We are so happy that you are interested in getting to know First Unitarian Church of Rochester! Our Membership Coordinator is here to help you get to know our community. The most important step in becoming involved at First Unitarian is to connect with a smaller group or community within the larger church. We are in essence, a community of communities, and finding your place in this space is what will help make First Unitarian your home. In these smaller groups, we want you to feel spiritually fed and create a space where you can live out that which is most meaningful to you. Some examples of smaller communities here at First Unitarian are: Soul Matters, Adult Spiritual Development Groups, Environmental Justice, UU/Schools Partnership, the Choir, meditation classes with the Buddhist Fellowship, volunteer opportunities with the Rochester Area Interfaith Hospitality Network, Parenting groups through our Religious Education program, and much more!
We offer 3 workshop style classes: UU 101: Introduction to Unitarian Universalism and First Unitarian Church, Starting Point: Is First Unitarian Right for You? and UU 201: Step to Membership. Each of these classes will help you dive deeper into our faith and community. We hope that this process will eventually lead you to become an official Member of our community, during our New Member Recognition Weekend.
