Can we use our intuition to “feel things in our bones” and help us live our most authentic lives, and create safe and welcoming spaces for others?
Join us as we celebrate LGBTQ+ Pride Month and our theme of the sixth source by discussing Intuition (“the power or faculty of attaining to direct knowledge or cognition without evident rational thought and inference.”)
How do different cultures and belief systems process grief through mourning, and what have Unitarian Universalists learned from humanists about the importance of living our one life to the fullest while we’re together on Earth?
Join Rev. D. Scott Cooper for this Memorial Day weekend.
"There are symbols to inspire us to pursue justice all around us," Dr. Bossen shares with us in today's service. "We need not turn to God for such inspiration. We can turn to our ordinary experience, to our regular life, and to the regular human lives of others, for such inspiration."

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.

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!
