Winter Weather Information

Click here for Current Weather Conditions

If a decision is made to cancel or postpone meetings, events or church services due to inclement weather, this will be communicated here and through our church-wide email list. Cancellation decisions are dictated both by the timing and severity of weather conditions. We will close for City of Columbus Level 2 weather emergencies.  Most often, however, the church will be open for services as planned regardless of the weather.

If you are cancelling a meeting, let your folks know as soon as possible and email to let us know.

We encourage you to be safe and to use your best judgement when deciding whether or not to come to church services or activities during extreme winter weather events.

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

An activist, sometimes in compassion to correct inequities, sometimes in concern, seeking alleviation of outright wrongs, my spirituality was always a part of my activism; however, as one alone. This pursuit was within a mainline denomination. Now, as a retired widower, Unitarian/Universalism fits me extremely well.  From within the congregation, among fellow members/friends, I multiply my activism, my compassion.
