We offer several ways to learn about UUCF and our Unitarian Universalist denomination. The first step is to join us for a service (or two or three!) on a Sunday morning. Your children are welcome to try out our Sunday morning classes as visitors. Come to a monthly visitors reception. Once you’re comfortable, we encourage you to try one of the Adult Programs classes, join a group, volunteer for a project. We would love for you to attend the newcomers orientation class when you are ready to explore in a deeper way. And when you feel that this is truly your spiritual home, please consider membership. Here’s the information you will need.

Visitors receptions

Next reception: Sun., Oct. 8, 10:15 a.m. and 12:15 p.m.

Each month (generally on the first Sunday) we encourage new people to congregate near the beautiful mosaic in the coffee area, for refreshments and fellowship. Please get a cup of coffee or tea and stop by. Our Membership Committee, one of our ministers and a few lay leaders will join you to welcome you and answer questions. Children are welcome.

Other dates: Nov. 5, 10:15 a.m. and 12:15 p.m.

Newcomer orientation classes

Next class: TBD

The Membership Committee offers newcomer orientation several times a year. Newcomer classes are designed for those exploring what UUCF and Unitarian Universalism are all about. We give a brief overview of the history and basic tenets of UUism and the programs and volunteer opportunities at UUCF. You will meet with a minister and other leaders of the congregation and get to know others who are also exploring the possibility of making UUCF their spiritual home. We strongly recommend this class for all those new to UUCF. Child care can be available if you register by Sep. 20. Future class dates TBA.

To RSVP or for questions contact Mary Foster, 703-281-4230 x232.

Membership ritual

Next class: Sun., Nov. 5 after the second service

If you have been coming to UUCF for a while and feel that it is time to make the commitment of membership, or if you are coming to us from another Unitarian Universalist congregation and are familiar with the UU faith but new to our UUCF community and wish to sign the membership book, you will need to attend a membership ritual. These meetings are offered frequently during the year. Check back here for other dates, or contact Mary Foster, 703-281-4230, x232, if you have questions or want to register for the ritual. Child care is available with advance reservation. Please check back.

Please complete the New Member Information form and the Get Connected and Volunteer form before attending a membership class.
