What should my children and I wear to this church?
Some people dress up and some people dress casually. Wear what feels comfortable to you.
Is there child care/Sunday school during church?
During the regular church year (September – June), there are religious education classes on Sundays for children and youth.
If my child doesn’t separate well, can my child stay with me during the service?
Your child is always welcome to stay with you during the worship service. Please be considerate of others if your child becomes restless. The service is broadcast downstairs in Kendall Hall.
Are all people welcome in this congregation?
We strive to respect and welcome all people.
Are there people in the congregation who hold diverse beliefs?
Unitarian Universalists affirm a diversity of religious ideas and support spiritual development guided by freedom, reason, and conscience. In general UUs are very tolerant of others beliefs because we believe that one’s religious faith is a personal choice to be honored and respected.
How do I meet other people? How do I get involved?
Attend a service. You will be greeted at the door and can learn about small group opportunities for education and spiritual growth. Stay for coffee and conversation following the service. Give some thought to whether you prefer to meet new people in social- or work-related activities; we offer plenty of both options. For example, you can come to church potluck luncheons, enroll in an adult religious education class, or join any number of committees to work on specific projects that match your skills/interests. For more information, contact any member of the Membership Committee.
