This will be the last Sunday service led by Elizabeth Mount in their role as our Ministerial Intern. We are grateful to Elizabeth for their two years of good service, and we are honored to have walked with them on this part of their journey to becoming a minister.

Beloved Community Offering: supporting our church and the work of its ministries.
Monthly Worship Theme
A People of Creativity
Peggy Taylor wrote, “Creativity is our ability to dream things up and make them happen.”
Both the dreaming and the doing are equally important. After dreaming up an idea, what is required to see it through? When we summon the courage to risk failure, the perseverance to get through the hard times, the openness to accept help from others, and the determination to ignore self-doubt, then we are able to turn our dreams into realities.
Join our Sunday services in May as we explore what it means to be a People of Creativity, both as individuals and as a community.
A just and loving world needs Unitarian Universalism. It needs our gifts of labor, love, and money. Without these, our vision can neither go out into the world, nor help to change it.
Coming of Age Service and Congregational Meeting
Sunday, May 20, 9:15 a.m.
Each year our youth in the Coming of Age (COA) Class (7th & 8th Grade) lead this service, performing the music and sharing their Credos, or personal belief statements, with the congregation. Following the service, all are invited to the “COA Salon” to chat with the youth. After the COA Salon, we will convene the Spring Congregational Meeting at 10:45 a.m. The day will conclude with an end of year Teacher Appreciation Luncheon at noon, hosting by our Faith Formation and Religious Education team. We hope you can join us for this momentous day!

Exploring Our Call to Sanctuary
We have been active supporters of the Metro Denver Sanctuary Coalition since its founding in 2014. We are currently going through a church-wide process of carefully considering in what ways we will deepen our commitment to Sanctuary and our support for immigrant activists.
The music program at First Universalist Church seeks to enrich and enhance our experience of spirituality, community, and creative service through music.
Do you sing or play an instrument? We welcome new participants in our choirs and other musical ensembles. We’d love to hear from you!
Compassion in Action
We are committed to social justice. Each month, we give all but one of our Sunday Offerings to non-profit organizations in our community doing work that aligns with our values.
We provide an ongoing program of diverse adult religious education offerings, which will engage spiritual, emotional, intellectual, and ethical aspects of personal growth of adults of all ages, from young adults to seniors.
Loving each other
We support each other in times of need, celebrate with each other in times of joy, and practice radical hospitality, welcoming everyone with open hearts and open minds.
Seeking the truth in love
We teach and learn from each other, from the youngest to the oldest among us. We encourage, support and nourish each other on our personal paths to understanding.
