We remember that we are more more than a building.  Our church, First UU of Columbus is a vibrant community that seeks connection.  Please join us in person (as available) or online as we grow in connection and share our experiences and stories.  Through Worship Services (in person and online streaming every Sunday at 10) to our community chats & social opportunities on Zoom, facebook discussions, classes, meetings and education, we hope you’ll continue to connect and make new friends as well.

Be well, we look forward to seeing you all in person (or online) and look forward to connecting

 

Online Meetings & Groups

Keep up your connections!  We recommend keeping your same time so the transition points will be easier.

Please contact Kelli McNeal or Rev. Marian to set up Zoom meetings for your groups.  We have Zoom Pro accounts that allow longer meeting times.  Let us know if you want your online meeting publicized through church communications.

 


At any time, but especially during the severe social restrictions placed on us because of the pandemic, normal and important human interactions have often been hard to maintain.  First UU wants to extend its love and support to the people who call us their church home.  To this end, our Caring and Pastoral Teams can help those in our church community who may feel vulnerable, lonely, or just in need of more human connection.

If you are in need of a call, contact from a minister or other pastoral support, please fill out our Joys & Sorrows Form.

If this form doesn’t work for you, contact the church office at 614-267-4946 or the Pastoral Team Council at PTC@firstuucolumbus.org.


Giving

It is a blessing to give and to receive.
Please keep up your generous giving. This crisis is affecting many in our community with some First UUers already losing their jobs. Many others are working shorter hours or are on furlough. For those who can, please help us help each other.

Of course, we still need to keep everything else going as well. We will keep our building cared for;  we will pay our staff, including part-timers so they won’t lose pay during this time. This is living our values right here at home.

You can give online with credit card here (LINK). You can use ACH bank transfer (contact joev@firstuucolumbus.org to setup), use your bank’s bill pay to send to First UU or mail a check.

You can also text to give at 614-879-1480. Its quick and easy. The first time doing this, you text ‘give’ to the number and follow the prompts to setup.  After that, text an amount to the number to donate that amount.  Adding the number to your phone’s contact list makes it easy.  Contact brian@firstuucolumbus.org if you have difficulty, but it really is quite easy.
