Ours is an informal and theologically inclusive congregation. We hope that no matter where you are in your spiritual journey, you will feel comfortable among us. Services are held on Sundays at 9 and 11:00 a.m., and on Saturdays at 4:30 p.m. from September through May. During the summer, one service is held on Sundays at 10 a.m. in the Atrium Auditorium.
At First Unitarian Society we treat worship as an occasion to focus on questions worthy of consideration and deeper deliberation. We strive to do this not only through reflective sermons, but also through music, poetry, stories, and meditations that tie together the weekly theme. Worship also provides an opportunity to come together to celebrate and restore our sense of community while preparing us for greater service to the world.
Unitarian Universalism is not a confessional religion, which means there are no creeds or doctrines. Ministers draw from the wisdom of sacred and secular traditions, often alluding to current events and challenging listeners to think and reflect more deeply. It is always our intention to stimulate thinking, not to tell listeners what they ought to think. Read more about the elements of worship you might encounter at FUS.
We offer religious education classes for children during the service from September to May. During the Summer months, kids enjoy a drop-in Summer Fun program. Childcare is always provided for infants and toddlers. For families who’d prefer a little extra room to roam during services, we have a soundproof Baby Haven that allows parents to hear and see the service while providing an opportunity for little ones to explore.
After the service, attendees are invited to stay and enjoy a cup of coffee while catching up with friends, making new connections, and discovering ways to get more involved in our common life.
