Members and friends of the First Unitarian Universalist Church have many reasons for being part of this religious community. Often people say they come for their children, but end up staying for themselves. Some just love to sing and quickly find their place in the choir. Others seek spiritual or personal inspiration for daily living, while still others want to add their passion for social or environmental justice causes we support. Some members are retired and may choose to become quite deeply involved in one or more of the Fellowship’s many activities.

We encourage your involvement in whatever best fits your interests. Explore some of the many opportunities to serve that will nurture your personal and spiritual growth and serve the congregation and wider community. Fill out the interest form below for more information, download our Get Involved Booklet, or contact the Coordinator of Congregational Life.
