Please consider the steps outlined below as an invitation for you to learn more about Unitarian Universalism and UUFN as you discover if this community is the right fit for you. When you’re ready, you are warmly invited to become a member, but there is no pressure. Membership is not a requirement to participate in this community. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to connect with our minister, Rev. Sara Smalley.
For Visitors: What We're About
What We’re About is a short overview of Unitarian Universalism and UUFN. Sessions run approximately half an hour and no sign up is necessary – just show up and learn more about our community. Sessions generally are in person at UUFN after Sunday morning services. Children are welcome to attend with their grownup(s).
Offered every other month on the first Sunday:
October 2nd, December 4th, February 5th, April 2nd
If you are a newcomer who is ready to learn more, a Newcomers’ Circle is for you. This class meets for three sessions. At each session, we’ll talk about aspects of Unitarian Universalist history and theology, leaving plenty of time for questions, reflections, and sharing our stories. We recommend anyone who is new to Unitarian Universalism participate in a Newcomers’ Circle. You’ll learn more about UU beliefs while connecting with other newcomers. These classes are informative, meaningful, and fun!
Fall Newcomers’ Circle dates: Sundays, October 23, 30, November 6; 11:30 am - 1:00 pm. Childcare available with advance notice.
The Meaning of Membership
If you are ready to deepen your connection to UUFN, join us for The Meaning of Membership. This class includes information about UUFN and explores the deeper meanings and expectations of membership. Participants will reflect on what membership means to them as we imagine where our journey together might take us. After the class is completed, participants will be invited to officially become members by signing the membership book during a Sunday service. This class is a requirement for membership, and is also a great way to connect with other new members. If you are unable to attend this class but would like to become a member, contact Rev. Sara.
Saturday, March 4th at noon
New Member Recognition Sundays
New members will be welcomed and recognized by the congregation during one of our Sunday services during the year. We hope you will participate in one of these celebrations when you’re ready!
Spring date: May 7th, 2023
