This Sunday

“The End of the World as We Know It”

In human history, there are strong reoccurring stories predicting the end of the world, many in dramatic apocalyptic fiery stages of redemption and revenge.  Our Theme of the Month is Myth and Symbols; as we face uncertain times, what stories and myths can help us now?  

The 8th Principle

8th Principle logo Learn everything there is to know about the proposed 8th Principle, including comments from church members about why it is important. This special page also includes book and video resources.

Covid-19 Update

First Unitarian Church Ellsworth Our services are now open to a limited number of people with Covid-19 restrictions. All attending must follow Covid-19 protocol

Revised Pledging Process

This year, we are assigning you a pledge amount that takes your pledge from the previous year and increases it by 3.5%. You can revise your pledge, or do nothing and the “rollover” pledge will take effect. Learn more about the pledging change or make your 2023 pledge here.
