First, We Let Go

January 1, 2023 | 10:00 am - 11:00 am


One service only at 10:00 am.


Today’s Topic:

Multi-Generational Service. No RE classes or childcare today. 

We cannot find our center in the new year until we let go of the old year. Although marking the beginning of a new year is somewhat arbitrary (we can make a new beginning at any time), January 1 brings thoughts of starting new endeavors and making new promises. Time is funny—it keeps going, it doesn’t care, we humans make it new. What do we need to let go in order to embrace a new beginning? Join us for this multigenerational service which includes a ritual of letting go.

Worship Team:

Rev. Dena McPhetres, Associate Minister
Alissa Rhode, Lead Music Director
Patrick Mulvey, Worship Associate

Livestream at 10:00 am:

Join us for the complete service live on our YouTube site at 10:00 am. Find a recording of the service at our YouTube site anytime after 10:00 am.

Masking with KN95 masks required at worship for all over age 5. Highly recommended for all other church activities.

No RE classes or Childcare today. Please enjoy the worship 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.

Parking: Our church has no parking lot. Jewish Family Services lot: JFS welcomes us to use their parking lot on Sundays. It is located 3 blocks west of the church, on Van Buren near Knapp St. Kingshead lot: On Sundays we can also use the gated parking lot on the corner of Van Buren and Knapp Streets. After you park, get a token from an usher in order to exit the lot. We also rely on street parking in our neighborhood. Here is a map with details.

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