Sunday Service

In Our Bones

Are some things programmed into us at conception? Or does culture really teach us all we know? On this New Member Sunday, we’ll consider what we take and what we leave behind.


Life-long Unitarian Universalist, working with others here at the church to change the world in ways I can’t do by myself.

What lies behind you and what lies in front of you, pales in comparison to what lies inside of you.

Our four boys love to go to church because they are surrounded by people who love them, interesting things to do and they feel the interest and respect of the community.

First Unitarian Church of Honolulu became my eternal family, and community of choice! Love the people, the kids, the elder. Love the worship services the workshops and special events. Love A.D.O.R.E. and our Social Justice Council.


I love that I have a place to visit that reminds me of what is truly important in life. I love that church gives me a vehicle to make meaningful actions happen. I love being part of a caring community to share life with.
