Join us for coffee and tea following worship service on Sunday mornings, and ask our members why they love being part of our liberal religious community. You might hear stories of how our community has provided a supporting environment for exploring one’s personal understanding of meaning in the world, how their children love our Religious Exploration programs, how they discovered a new concept in an Adult Religious Exploration class on Wednesday nights, or how we volunteer together throughout our community.

We periodically hold UU101 classes where you can learn more about our faith and our congregation. Our classes include an overview of the history of Unitarian Universalism, the history of our congregation, and information about how to connect with programs and volunteer opportunities. These classes also provide you an opportunity to meet other newcomers, along with members who have joined recently, and with members who have been part of our community for several years.

Our bylaws state that “any person,16 years of age or older, who is in sympathy with the spirit and purpose of this congregation as expressed in the Bond of Union, may become a member. The person becomes an official member by signing the membership book in the presence of the minister, any member of the Board of Trustees, or any member of the Membership Committee.”

If you are new to Unitarian Universalism, we highly recommend that you spend some time with us, attend Sunday services, and attend an Introduction to UU class. This will help you decide if our faith will be a good fit for you.  Our minister also welcomes conversations regarding your personal search and faith journey. If you would like to attend one of our UU101 classes, please contact the church office for more information at or call us at 814-864-9300.
