First Universalist Church of Pittsfield, Maine

A Loving Place for All

The Welcome Table

Among the many ways our congregation strives to serve the community is to provide a home for the Welcome Table. The Welcome Table is a community-based free lunch program housed at the First Universalist Church of Pittsfield, ME. It provides an opportunity for socializing as well as a nutritious meal every Friday from 9:30am to noon, and has done so since 2009. 


The organizing team is composed of members of the this church as well as people from the wider community. Businesses, local churches, and civic organizations volunteer to prepare and serve the meal.


The Welcome Table is always looking for partners to host - provide a nourishing meal and hands to help serve if possible. If you or your company are interested in contributing in any way please contact us using the form below. Thank you for your support.

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.
