First UU is committed to our environment. As part of our recent Green and Growing capital campaign, we made many building improvements.

One example is the addition of a medium sized solar array providing clean, renewable energy right here at First UU!

Renewable energy such as solar will be necessary to address climate change as it represents a reduction in our ‘carbon footprint’, mainly by offsetting coal-burning energy production here in this region.

As a visible commitment to our Unitarian Universalist 7th Principle (respect for the interdependent web of all existence), this is a tangible and concrete way that we can live out our faith’s values and contribute to the healing of our larger world.
