Who Are We?

We are people of all ages, people of many backgrounds, and people of many beliefs. We are brave, curious and compassionate thinkers and doers. We create spirituality and community beyond boundaries, working for more justice and more love in our own lives and in the world.

 

​Live your values aloud, not alone. Join us as we endeavor for more love, more justice, and more hope in this world. Here and now.

 

Love is the Spirit of this church

And service is its law

This is our great covenant

To dwell together in Peace

To seek the Truth in Love

And to help one another


The Unitarian Universalist Meeting House (formerly First Universalist Church) of Pittsfield holds services each Sunday at 9:45 a.m. among other weekly activities - both sacred and secular, congregational and community-oriented - that you can find on our calendar.

We welcome all; come as you are. 

We invite you to take a look at our historic building, join us in community, schedule your community event.


Service Instead of Service

Services Sundays Each Month at 9:45 a.m.

To honor and participate in Pittsfield’s Year of Kindness, we are taking our UU values outside the walls of the sanctuary and into the world of our Central Maine communities. Once each month in 2017, we will gather together to do good. Instead of the regularly scheduled Sunday service, Service Instead of Service will be a time to gather together in service. As usual, we will meet at 9:45, share joys and concerns, and then spend our time intentionally spreading kindness in creative and helpful ways

So far, we've made soup and bread for the homebound; we created and distributed bird feeder kits; we mopped, swept, and built a set for a fundraiser play in support of the Welcome Table; we packaged pollinator-friendly wild flower seed packets for distribution; and we organized a town-wide clean-up of Pittsfield, and walked the streets, trails, and pond to pick up trash.

What Do Unitarian Universalists Believe?

Unitarian Universalism affirms and promotes seven Principles, grounded in the humanistic teachings of the world's religions. Our spirituality is unbounded, drawing from scripture and science, nature and philosophy, personal experience and ancient tradition as described in our six sources

The Seven Principles are:

  1. The inherent worth and dignity of every person;
  2. Justice, equity and compassion in human relations;
  3. Acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth in our congregations;
  4. A free and responsible search for truth and meaning;
  5. The right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in society at large;
  6. The goal of world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all;
  7. Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part.
