At some point in your faith journey, you may begin to feel you would like to be more than a guest here at First Unitarian Church. You may feel that this has become your spiritual home, a community with whom you share values, a place to raise your children, a hub for involvement in social justice, a support in time of need, a place to make connections and have fun.
