Christmas Eve Offering Recipients:

We give away our entire Christmas Eve offering every year. This year, you can support one or both of these worthy organizations.  Interchange Food Pantry, a food pantry that First Church founded in 1971 along with a group of neighboring churches, is committed to helping provide healthy food to low-income residents of Milwaukee in a compassionate and supportive environment.  MacCanon Brown Homeless Sanctuary is a daytime sanctuary and multi-resource center for homeless and at-risk individuals. It is a place to be and belong that offers hope to those who struggle for resources in Milwaukee’s overwhelmed safety net.


Receptions after each service:  Join us in the Leenhouts Common Room for coffee, treats, friendly conversation and more candlelight after each service.

We offer religious education for children of all ages at 9:00 a.m. on Sundays. To learn more, please see our Religious Education Web Pages and sign up to receive our RE Weekly Update.

First Unitarian Society of Milwaukee is a progressive church for spiritual community, social justice, and intellectual freedom. Visitors to First Church are always welcome!
