The Worthy Now Prison Ministry Network is a liberal religious coalition powered by the Church of the Larger Fellowship (CLF). It includes individuals, groups, and communities of faith called to prison ministry/justice.

Our dream is for all people who are imprisoned to know they are inherently Worthy Now of love and justice. And for them to have access to religious freedom.

This means all are worthy of love, respect and support right now—not at some future time when we are better people, but as we are. The Worthy Now Network is committed to strengthening our Unitarian Universalist (UU) First Principle with this declaration.

Share the Plate Collection

Because of your generosity, for the month of March, we collected $2,173.78 for the Share the Plate recipient One Voice Chorus.

For the month of April, we have collected $604.50 towards the Share the Plate recipient Worthy Now, a UU Prison Ministry.

Do you shop on Amazon? What about Kroger? 

Did you know that you can support First UU by shopping where you already shop?! Here are two easy options to help support the church.
Go to and search for First Unitarian Universalist. Then, when you want to order something from Amazon, make sure to order from and Amazon will send a percentage of your purchase to the church! 
If you shop at Kroger and have a Kroger Plus card, search on your favorite web search site for Kroger Community Rewards. You can enroll by linking your plus card to the church and Kroger will send a percentage of your purchase to the church!
The church does not see your purchases in either place. We simply receive a check once a month from the organization. If you have any questions, please email Kelli McNeal ( and she will be happy to answer any questions.
