Welcome to Second Unitarian Church!

We are a vibrant Unitarian Universalist community, supporting one another in our spiritual journeys and living out our values in the world. Unified by our covenant and grounded in our tradition of religious freedom, we come together in worship, fellowship, and service.

At Second Unitarian Church, you are encouraged to join with others to explore the big questions and make a difference in the world. Everyone is invited, regardless of race, age, or sexual orientation. We look forward to meeting you.

Our Sunday service begins at 10:30am. Adults and children gather together in the sanctuary for the first part of the service; we sing the children and teachers out to their classrooms at 10:45am. We also offer occasional intergenerational worship services that allow the whole community to worship together. You are invited to stay after the service for refreshments and conversation.

Our Wednesday evening Vespers service is currently on hiatus.
