Understanding who we are and where we come from are important concepts for many people. Often this journey of seeing understanding is done through genealogy and personal stories. In this service we will explore our connections with the people who preceded us at First Unitarian. We will focus on those who choose to be interred in our Memorial Garden that surrounds our church. Learn more about your chosen path by reviewing the path other Unitarian Universalists have chosen. Revisit with us the joys and accomplishments of our community’s ancestors.
