First Unitarian Society tries to provide a welcoming environment for all ages and our congregation features a wonderful mix of young families, empty-nesters, youth, and elders. Support and programming tailored to each age group is routinely available, but we also strongly encourage all ages to participate in inter-generational worship, educational, and social events. A faith community such as First Unitarian Society is one of the few places in our contemporary age-segregated culture where young and old can connect in appreciation and mutual respect.
Many older adults continue to participate actively in the life of the larger congregation. They are some of our most enthusiastic life-long learners and committed volunteers. We also know that the interests and concerns of elders are unique and we make an effort to address these as well.
