Welcome to the First Unitarian Church of Memphis

The Church of the River

Worship in a unique setting overlooking the Mississippi River. Uplift the heart and engage the mind. Our emphasis is not on saving souls but on providing a religious community of inquiry and affection where one may grow his or her soul. Join us at the Church of the River in downtown Memphis.
