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.
