First Unitarian Society of Ithaca services are held in person Sundays at 10:30 am. We are located at the corner of Aurora St. and Buffalo St (306 N. Aurora Street). The church does not have a parking lot, but there is free parking on the nearby city streets on Sundays and the Town of Ithaca allows us to use their lot on Sundays (on Buffalo Street, directly across from the church). Masking is optional

Join us after service at Coffee Hour in the church parlor for a time of connection.

Sunday Services will also be Live Streamed from the sanctuary on our YouTube Channel. If you are unable to attend in person, we would love for you to join us virtually! Just click on the link above each Sunday at 10:30 am (or you can watch it later at your convenience).

Our services feature inspiring words, music, and stories exploring themes in a multigenerational context. We are excited to welcome you! Information about upcoming services is listed below. View Past Services.


March Services

Sunday, April 2 – “Resistance, Social Justice and Faith”
Rev. Peaches Gilette, Associate Director of Congregational Life

Peaches is an educator, essayist, poet and spiritual leader. She is interested in building communities that model how to engage in peace talks and civility, utilizing her training in negotiations to respectfully, and effectively discuss conflicting
