New Staff Start-Up Workshop

Andrea Lerner, the UUA Central East Region Director of Congregational Life, will be facilitating a StartUp for Revs. Anya and Scott, Chris Buja, the Board of Trustees, various Committee Chairs and other lay leaders on Saturday, October 28th, from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM. The startup process is designed to assist the ministers and staff who are new to a congregation, their colleagues, lay leaders and congregants to get to know one another better at the start of their relationship. This is done through an exploration of the congregation’s history, its current functioning and “culture”, and mutual hopes for the future. Through this process of sharing and familiarization, a set of goals and action steps can be identified to guide all parties through the initial period of adjustment. The clarification of expectations, goals, and ways of relating at the beginning helps to establish a stable and healthy environment in which all can grow and flourish. There will be sessions in the morning and afternoon. Please click here to RSVP.

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.
