New U Class
Saturday, January 11, 9:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.
While the New U Class is primarily a pathway to membership, everyone is welcome - both the curious and those who have already decided to join us. We will explore how your spiritual journey led you to us and how UUs talk about religion. You’ll have a short tour of the building and find out the way things run here at First Church. During the class you’ll have the opportunity to meet several church leaders and staff. We’ll do our best to answer your questions.
The day includes a complimentary lunch, giving everybody an opportunity to get better acquainted with each other. Facilitated by church staff and Welcome Team leaders.
Childcare will be available; e-mail names and ages to email@example.com by Friday, January 3. We require a minimum of ten participants in the class. Registration is required so please sign up at the church or contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling the office at 713–526-5200.
