We offer several ways for you to learn about UUCF and Unitarian Universalism and for us to get to know you. 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. Then join us for newcomer and membership events or classes. Here’s the information you will need.

Contact Mary Foster, 703-281-4230, x232, for questions or to sign up.

Visitors receptions and orientation classes

Each month (generally on the first Sunday) we encourage new visitors 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. Upcoming dates are listed below.

The Membership Committee also 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 in advance. Upcoming dates listed below.

Membership ritual

If you’ve been coming to UUCF for a while, or are coming from another UU congregation want to become a UUCF member,  you can sign the membership book at one of UUCF’s membership rituals.
