We are a progressive, theologically liberal, urban church that provides a warm and supportive sense of community. In addition to our Sunday morning worship celebrations, we offer religious education classes for children and youth ; many different ways to work for justice and compassion in the larger community ; frequent gatherings for young adults and students ; ongoing faith development opportunities for adults ; several opportunities for involvement in performing arts groups ; and many other opportunities for living a more spiritually oriented life in community with others. We have a deep commitment to social justice and human rights, and some of our partners in ministry include the Unitarian Universalist Pennsylvania Legislative Advocacy Network (UUPLAN), East End Cooperative Ministry (EECM), and the Pennsylvania Interfaith Impact Network (PIIN).
We are about to choose a new time for our Sunday service. This decision has the potential to bring us all together as a congregation on Sunday mornings, streamline the efforts of our staff and volunteers, and open up opportunities for new programming. You can learn more and cast your vote at Preference Poll: First UU Sunday Morning Service Time.
