This Sunday

 “Communities, Care, & Change.”

Livestreamed at 10:30 am

In our UU communities, we commit to accept one another and to care for one another. What do these commitments require of us as a community? How can we build Beloved Communities where all are welcome and cared for?

Pittsburgh-born and bred … read more.

June is Pride month! Reach out to acquaintances, friends and family to let them know how special our church can be.
Our Share the Plate Recipient for the month of June is CeaseFirePA. We last shared the plate with CeaseFirePA in April of 2023, and several members of First Unitarian and Rev. Kate have recently lobbied in Harrisburg with CFPA, so we are already friends. Gun Violence is widespread and rising in PA: 33 people die each week by guns. Our Pittsburgh community is far from immune. CeaseFire has created a Common Agenda for legislation to end Gun Violence and does organizing and education work throughout PA to further the agenda’s goals: ~Extreme Risk Protection Order ~Lost/Stolen Gun Reporting ~Universal Background Checks ~Safe Storage of guns. For example, many community organizations (in healthcare, Veterans Services, and Faith Communities) work with CeaseFire PA to press our legislature to bring these items forward. It is a challenge, and as CeaseFire’s website tells us, NO ONE IS FREE FROM GUN VIOLENCE IN PA UNTIL WE ARE ALL SAFE.  
  Miguel Hoyos is back with us!!  Have you seen the wonderful and riotous work in the Undercroft Gallery this month?  Miguel is a master with color and his work will bring a smile to your face.  Some of it will make you laugh. Miguel, among other works, has gifted us with another wall of happy chickens, and there is a wonderful rooster in the mix. Miquel’s work will hang through the end of June..  He will have a closing reception on Sunday, June 30.  Enjoy the show!
