"The important roles of historical UU women"

Sunday Services

Our Sunday morning services are from 11:00 to 12:00 and are customarily followed by a Q & A period, then coffee and conversation. We engage a variety of speakers, each exploring his/her own subject, which may be religious philosophy, history, current politics, local social concerns, education, ethical development, comparative religions, and so forth. We try to open our minds to receive truth and inspiration from every possible source.

You are warmly invited to visit our Unitarian Fellowship House, 875 West Market Street, Lima, for Sunday morning service and join the conversation during the social hour later.
