We are happy to work with you to design a ceremony that celebrates a new family or the life of a beloved person.  Please contact our Ceremonies Coordinator, Nicole Tuszysnki, nicole@fuub.org, 718.404.2348.


Best Wishes on your Engagement!

We’d be honored to have your wedding here at First Unitarian.

 All couples who are ready to make a life-long commitment to each other are invited to celebrate their marriage in our spaces.

We have celebrated many inter-faith, inter-cultural, gay and lesbian, and bi-lingual weddings.  We welcome couples of all faiths and religious backgrounds, as well as couples who profess no religious affiliation, to be married at First U.

Our minister team will work with you to create a unique ceremony that reflects your religious and cultural backgrounds, your spiritual beliefs, and your personalities.

Our Ceremonies Coordinator, Nicole Tuszynski  will make sure that your planning goes smoothly and that no detail is overlooked! 

Tours of the church are offered on Sundays at 10:30 AM. You can arrange a tour or set up a meeting Nicole by emailing nicole@fuub.org





Child Dedications, Christenings, or Blessings

Congratulations on the new addition/additions to your family!

We welcome all families to celebrate a new child or children with us. Children’s ceremonies are conducted on Sunday afternoons at 1PM. The fee is $600 (which includes the officiant’s compensation). Payment is due at the time of reservation.  Typially, children’s ceremonies are less than 20 minutes, but you will have the space for an entire hour to set up and take photos. You are welcome to bring in music, decorations, and any toys or objects that will make your children most comfortable.

If you would like to arrange a Child Dedication/Christening you will be asked to complete a short form. Our Ceremonies Coordinator, Nicole Tuszynski, will be in touch with you to finalize the date.  Once the date is arranged, the minister will be in touch with you to set up a time to meet and plan the ceremony.
