This month’s Special Plate collection is for the Carter Social Justice Fund. On Carter Social Justice Sunday, we ask the Congregation to contribute to the fund.

The fund provides support to two organizations each year. In January, members of the congregation submit suggestions of organizations to be supported. This year Lighthouse Youth Services and Cincinnati Interfaith Workers Coalition have been selected to receive one thousand dollars each.

In addition, the fund supports the work of our focus groups. For example, The Earth Care Team helped the congregation recycle batteries. The fund reimbursed them for the cost. It also paid for postcards and stamps for Advocacy during the vote on reproductive rights.

To donate to Share the Plate (STP), please designate “STP April” on your online donations or make checks payable to First Unitarian Church of Cincinnati with “STP April” in the memo line.

Donations of all types (STP, pledge, or general gifts) may be made on our website, https://firstuu.com/give-now/ or through these additional methods: https://firstuu.com/social-justice/give/. Members may also donate through the Breeze online member system.

All are welcome to join our services.   We gather every Sunday at 10:00 a.m.

We are a caring Unitarian Universalist community in the centrally located Avondale neighborhood of Cincinnati. We meet in a warm and graceful building, circa 1889, for worship services that nourish spiritual growth and learning throughout life. A self-governed congregation in good standing with the Unitarian Universalist Association, we are an active force for positive change through a variety of activities that serve our members and our community. 

If you are a member here, an internet traveler or a spiritual searcher, if you are experiencing hard times and need a hand up or are a social justice advocate, come to First Church and share in the celebration of life’s journey. We cherish human diversity, the differences in sex, age, race, ethnicity, national origin, range of abilities, sexual orientation, gender identity, financial means, education, theology and political perspective. These values apply to all of the activities of our Congregation.
