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-lead service at 9:30 a.m. Child care is available during the summer.

The Islamic year 1436 begins around October 25. It marks the occasion when Muhammad secretly left Mecca for Medina to accept the leadership of that city. This brought him to safety and also established the Islamic state. It is also an example of the idea that sometimes it is better to “run” and seek safety than to stand on principle.
The flowers this Sunday
are given by Kristin Phillips in loving memory of her father, Nelson E. Phillips.
