Whoever you are. Whomever you love. Wherever you are in your search for truth and meaning. You are welcome at the UUFP.
Love Lives Here!
Thank you for choosing to worship with us, whether in person or online. We hope you feel welcome and celebrated as a newcomer to our community of caring.
UUFP is an inclusive and diverse liberal religious community that embraces people of many beliefs, sexual orientations and abilities (both visible and invisible). You never have to check your doubts, questions, or curiosity at the door. We support independent thought and a free, responsible search for truth and meaning.
"Love is the doctrine of this church,
The quest of truth is its sacrament,
And service is its prayer.
To dwell together in peace,
To seek knowledge in freedom,
To serve humankind in fellowship...
Thus, do we covenant with each other."
– Blake Covenant, adapted
Getting to Know Each Other
For some, visiting new places is done with ease. They want and even expect folks to approach and engage them. Others are more comfortable as initial observers “taking it all in”; they appreciate more time and space when adjusting to a new environment.
We want you to feel welcome at your own pace. We offer several ways to learn more about who we are, what we embrace, and what we do. In the meantime, we'll extend a warm invitation and look forward to building healthy relationships in a community we hope will become your new spiritual home!
- Join us online or in person for Sunday worship or Adult Forum.
- Enjoy our meet-and-greet times before and after service.
- Attend one of our Beloved Community Wednesdays or join a group.
- Check out the Events Calendar for program details and Zoom links.
- Learn more about the living tradition of Unitarian Universalism.
Visiting for the First Time
If you're visiting in person for the first time, please stop by the Welcome Stand in the church foyer to pick up a welcome packet and a name tag. Our greeters will be wearing white stoles. Don't worry about standing out with your name tag; at UUFP, we all wear name tags! Feel free to list your preferred pronouns on your name tag, too. We won't embarrass you by making you stand up and introduce yourself.
While you're waiting for worship to start, help yourself to some coffee and snacks in the kitchen area. We have "I'm new here!" coffee mugs if you wish to use one. Expect a few of our friendly folks to introduce themselves.
If you visit on a day when we're having a potluck or Soup Social, you and your family are warmly invited to stay after worship and eat with us!
If you have children and want them to participate in our nursery or children's RE classes, be sure to fill out their visitor card at the Welcome Stand so staff can know their name, allergies, and how to contact you if needed. Your children are also welcome to stay in the Sanctuary with you during worship—or you can go to class with them!
Our bathrooms are currently single use and gender neutral, and our nursery is equipped with a baby changing station you can use anytime. Please let one of our greeters know if you have questions or need assistance with anything. We want you to feel comfortable and welcome!
