DID YOU KNOW?
You could start off the church year as a new member of First Universalist!

It's not only the Sanctuary and Gathering Room that have been under construction
this Summer: our Library is getting a
makeover, too. We've donated, consolidated, and a grand organizational scheme is in the works - complete with an online catalogue!

FAITH IN ACTION   
Our inspirational senior youth have just returned from their mission trip to Transylvania where they were living out their faith.

You, too, can work towards peace, liberty, and justice for all (shout out to the 6th Principle!) with other members of our Beloved Community. 

Volunteers are needed for our monthly shift at the Preble Street Soup Kitchen. Please contact Phyllis Chinlund at  pchinlund@gmail.com



First Universalist's joint New Mainer Compassionate Housing Initiative is searching for hosts and support contacts. Please email Ashley Brookes
