What to Expect

Warm greetings to all who contemplate their first visit to First Unitarian Church.
We hope that our progressive church community will prove welcoming in all respects.

Service Times

Sundays

  • We are currently on our summer schedule, with one service at 10:00 a.m.

The church is located on the corner of 1300 East and 600 South in Salt Lake City, Utah.

 

Sunday School

Sunday School is provided for 4 year olds through 12th grade. (We do have childcare for the little ones).

Grades 1-6 meet in the chapel with their parents and then head to their classrooms after the first hymn. All other youngsters are asked to find their classrooms upon arrival; check in with volunteers at the Welcome table to find the right classroom for your child/teen. 

Please find out more about our schedule.

Parking

Plenty of on-street parking exists plus visitors may use the parking lot of Friendship Manor at the corner of 1300 East and 500 South. Enter the parking lot from either of Friendship Manor's two driveways and make your way south towards the church's 78 parking stalls. 

Get directions to the Church.
