First Unitarian Church of Philadelphia ~ Welcome home!

Committees and Teams

We are moving all church-related meetings to Zoom.  If you typically host a meeting for the church at which neither Abbey nor Hannah is present, please be in touch so we can help get you set up.  Questions about Zoom? Instructions can be found here.

Adult Spiritual Development 
The Adult Spiritual Development Ministry Team works with the congregation and staff to create programming that enlivens and inspires our spirits, including classes, workshops, book groups, and other special events for the community.

Small Group Ministries
Small Group Ministries are groups of ~10 congregants who gather monthly throughout the year to reflect on spiritual issues in our lives and the world. Groups covenant to support each other, speak from the heart and mind, and to care for each other, including honoring everyone's confidentiality. If you are looking for a way of deepening your own spirit and building meaningful relationships with others at First Unitarian Church, sign up!

Welcoming and Membership Ministries

Membership Ministry Team
The Membership Ministry Team supports First Unitarian Church’s mission by cultivating radical welcome and warmth in our path to membership and our commitment to serving new and longtime members in connecting with one another and the larger congregational community.  Coffee hour, New Member Ceremonies, and Ushers and Greeters are just some of the important and vital ministries of this team.

Circle Suppers
Circle Suppers are groups of 8-12 people who like to eat and have fun at each other's homes once a month, with each participant taking a turn to host during the church year. All are welcome, whether you’re a newcomer or long-timer to the church! We organize groups to make sure all needs can be met, regardless physical ability, dietary restrictions, and whether your home has space to host. Questions? Contact the coordinators!
