First Unitarian Church is a liberal, progressive religious community. We come together for support in living lives of integrity, service and love. Together we are building a beloved community that affirms a free and responsible search for truth and meaning and supports our spiritual growth. We provide a safe and caring environment for adults, children and youth to come and learn about themselves and the world around us. We provide a community that encourages outreach, growth and deep knowing. For we all yearn, as author and educator Parker Palmer says, “to know as we are known.” Read more…
SOUL MATTERS THEMES 2020
In 2020, we will be continuing our “Soul Matters” program, a thematic program of worship, small group ministry, and RE, which gives us a monthly focus and interactive resources. I encourage people to take home the packets, which can be found in the parish hall, to engage with the monthly topic, engage in conversation, or download the playlist for Spotify. You can visit the Facebook page here to find out more and engage with other congregations who are following the program: https://www.facebook.com/soulmatterssharingcircle/

FREDERICK DOUGLASS READ-A-THON

THERE WILL BE NO SERVICE ON MARCH 15
The annual NB half-marathon is always wonderful to host as a city, but terrible to try and have a Sunday service in the middle of. People were glad we decided to cancel last year and we will do so again. If there are those in the congregation within walking distance who’d like to open the church for visitors, however, we’d still like to be open and hospitable to the neighborhood and visitors. Talk to Karen if you’d like to help that day.
