Inquirers Newcomer Group
Meets every Sunday at 9:45 Sept-April, 11:45 AM May-August in Annex B
Inquirers is a series for anyone who would like to meet others and learn more about UUCP. Each week after service join other newcomers and leaders for a half hour of building connections and growing relationships. The second half hour explores changing topics each week, that go deeper into an area of ministry within our congregation.
Participants in Inquirers have said, “I’ve felt more at home here by coming to Inquirers a few times, than I had in the last year I attended on and off. I’m so glad you have this group!”
Inquirers topics include Leadership, Children’s Ministry, Unicare, Social Justice, Membership, Congregational Tour + History, Small Group Ministry, Unitarian Universalism 101, Music Ministry and Inside Worship Services.
No sign-up necessary, just show up when you can!
Pathway to Membership
Membership at UUCP is an important commitment. None of what we do – our programs, worship, classes, ministries – would be possible without the service and leadership of members. Membership moves folks from observers, consumers, and visitors of the congregation, into part of the fabric of our community: its owners, its leaders, its future. As such, the decision to become a member is personal, and there is no pressure to join until you are fully ready.
In the spirit of radical inclusion, we have created a Pathway to Membership that is more flexible and accessible. Instead of attending a class, members complete each part of the path at their own pace, in the way they choose for themselves. When the Pathway is complete, you will have experienced what it is to be a member of UUCP, and will be ready to sign the membership book during a joining ceremony.
If you are ready to start your Pathway to Membership, fill out this form or contact Janine Gelsinger, Director of Membership and Welcoming Ministries. Each element of the path must be completed by November 30th. The fall Joining Ceremony will be December 9th.
