What's Going On

The Chestnut St. Bridge Closing in July

Year-long construction begins on the Chestnut St. Bridge in mid-July. Plan your travels accordingly. More information can be found on the website linked 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.



Upcoming Summer Services

Sunday services (June-August) will be at 10am in the air-conditioned Parish Room. Use the side entrance on Van Pelt Street.

July 14. Seeing Through Words and Sounds (Crystal Mann)
Join us for a morning of poetry and song about all things human and beyond.
Crystal is seminary graduate & DMV native that loves to cook vegan food while her toddler, Josiah, dances to the beat of every song.

July 21. The Power of Sharing Your STORY (Rev. Zemoria Brandon)
We all have a story to tell. Each story is a unique representation of our personal growth through life’s challenges and lessons learned. What we may not realize is how the power of sharing our stories can reveal, heal, and transform us, as well as others. Join us for a time of story-telling through uplifting music, sacred dance, spoken word and poetry.
Rev. Zemoria Brandon has been a member of the First Unitarian Church since September, 2011. She is an ordained interfaith minister, administrator/ social worker, Reiki Master, community advocate; mother and grandmother. Her interests focus on individuals and families living with sickle cell disease, interfaith projects and the African and Caribbean immigrant communities.
