Community Forums at First U examine our place in our many communities: family, neighborhood, region and the world.  First U has been engaging our friends and neighbors in important conversations since our founding in 1867.

These discussions address issues that are personal as well as global, secular as well as spiritual. We invite all members of the greater Cleveland community to attend and participate.

All Are Welcome! Sundays: 9:30 am-10:45 am
