When are the services?
Services are on Sundays. Services start at 10:30 a.m. every Sunday during the year and last about an hour. In addition, from September through June an adult education forum, "Sunday Morning Dialog" begins at 9:00 a.m. and ends at 10:00 a.m. Breakfast foods and coffee are provided at 8:45 a.m. All are welcome!
What should I wear to the Meetinghouse?
Some people dress casual and some more formal. Children should dress comfortably in clothes welcoming to movement and art and outdoors.
Where do I park?
There is some parking in the front of the building, but lots more in the back. If both lots are full you can also park on the street.
What should I do the first time I come?
Come a little early and let a Greeter know you are new. They will give you a nametag if you would like, help you fill out a visitor card, provide you with a visitor packet of information and show you the Sanctuary and religious education classrooms for your children. After the service please join us for refreshments in the Community Room.
What about children?
Please contact our Director of Religious Education, Michelle McKenzie-Creech at (732) 741-8016 the week before so that she knows you are coming. Come a little early so that the children can see their classrooms first and then the entire family can be seated in the Sanctuary. The children join us for the first part of the service and then go to classes.
What about babies?
We have a wonderful, safe nursery for infants and toddlers. Alicia Jenks is our childcare coordinator. She is there nearly every Sunday to meet you and introduce you to our childcare volunteers. You might want to come one Sunday and stay in the nursery with your child to acclimate them and get comfortable yourself. In general we prefer that babies go to the nursery during services. However if your baby is very young and you wish to bring them please sit in the back seats so that your possible movement will be less disturbing during the service. You can also hear services in the East Room just to the left of the Sanctuary if your baby is unhappy.
Where can I learn more about Unitarian Universalism?
We offer Path to Membership classes in the Fall and Spring for newcomers. Our Adult Religious Education courses, Covenant Circles and other offerings are open to all. Joining a small group and coming regularly to services is the best way to learn about us. Please visit Unitarian Universalist Association Of Congregations for additional information.
