Due to the alarming rise of cases of the Omicron variant, The Church of the River COVID-19 task force has recommended cancelling in-person services, at least through Sunday, January 23. A decision on whether to extend the cancellations further will be made after that date.

Welcome to the First Unitarian Church of Memphis - The Church of the River

Who are we? As part of the liberal Unitarian Universalist denomination, we’re a diverse, progressive and caring congregation. We care about social justice, the environment and each other. We welcome you no matter where you come from, what color your skin is or who you love. If you’re looking for a community of like-minded people to help you grow your soul, raise compassionate children, and live a fuller life, we invite you to join us.

Sunday Schedule

Scheduled activities at the church are currently cancelled or have moved online. This decision was made out of an abundance of caution, following the leads of several other religious institutions, and the advice of the UUA.
