Our Sanctuary CandlesWorship is the heart of our life together at First Church. We gather at 10:00 on Sunday mornings to sing and pray together, to share our joys and sorrows, to sit in silent meditation or to reflect on our lives and the movement of the Spirit within and among us.

Worship at First Church brings together traditional and contemporary elements from many spiritual traditions. Readings, prayers, rituals and music are often Christian; at the same time we celebrate the openness of Unitarian Universalism by incorporating rituals and readings from many sacred traditions and the best of contemporary poetry.

Our music is an eclectic blend of traditional hymns, classical music, jazz, folk and secular songs, and Taize chant. We are blessed with a magnificent 1869 Simmons organ, a vintage AB Chase grand piano, and a talented musician, Kallin Johnson, who is a master of both instruments.

As we say at the beginning of every worship service at First Church,
“Whoever you are, wherever you find yourself on life’s journey, we welcome you here!”
