Sunday Service: 
A Prayer and a Promise

10/1/23 at 10:30am

In a world that demands so much from us, how do we discern which opportunities to embrace and which to set aside? Together we will explore how we offer our energy as individuals and as members of a greater human community.

Speaker: Rev. Margaret Weis

This will be a hybrid service, with the in-person portion being held in the sanctuary of First Universalist, and the virtual portion being held over Zoom.

Masking in the First Universalist church building is now optional, please respect distancing requests by fellow attendees. A mask-required section of the sanctuary is designated for those preferring to stay masked.

Hybrid Fall Leadership Assembly 

The Board of Trustees of the First Universalist Church invites you to join us for a hybrid fall Leadership Assembly. We especially encourage committee chairs and other leaders to attend, but everyone is invited!


Please come if you volunteer in any capacity in the church, or if you are just interested in learning more about what we’re all up to. We will share information about what's going on in different areas of church life, and to reflect on the intentions we set for ourselves based on discussions at Leadership Assembly last year.


We will also be looking ahead at the calendar for the rest of the church year. You can join us in person at church, or online via Zoom. If you plan to attend, please RSVP hat the link below and let us know if you plan to participate in person or online.
