The Inquirers Series is a new program designed to welcome newcomers into our congregation. Seven topics are covered, one per session, and the sessions are cycled throughout the year. Participants are welcome to join at any time, and all are welcome! The sessions are led by lay leaders in our congregation and are coordinated by lay leaders and our membership coordinator.
Participants will become educated on church membership, culture, and on Unitarian Universalist faith and the wider church. The Inquirers‘ classroom creates a safe space for newcomers, friends and new members to explore our church community and to share their journeys with one another.
The Inquirers Series is currently offered every Sunday (every week during the summer sessions) at the 11:15am services. We meet in the Balazs room, and coffee and tea are provided.
