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, Museum District. 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 class includes a complimentary lunch (optional), giving everybody an opportunity to get better acquainted with each other. Facilitated by church staff and Welcome Team leaders. Childcare is available if reservation is made by Wednesday, September 9; email names and ages of your children to childcare@firstuu.org.

We require a minimum of ten participants to have the class. Registration is required so please sign up at the church on Sunday, contact us at office@firstuu.org or call the office at (713) 526-5200.
