Faith Forward Series Returns for 2024

Many visitors come to UUSM with a host of questions: “What do Unitarian Universalists believe?” “What happens in your church community?”  Our Faith Forward Inquirers Series for visitors, new members, and current members is designed to help answer these questions and many others.

The series comprises seven sessions that are presented on Sundays after worship from January 28 through March 24. You may attend any session on any date; it is not necessary to attend them in sequence nor is it necessary to attend them all, although we hope you do so. The program is updated with new info and new presenters for 2024.

For new and recent visitors, this is an opportunity to get to know Unitarian Universalism and the many programs the church has to offer, which will help you decide if UUSM is the spiritual community you are looking for. Members old and new attend to learn more about our congregation, and to see what kinds of questions the new folks are asking. All are welcome to  any sessions that look interesting.

Are you asking, What do Unitarian Universalists believe?

Sessions will be held from noon to 1:00 pm in Room 4 on the second floor of Forbes Hall, except for the March 10 session which will be held in the Cottage.

The sessions and dates are as follows:

  • January 28 – UU History – Tom Hamilton

  • February 11 – Religious Education (RE) Children’s Program – Rev Amelia; Our Whole Lives (OWL) Program – Amy Thiel

  • February 18 – The UU 7 Principles & Article II – Amy Brunell
