are living in turbulent times. What would it mean for us if we were to view this an invitation….an invitation to better know ourselves and, by extension, others? We will explore how accepting this invitation can lead to a greater sense of meaning, purpose, connection, and balance.

At First UU, I have found an institution which does not pelt me with answers to existential questions, but which provides me opportunities to seek answers to them in a community of open-minded people as well as ways to pursue social justice in the larger community.
As a college student I came to First UU in search of a more liberal church. Our beautiful rose window which honors all religions of the world brought tears to my eyes and I realized that I had found my spiritual home. This spring my wife and I celebrate 50 fruitful years of membership here. We are proud and blessed to be a part of this loving and supportive community.

I like going to First UU because I know everyone there and they are friendly. I know the building well so I don't get lost and it is fun to play hide and seek. My RE class is small without too many kids so I feel like I can get to know them well. There is a time in the service when the kids go up front to hear a story, I enjoy listening to the stories. I would recommend First UU to other kids because it is a fun place.
