Past Services

August 30th Stress and Its Effects On Your Memory: New to 1st UU program slate, Dr. Camille King, chair of the Psychology dept. at Stetson University will share her research and study on the affects that stress has on our memory. What are the long and short term affects? What if anything we can do to make changes or steps to improve memory.

September 13th Season of Renewal: Presented by the 1st UU Program Committee and Members. September is often a season of homecoming for 1st UU when our snowbirds begin returning to their southern nest. This year as we are staying put wherever we are, some still have come and gone and returned again. We’ll take this time to celebrate the new church year, to renew our commitments to our church community, each other and ourselves. It’s a time to hit the refresh button and renew. Coleen Summey is Service Leader, while Suzanne Zooms, and Bruce provides the prelude this week.

Future Services


Sept. 20th Artificial Intelligence: Are We Smart Enough?  David P. Gluch, Ph.D. Presents-  Artificial intelligence (AI) is having an ever-increasing impact on our lives. Some is in obvious ways from gaming systems to driverless cars. But what about the more subtle impacts on humanity, especially as AI becomes more ‘intelligent.’ This presentation explores some of the key aspects of AI and the potential implications of AI for us as human beings and as UUs.

Sept. 27th Journeys on The Path To UU: One of our favorite services has been the times when members have shared their own spiritual beginnings and the path, sometimes winding, that lead them to UU and our church community. Come join us as 3 of our members/friends share those personal experiences with us.

Each Sunday and throughout the year, we share insights and explore what it means to be a Unitarian Universalist.

Themes include exploring our principles, developing a caring community, discovering spirituality with a strong emphasis on social activism.

You will find us a welcoming and accepting religious community that fosters your spiritual growth and provides support in your search for truth and meaning.
