Due to the pandemic, it’s been a couple of years since we’ve held a proper welcoming ceremony for new members. This Sunday, we were finally able to be together in the Sanctuary to welcome the most recent members of our congregation. We had 16 participants in our new members’ ceremony as part of Sunday’s service. Each new member received a rose and a warm welcome — and the lucky ones also got freshly baked apple pie made from the harvest from our garden here at UCV.
Now that we’re open again for in-person services, we are looking forward to our next new members’ welcoming ceremony in Spring 2022. If you’d like to be a part of it, there’s a path to membership for you. (Email our membership coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like more information, and if you’re completely new to UCV please fill our new visitor form here.)
