About First Unitarian Church of Cleveland

Unitarian Universalists are thinkers and doers.

We are brave, curious, and compassionate; and diverse in faith, history, and spirituality.

We are people of many beliefs and backgrounds: people with a religious background, people with none, people who believe in a God, people who don’t, and people who let the mystery be.

We are Unitarian Universalist and Buddhist, Christian, Hindu, Humanist, Jewish, Muslim, Pagan, atheist and agnostic, believers in God, and more.

We are aligned in our desire to make a difference for the good. We have a track record of standing on the side of love, justice, and peace.

We are people of all sexual orientations and gender identities. We have been on the forefront of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer inclusion for more than 40 years.

We welcome you as you are: your whole self, with all your truths and your doubts, your worries and your hopes.

Whoever you love, whatever you believe, we invite you to join us on this extraordinary adventure of faith.

History of First Unitarian Church of Cleveland Shaker Heights OH

Since our founding in January 1867 as the First Unitarian Society of Cleveland, our church has been a force for liberal religion in the Cleveland area. In 1932, we changed our name to First Unitarian Church of Cleveland, following a merger with All Souls Universalist Church of Cleveland. The merger made our church a Unitarian Universalist congregation 30 years before the official formation of the Unitarian Universalist Association.

In recent years, the congregation has become a leader in sustainability and ecological issues, having become officially designated a Green Sanctuary by the UUA, and building a Permaculture Garden. In 2012, our 11,000-watt solar array installed. The solar array currently supplies 90 percent of the power used by the church.   Edit

The power of Christian prayer Put me to what You will
Lord, I am no longer my own, but Yours. Put me to what You will, rank me with whom You will. Let be employed by You or laid aside for You, exalted for You or brought low by You. Let me have all things, let me have nothing, I freely and heartily yield all things to Your pleasure and disposal. And now, O glorious and blessed God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, You are mine and I am Yours. So be it. Amen.
