First UU is a welcoming congregation, a home where all of who you are is sacred, and all of who you are is welcome.
You will find us at 2434 East Battlefield, the south side of the street between Glenstone and Lone Pine.
We offer a Whole Worship service at 10:00 a.m. every Sunday, meeting in-person, on Zoom, and live-streamed on Facebook. A Reflective Service is offered all but the first Sunday of the month at 11:15. Every Sunday is different, but hymns, readings, and a meaningful message are usually included. We often have songs by our choir or a musician or singer from the congregation. We occasionally welcome special guest musicians from the community. Because each of our worship services is unique, you may want to plan to attend several services to experience the range and diversity of our congregation.
We light a candle every service. In our service, the chalice symbolizes wisdom, knowledge, and spiritual insight. The flame rising from the chalice represents the light of illumination and understanding.
You’re welcome to dress in whatever makes you comfortable. Many of our attendees wear dress-casual, and others wear jeans and t-shirts; it’s really up to you. Children should wear clothing appropriate for crafts, snacks, and occasionally playing outside.
Our church is centrally heated and cooled. We do not have an elevator, but both floors of our building are accessible from grade-level entrances. Wheelchairs are available.
Our church is family-friendly, and children are encouraged to attend the entire service. Floor seating and rockers are available. Our children’s program meets downstairs each Sunday, is fun for all ages, and full of enlightening activities. We have a staffed nursery and age-appropriate classes for children.
When you arrive, you will be cordially greeted, invited to fill out a guest card, and offered a name tag. Filling out the guest card will ensure that you are added to our newsletter mailing list.
You are invited to join us after services for coffee and conversation. Those attending online can visit with each other in Zoom breakout rooms.
