Like a menu with many choices, finding your way among UUC’s many programs and activities can be daunting. You can take advantage of most of UUC’s offerings even if you are not a member. For many, some involvement and direct experience is key to deciding about membership and whether this is the right community for you.
For more detailed information about our community and ways to get involved, we encourage you to use our UUC Program Guide. There are many resources and contacts identified in this guide to provide more information for activities and volunteer opportunities available at UUC.
Learn about UUC through our website – you’re here! We have designed it with newcomers in mind. And we hope you find it inviting, easy to use, and full of clear, alluring information. For an overall sense of what is here, drag your cursor over the main navigation bar — in brown — on the top of each page. And take a look at our Get Involved page, which will take you to descriptions of our major programs, to an all-groups catalog, and to our calendar of all that is going on.
Attend Sunday services. Worship services are the centerpiece of UUC’s spiritual life, and a chance for members and visitors to connect. Greeters are on hand to make visitors and newcomers feel welcome and to answer questions. Stop at the greeters’ station when you arrive for a name badge and suggestions on how to find your way around.
Visit with us during the Sunday social hour. Before and after both services, we invite you to join us in Nathan Johnson Hall — just across from the chapel — for coffee, tea, treats, and conversation. One of the greeters (they're the ones with red ribbons) will help you join in and find your way around.
Read about UUC’s upcoming activities and developments in the weekly Sunday Order of Service, The Gateway (available weekly as an eNewsletter and monthly in print at the church), our website, and Facebook page.
The clearer you are about what you need and want from your church experience, the more readily you will see opportunities at UUC. Reflect on the following questions to help you choose:
Through your own reflections and test-runs, may you find ways of being involved at UUC that “speak to you,” that make you feel connected, welcome, and appreciated for your contribution of time and talent.
If you would like some person-to-person support to help you find your way, contact the church office or one of the Sunday greeters or another member of the church.
