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 Family Ministry, Michelle McKenzie-Creech, by clicking on her name to email her or by calling (732) 741-8016 the week before so that she knows you are coming. Come a little early, so 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. Our childcare coordinator 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, babies go to the nursery during the service. If your baby is very young and you wish to bring them into service, please consider sitting near the back, so that your possible movement will be less disturbing during the service. You can also hear the service in the East Room, a peaceful 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, Winter 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 are the best ways to learn about us. Please visit Unitarian Universalist Association Of Congregations for additional information.
