Welcome to The First Church in Belmont, Unitarian Universalist. We are a mid-sized church of almost 400 families and individuals. From September through early June, we offer two worship services each Sunday at 9:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m., along with religious education classes for children (preschool through teen). Child care is available for younger children. On certain specified Sundays, announced in advance, there are changes in the schedule. Our social hour after each service is a wonderful way to meet people; our members make a special effort to greet visitors and new parishioners. During the summer, June 15 to September 2, there is a lay-led service at 9:30 a.m. Child care is available during the summer. .

(If you wish, bring a small picture of someone who has died to hold during the service.)
In the northern hemisphere, the days that cluster around November 1 are in several cultures the time for remembering the departed, but are also celebrated as times of at least some fear and the facing of fear. In such festivals as Samhain, Dia de los Muertos, Halloween and All Souls Day we remember those of our loved ones who have gone on to death and we celebrate their continued presence in our lives through the many ways they touched and changed us.
The flowers this Sunday
are given by Richard and Jean Lyon in celebration of family and friends.
