How We Worship

candles4
The best way to learn about First UU is by visiting us on a Sunday morning. Worship begins at 11 am and lasts about an hour. Services usually include instrumental music ranging from classical to folk and even jazz to rock! The music accompanies elements of the service and sometimes it is the focus, as with songs by our 45-voice choir. During the service, we include inspirational readings, meditations and prayers.

We have a time for words for all ages, where children come forward for a story or participate in a skit. We then sing them out to the playground. We also dedicate a time for Joys and Sorrows by silently coming forward and lighting candles. We sing several hymns together, listen to a challenging sermon and then close our services by taking time to greet one another.

You are welcome to “come as you are.” There is no dress code at our church. People wear what they are most comfortable in, from “Sunday Best” to shorts and sandals and everything in between.

A caring nursery is available for the youngest among us, and if you’d prefer your baby to stay with you, our “wiggle room” lets you see and hear the service while caring for your children.

While you’re here, be sure to stop by the Welcome Table inside the main doors. It’s a great place to get your questions answered and to learn more about the wider activities and opportunities of this community.

One thing is certain: whoever you are, wherever you are on your journey, you will be welcome at First UU.
