For Newcomers

We would like to welcome you when you visit. You’ll find greeters in the foyer of the sanctuary and also welcoming table at the entrance to Hewett Hall. Ask your questions and pick up written information about upcoming events. The folks at the welcome table can help you get connected if there are particular interests you’d like to explore.

Coffee (and tea and water) are served in the Hall before and aafter the service. This is a good time to look around and meet a few people. As well as beverages, there’s usually lunch served by one of our active groups after the service.

New members tell us:

“I feel as if I’ve come home.”

“Where have you been all my life?”

“I think I must’ve always been a Unitarian.”

Newcomers often tell us these things after walking through our doors and attending a few services and events. We hope that you too will find a community, a spiritual home, a place of support and caring, as well as plenty of intellectual and spiritual stimulation and challenge.

What makes this happen?

  • Discovering shared ethical values.
  • Working and playing together to build and keep community.
  • Giving and receiving support.
  • Taking action on social justice issues.
  • Exploring our own and others’ thoughts on matters of the spirit, heart, and mind.

We offer a Newcomers Orientation (New U) twice a year. Contact Dianne if you’d like to receive information about the next session.
