Dance Party Fundraiser
How much fun is it to go to a wedding and dance all night to that fabulous music? WAY better than a club with the lights and techno music. Join us on Saturday, September 24th from 7:00 to 9:00 PM for a good old-fashioned dance party featuring music from the 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s and today. Only $10 per person for advance tickets ($20 at the door) with the proceeds benefiting the U. Contact Kate Conroy for more info.
Pathway to Membership Classes
Are you interested in what it means to be a member? Join us over four consecutive Sundays – October 2nd, 9th, 16th and 23rd, from 10:00 to 11:00 AM (between services) in the Alliance Room – to learn more about Unitarian Universalism and our congregation. We will share our faith journeys, explore the history of UU traditions, and gain an orientation to this congregation’s life by members and leaders. Those who choose can become members at the last session. Please email us to sign up or visit the RE table during Coffee Hour on Sunday.
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.
