sslFirst Unitarian Church is a liberal, progressive religious community. We come together for support in following the UU Path of Love, Freedom and Service. These are central to our beliefs and our way of living. We provide a safe and caring environment for adults, children and youth to come and learn about themselves and the world around them. We provide a community that encourages outreach, growth and deep knowing. For we all yearn, as author and educator Parker Palmer says, “to know as we are known.”

Our next RESTORATIVE JUSTICE Community Forum
Sunday APRIL 27th 4-6 pm at Mt Carmel Church 230 Bonny St New Bedford
Coming up this Sunday, April 27th: 

Many Paths, One Faith-Unitarian Universalism embraces elements of many spiritual paths and teachings. We are in some ways a hybrid, and in others ways a totally new approach to engaging ones spiritual journey. How can we expand the circle of our faith and stand on the side of love with those who travel a very different path? How can we engage with others and work with them to find common ground?
