Worship Celebrations - Sundays at 10:30 am


 Emily Pinkerton and the Music and the Arts Council

 We are blessed with a wealth of music talent here at First Unitarian Church! This morning, many of our musicians will be joining together to present a "mostly music" worship celebration with music that reflects the spiritual themes of the holiday season. Come and be uplifted and inspired through music.

Religious Education 

Children and youth begin in the sanctuary for the first 15-20 min or so of the worship service.
