Our Congregation is dedicated to the proposition that behind all our differences and beneath all our diversity, there is a unity that makes us one; and binds us forever together in spite of time and death and the space between the stars.

Welcome!  We are so glad you are here.

Thanks for checking out the First Unitarian Society of Denver.  This church is a member of the Unitarian Universalist Association and is a Welcoming Congregation.  There is no such thing as a typical Sunday here but there are a few things common to every service.  We warmly invite everyone to join us on our spiritual journey.  This page will give you some guidelines for Sundays at FUSD.
Getting Here
We invite you to look at the map and see where we are located in the city of Denver.  First Unitarian is located in the historic neighborhood of Capitol Hill.  As an urban church parking is something of a challenge.  There is some on-street parking and on Sundays from 8:00a-1:00p the curb lane of 14th Ave. is designated by the city as available.  There is a parking lot across the street from the church and has 22 spaces reserved (evenings and weekends) for cars with the appropriate parking sticker.  They are available in the church office.  The meters on Colfax Ave. are free on Sundays.

Our services are held at 9:30a in the summer (roughly memorial day to right after labor day) and 9:30a and 11:00a the rest of the year.  The main page will always have the next sermon title and any special guests.  Our services are alive with music, poetry, dancing, singing, and just about anything else Rev. Mike Morran and the ministry staff cook up to make you think, wonder, and ask questions about our spiritual place in the world.  Come dressed as you consider comfortable.
After every service we have coffee hour in our community room.  It is a chance to meet new people, see old friends, and talk about things important to all of us.

Connections Ministry
Each Sunday our Connections Ministry is on hand to welcome all our visitors.  We understand that checking out a church can be a little intimidating and we want to make sure that your first (and every) experience is as meaningful and fulfilling as possible.
For Families with Children
First Unitarian has a vibrant Religious Exploration (RE) program for young people from
preschool to high school, with nursery care also provided.  We have a thriving family community and an engaging Sunday School program which includes workshop rotation for elementary aged children.  Theologically, our Religious Exploration Program seeks to provide children and youth with a meaningful, faith based, non-doctrinal religious education that makes a positive difference in their lives and encourages them to:

•    Focus on and acknowledge the spiritual part of life;

•    Develop a foundation of knowledge empowering them to evaluate their spiritual possibilities; and

•    Articulate their own religious and spiritual beliefs and paths.

 RE at First Unitarian is more than just Sunday School!  We have family evening events, intergenerational services and family chapels, Coming of Age, Children's Choir, Our Whole Lives, Mentor Families, a Parent Discussion and Support Group, and much, much more! Contact our Director of Religious Exploration Eric Bliss for current programming and schedules. 

Miriam's Book Table
Named for longtime member Miraim Grant, Miriam's book table is your first stop for publications from Beacon Press and other liberal publishers.  Lovingly cared for and run by a committee of dedicated bibliophiles.
