Making the QuantUUm Leap: Remembering, Engaging, Envisioning
Join Us for a Congregational Workshop
Saturday May 14, 1-4pm
As we approach the actual search for our new settled minister, now is the time to try to put all of these thoughts together. Who are we as a congregation? What do we want in our future? What do we need to get there? What is the religious landscape in America today, and how does UUCM fit in? What will be the challenges that lie ahead for us after our new settled minister arrives? What can we be doing to develop the next generation of UUCM leaders?
We hope that you all will join us on May 14 in the Sanctuary for presentations, small group discussions/breakout sessions, and dialog. Your active participation – to share and to listen – is critical to the success of the workshop. We are all looking forward to taking the journey together.
We ask that you register so we know how many people to expect. Please watch for an upcoming invitation, or register with Laura Wilson. And, please be sure to let us know if you need childcare.
Annual Congregation Meeting
Please plan to attend our annual meeting directly following the one service at 10:00 AM on May 15th. Members are strongly encouraged to attend. A mailing detailing the agenda will be sent out to members in early May.
Pledging 3% of your annual income will give us all the resources we need to sustain our congregation and attract an outstanding new parish minister!
Welcome to the U!
The Unitarian Universalist Congregation at Montclair, now in its 118th year, enjoys a rich history of spiritual exploration and social justice activism. For us, it's difficult to tell those elements apart because we find them to be two aspects of the same human, religious impulse. It's much like breathing in and breathing out.
Here members are not told what to believe, but we don't simply ask, "What do you believe?" We also ask, "What difference does your belief make - in your life and in the world?" We feel that religion is about life, about finding and making meaning in it, and we regularly discover that we do this best in community.
