First UU Columbus

A Welcoming Congregation

Wednesday, January 16, 2019


First Unitarian Universalist Church of Columbus is a place where people on a variety of spiritual paths come together to grow in religious depth.

Our congregation lifts up our lives within community so that we may feel ourselves more deeply rooted and connected to our earth and the wider circle of beings.  We are empowered by our commitments to greater loving, wider justice and deeper happiness.

Please join us as we create community, grow in spirituality, practice charity and work for social justice. We welcome you in your struggles, your doubts and your dreams.

Elevator Speeches from First UU members

The Unitarians believe in one God, not the trinity. The Universalists believe that salvation is universal. The two merged in 1961. We are known for welcoming LGBTQ individuals, families, and communities. We perform union ceremonies and marriages for couples regardless of gender. There is often some truth in humor. On Prairie Home Companion, Garrison Keeler often pokes fun at UUs. Listen and laugh along!
