Mystery and Promise in the Darkest Night

Solstice is the longest night of the year, and shortest day. The dark of winter can be a place for mystery and a place of preparing for the return of the light. Join us for a solstice themed service and sermon

Our Stories

Honesty is important to me. Honesty with those around me, but more importantly, with myself.  What I truly appreciate about First UU is that I am not only encouraged to honestly develop my own spiritual beliefs, I am supported in doing so. No one is telling me what to believe. Instead, inspiration has been provided from diverse perspectives from the pulpit, courses, workshops, and dialog with other members and friends. For me, I am also inspired by so many of our traditional belief systems so wonderfully expressed by our wonder full chancel window!

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.

Amelia a young girl who attends First UU

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.
