Who We Are


The First Unitarian Universalist Congregation has been an active liberal religious voice in the Ann Arbor community since our founding on May 14, 1865.

Our outward symbols speak to who we are. Two flags fly at the entrance to our building – a Black Lives Matter and a Rainbow Flag. A rotating solar panel stands in the prairie grass in front of the church, collecting renewable solar energy. Some people refer to our 90 foot tall wind turbine as our steeple. Our grounds feature extensive walking trails, a colorful children’s playground that encourages imaginative play, and a memorial garden.

We have a long history focused on social justice, starting with our founders, who included at least one conductor for the Underground Railroad. (Learn more about our history). We also have many vibrant ministries – including a large children’s and youth education program and a beloved music ministry with several talented ensembles.

We honor our rich past and present, even as we move toward our bold vision for the future. We need your voice in this work, so join us!
