At First UU Richmond there are many ways you can connect with our congregation and larger Richmond community. Get an introduction to the UU Faith and become a member through our Pathways series, continue your spiritual learning through one or several of our adult formation sessions, join a community group, practice group or small group. You can also attend one of our services Sunday mornings or Wednesday evenings.

Pathways 1.0 – An Orientation to 1st UU Church of Richmond

New to our community? New to Unitarian Universalism? Pathways presents to you our core values and ways you can connect with individuals and groups in the community. We begin with the basics: who we are, how we are organized, how to connect with our groups, and getting to know you.  We introduce our faith formation, known as FLAME, worship, church governance and polity, UU identity and theology, social justice for children, youth and adults, and the many ways to connect with this faith community.

You must take Pathways to join, but you do not have to join when you take it.

Pathways 2.0 – A deeper dive into UU theology and identity.

You will receive an invitation to this group after you have completed Pathways 1.0. Using the UU Principles and Purposes as a guide, we will reflect on how we can integrate our faith into our daily lives.

We are committed to racial reconciliation in our city. Pathways 3.0: Living the Pledge is a workshop offered three times each year. Participants explore ways to remove prejudice from their lives and make a commitment to treat all people with dignity and respect.
