About First UU

We are a member congregation of the Unitarian Universalist Association. Guided by the UUA Principles and Purposes, our mission is to live in harmony with each other and nature, and to act with peace, compassion, and justice for all.

Joys and Concerns on Sundays

Every Sunday as a community, we share Joys and Concerns to keep connected. We honor each joy or concern with a stone dropped in a shared bowl of water, representing the ripple effect in all our lives.

You may send your Joys and Concerns to the church during the week by sending them to pastoralcare@springfielduu.org.
