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 are in person at UUFN after Sunday morning services. Children are welcome to attend with their grownup(s).
Offered every other month after Sunday services:
October 8th, December 3rd, February 4th, April 7th
New to UU
If you are a newcomer who is ready to learn more, New to UU 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 -- or people who have been around a while but want to know more -- participate in this class. You’ll learn more about UU beliefs while connecting with other newcomers. These classes are informative, meaningful, and fun!
Fall 2023 New to UU dates:
Monday evenings, November 13, 27, December 4th (note there is no class Nov. 20)
7-8:30 pm on Zoom
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.
Sunday, December 10th after the sevice at UUFN
Spring date TBD
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!
2023-24 dates to be determined.
