Introduction

The First Unitarian Church of Cleveland is a Unitarian Universalist congregation serving the Greater Cleveland Area . With our history rooted in the Jewish and Christian traditions , contemporary Unitarian Universalism is a liberal religion -- that is, a religion that keeps an open heart and mind to the religious quests and questions that people struggle with in all times and places.

Ours is a Welcoming Congregation comprised of 374 adult members and 185 children. We welcome and celebrate the presence and participation of people of all sexual orientations.

The First Unitarian Church has maintained a presence for liberal religion in Greater Cleveland since 1867. We gather within a tradition dating back to the Reformation that affirms the value of human experience, our need for ever-deepening compassion and understanding, the search for what is true and right in human relations, and the interdependence of Life.

We have no dogma or creed, recognizing instead that the Source of Life (by whatever name we may know it) shines through each individual soul in ways that are both common and unique (One Light, Many Windows). We invite all who share these values to be a part of our liberal religious community.
