Combating & Surviving Racism Conversation Series: Featuring Rev. Nicolas O'Rourke from POWER

Sunday, June 9, 1–3 PM; pre-registration strongly encouraged

Join us after the service for lunch and an intimate conversation with Rev. Nicolas O'Rourke from POWER as we continue to share our experiences around race and racism, and identify ways to awaken love and justice in our lives and the world. Lunch provided. Childcare available focused on an activity exploring the values of the Black Lives Matter movement. Sign-up sheets will be available on Sundays, or you can register at the link included in the E-Beacon.

Our Minister

In the Spring of 2016, we called Rev. Abbey Tennis to our congregation.

She is passionate about building multigenerational and multicultural ministries that enliven the mind, grow the heart, engage the body, feed the soul, and transform the world.

You can learn more about Rev. Abbey Tennis on her personal website here.



We Have a Lot to Celebrate on Sunday, June 16th!

Join in the celebration! What are we celebrating? Ta-da, the June 8 marriage of Rev. Abbey Tennis and Kai Lovell! Our CRE Director Shantala Thompson who, after several years of serving on the staff of First Unitarian Church, is moving on! Another inspiring church year and all that our Congregation and Staff contributed to this year!

Let's have an Extra-Special Celebratory Coffee Hour! How about bringing some plated finger foods (sweets, veggies and dip, tea sandwiches, sliced cheese), chilled soda or iced tea to church on Sunday, June 16? Extra tables will be set up in the Parish Room, so please drop off your offering before the service.

Questions or suggestions? You can email Phyllis Belk at, or Debby Schultz at,or speak to them today. A basket will be available to collect wedding cards and congratulatory greetings for Abbey and Kai.


As an official Welcoming Congregation we are inclusive towards bisexual, gay, lesbian, and transgender people.

For people with disabilities, we provide assisted listening devices, large print orders of service and hymnals. Also, our Sanctuary, Parish Room and Chapel are wheelchair accessible.
