This Sunday kicks off our August theme of "Widening the Circle". Rev. D. Scott Cooper examines how the updated lyrics of the folk hymn "What Wondrous Love" reflect the theology of our Unitarian and Universalist forebears, and suggest ways that we can be “Widening the Circle”.
As we close our monthly theme "Gather the Spirit," Dr. Bossen reflects on what is transient and what is permanent about the human condition and how, despite the odds, we might yet build a better world.

Astonishing and alarming events have unfolded in Washington this afternoon and evening. Treasonous actors stormed, vandalized, and broke into the U.S. Capitol, temporarily stopping the electoral vote. Because of the events of the day, our Senior Minister, the Rev. Dr. Colin Bossen has recorded this Prayer for Democracy. Please join him and your fellow congregants in praying for our country.
Today First Church is offering a prayer for the election. It is an opportunity for everybody to find their center and join in community, albeit online. We invite you to join us!
