Come in the door at end of the ramp and quietly enter the sanctuary.  You can sit in a chair or bring a cushion to meditate on. All are welcome to stay afterwards for a check in about our meditation experience and practice. Contact: Rev. Geoff Rimositis, GRimositis@Gmail.com

Phoenix Rising From the Ashes

Celebrating 20 Years of Surviving the Fire, and Launching our 150th Anniversary Year

Firefighters and city officials, generous donors and church leaders return to First Unitarian so that we can honor the courage, strength, and determination that allowed this community to survive a devastating six-alarm fire on October 16, 1995. Fire engines will be parked outside the church, and we’ll have an informal party for the whole neighborhood in St. James Park starting around 12:30 p.m.

Want to help make this celebration memorable for us and the wider community? Please contact Dana Spinney, Office Manager, to add your name to the volunteer list: fucsjoffice@gmail.com.
