Get ready for the Annual Montclair Interfaith Choir Festival!
For the fourth year, we are welcoming ensembles from congregations in and around Montclair. Each choir will perform a few selections from their own repertoire, and at the end all singers join together to make a joyful noise. The concert on Sunday, January 22nd, at 4:00 PM in our Sanctuary and is open to the public (suggested donation $5). The concert will be followed by a reception for everybody. Donations of finger foods, desserts, and drinks are appreciated and can be dropped off, ready to go, in the kitchen on Sunday morning or in the afternoon before 4 pm. Please mark your contribution "Choir Fest" and email Diane Specht (who is keeping count of what is being donated for the event).

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.
