At First Church, we recognize major life passages through services of child dedication, weddings and services of union, and memorial services.
Services of Child Dedication are usually performed by our ministers during a Sunday morning worship service, for children aged three and under. Families are encouraged to add readings or gifts that will make the service meaningful for them. A service is specially written for each family. Due to the vacancy of our settled ministry, other Officiates will be welcomed or other UU Clergy may be recommended.
Weddings and Services of Union
At First Church we rejoice in the union of all loving couples. Our sanctuary offers a lovely setting for services, although our minister sometimes joins couples in private homes or outdoor ceremonies. If the service is held at the church there are a variety of arrangements that need to be made. It is best to schedule your wedding date six months in advance to ensure the availability of the sanctuary. Due to the number of requests, not all services for non-members can be accommodated. Please refer to our Rentals page for more information. Due to the vacancy of our settled ministry, other Officiates will be welcomed or other UU Clergy may be recommended.
The death of a loved one is a time of powerful emotions and change. Memorial services are a great comfort. At First Church we honor those who have died with a celebration of life, a service that shares their life and meaning. Careful attention is given to pastoral care and each unique expression of grief. Loved ones are encouraged to choose meaningful readings and music. Eulogies are specially written for each person. Due to the vacancy of our settled ministry, other Officiates will be welcomed or other UU Clergy may be recommended.
