Newcomer Connections
Our Newcomer Connections are held on the First Sunday of each month at 12:30 PM. We will meet by the Welcome Desk in the Narthex. 

  • Are you new to the Unitarian Universalist Congregation at Montclair? 
  • Are you visiting or “Congregation Shopping” for yourself or your family? 
  • Do you want to know a bit more about our congregation and the Unitarian Universalist tradition?

Join with one of our ministers and other newcomers to for a short, honest, in-depth conversation. All of your questions will be honored. Childcare is available in our Nursery. Children age 12 and above are welcome to participate. A bagel brunch will be provided. RSVP with our Administrator Danielle Carlo for either or both classes.

UUCM Talk & Tour
Have you ever been curious to learn a bit more about UUCM? Join us for our Talk and Tour every Second Sunday after our service. Come to learn more about our UU history, beliefs and values along with discovering our beautiful Sanctuary and buildings. Meet us by the Welcome Desk in the Narthex after each service!

New Member Covenant Group
Brand New to UUCM or new in the past few years? Join a welcoming group of other newcomers for a New Member Covenant Group co-facilitated by Rev. Anya Sammler-Michael and other relative newcomers. This is one beautiful way to build community and make connections! Sign up by emailing

Pathway to Membership Class
Are you new to The U and interested in membership? We are so glad you have found your way here! Join us for our Pathways to Membership Event! Now is the time to consider deepening in your understanding of the intricacies of the Unitarian Universalist tradition as well as the complexity of our congregational life. Bring your questions and your hopes. Building community takes intention. This is one important step on that intentional path. For more info, please email Danielle Carlo

Membership Committee
The Membership Committee is changing the way we work! We will now have specific teams that will engage in different aspects of membership so that we can better serve the congregation. Check out our various teams and sign up here! Instead of the entire committee having a hand in every aspect of membership, each team will be responsible for smaller tasks. For example, if you only enjoy planning events that can be your main focus while another team works with new members. Help us increase our membership, diversify our congregation, and plan great events for UUCM! Sign up today!
