Welcome to Family Faith Development at First Unitarian Church of Cincinnati!

If you are new to First Church, I want to extend an extra special welcome. These are difficult times and you are doing holy work. I know… I know… this sure does not feel like holy work. It feels like drudgery, like anxiety, like duty and due diligence. But, friend, who will care for the “interconnected web” if not you? What better time to “learn together,” than now? And, how will our children “build a fair and peaceful world,” if we don’t provide them with a foundation upon which to build? Indeed, you are your child's greatest teacher, and your ministry is needed now, more than ever. I am thankful you are here. Know that we at First Church are committed to partnering with you, to offer programming that not only fits into your busy schedule but that eases your burden as well.

Our first attempt at an all-age, in-person social gathering since the pandemic began, Masquerade is an outdoor event that will take place in our parking lot on Saturday, October, 10, 2020 from 4:00 PM to 5:30 PM.  You are invited to dress in your finest formal wear, cosplay outfit, or dress up clothes, and pack for a tailgate.  And, don't forget your face masks - both decorative and practical.  If you feel so inclined, we invite you to also bring a donation of face masks (to go to our IHN families).  You can learn more about this event, including the safety precautions we are taking, by reading the description at the top of this program's registration form.  Just click the flyer below.
