INTRODUCTION TO UNITARIAN UNIVERSALISM AND THE FELLOWSHIP OF FREDERICKSBURG
Are you new to Unitarian Universalism?  Do you want to know more about our Fellowship?  We have a class that will help you with these questions, and more–UU101.  This quarterly class will be held on February 25, 2018 at the UU Fellowship of Fredericksburg from 12:00-4:00pm. Lunch will be provided.
UU 101 covers topics such as the history of Unitarian Universalism; activities that interest you; requirements of membership; governance of this Fellowship; and how to become a contributing congregant. This is a wonderful opportunity to meet newcomers like yourself and share your respective religious/spiritual journeys in a safe and positive setting. It is also a part of the path toward membership.
To register for the class, please fill out the form at this link: UU101  or send an email to Nancy Michael at uuff@verizon.net and ask to be included.  Let us know if you need child care. It will be great to get to know you better.
