United Parish is starting a new social group for lesbian, gay, bi, trans, and queer folks within our church as a way to build community. We'll be gathering together one Sunday a season (winter, spring, summer, fall) for brunch after worship.

On Sunday, February 24, we welcomed 13 people into United Parish. Photos and bios are posted on the bulletin board in the Marion Street lobby, or email for a digital copy.

Thrifty Threads is challenging United Parish worshipers to help make this Lenten period a productive time for two organizations we support. Year Up is an organization helping young men prepare for the workforce. The need for ties is urgent....

Our popular Lenten dinner church series begins on March 14 at 6 PM in the Parlor. This space is one of our most intimate and rich worship opportunities at United Parish, and it also one of our most labor-intensive to organize. As such, we need whatever help you can provide!

Our Seminarian, Wilson Hood, will be leading after-worship sessions on the theme of “Exploring Our Faith” for the 20s/30s group. We'll explore faith and our expression of our faith in the weeks leading up to Easter.

If you'd like to submit a prayer or have your email address added to the mailing list, please contact

Parents and youth in 8th grade and up are invited to meet in the Deepening Room immediately following worship this Sunday, March 31 to discuss youth group planning for next year.

Members of the United Parish Carolers and Youth Choir will join numerous other local choirs for this annual event. The kids will enjoy a full day of activities including singing, dancing, acting, life-size puppet making, drumming, and art.

Every Easter, we decorate the Sanctuary with lilies and flowers.
