One of the simplest but most essential ways we create a Beloved Community together is by being intentional about how we welcome one another into our church and providing a comfortable and enjoyable environment for everyone.

First Unitarian Church has 18 Hospitality Teams that share hospitality duties on Sundays. Teams are comprised of experienced members, so that new members can learn from them.

It takes the entire community to create Beloved Community! If you are not yet a member of a team, or if it has been a while since you have been on a team, please contact Mike and Kara Andreski, our volunteer Hospitality Coordinators.
