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.

Guy Fawkes Day is a British holiday celebrated on November 5. Fawkes intended to blow up Parliament, was found out, arrested and executed; the holiday celebrates this. Was the plan of Fawkes an act of terrorism; was it a justified action by and for an oppressed minority; was it both? Sneak preview: We human beings tend to use a double standard in our judgments. If there is an ultimate standard, whether Divine, Cosmic or Human, a standard by which my life is judged, how do I want it applied to me?
The flowers this Sunday
