Exploring Our Spiritual Practices
Join our Killam Fellow, Elizabeth Assenza, for a five week drop-in class on developing spiritual practices. What does it mean to develop a regular, intentional spiritual practice both from our collective identity as Unitarian Universalists and our individual identities as humanists, theists, agnostics, etc.? Together we will explore a variety of spiritual practices and the places they might hold in our lives. Is there a practice you'd like to learn more about? Be sure not to miss the first class; we'll be making some decisions about the particular practices we will explore together!
Volunteer Opportunities at the Gay Games
Volunteers are needed for 2 events at the Gay Games being held in Cleveland August 9-16. On Saturday, August 9, 10 people are needed to help provide hospitality to people at the Festival Village. There is also a need for 10 volunteers to help out with the Closing Ceremony at the Rock Hall on Saturday eventing August 16. If you are interested in helping out with either event please email Cat White at firstname.lastname@example.org. This will be a great opportunity to represent our church at an important civic event!

The tab labeled Press features links to articles about the church in the media so our church community can read and share them, if desired. Social media links and references to the church would be here, too. If you spot the church in the news, send it to us! We'll make sure to include it.
And the Video tab features some short films that have been produced to show what it looks and feels like to be a part of the First Unitarian Church of Cleveland. As we get more video, from events or other programs at the church, we will add those, as well.
