Are you a newcomer to North Parish, whether new to Unitarian Universalism or just new to this particular congregation? Someone who is considering joining the congregation as a member? A longer-term member who would like to meet some newer members, reflect on why you are a UU, and get a quick re-grounding in UU history and theology? If so, you might be interested in our “New UU” series.
- Talk & Tour (Intro to North Parish)
Join Membership Committee and North Parish members for a brief tour of the Meeting House and to learn about North Parish, history and present.
- Learn & Affirm (Intro to UUism)
During this one hour small group, Rev. Lee provides an overview of the history of Unitarian Universalism. From its early Judeo-Christian roots (25 BCE- 1700 CE) through American Purtianism (1700-1800s) and the merger of Unitarianism and Universalism (1961), we’ll end with what UUs believe today.
- Reflect & Connect (Our Spiritual Journeys)
Our personal “religious histories” can exert profound influence us- theologically, spiritually, and in our expectations of religious community. Whether you are new to North Parish or a long-time member looking to make new acquaintances, Rev. Lee invites you to join her to explore “how we got here” (our spiritual/religious journeys or lack thereof) and where we would like to go.
To learn when the next class will be offered, please contact us. In the meantime, you may enjoy watching the UUA video, “Voices of a Liberal Faith.” In this video, members and ministers share their thoughts on worship and fellowship, explain the goals of religious education, explore the historic roots of our religion, and celebrate the spirit of social justice that inspires our faith.
If you find North Parish is your spiritual/religious home or identify yourself as a Unitarian Universalist, we invite you to join us as a full participant in the life of the congregation. Click here to learn how to become a member.
