We are an active and involved congregation, providing many opportunities to meet other congregants who share similar interests or simply to socialize.
Social activities like Circle Suppers and Women’s and Men’s weekly coffee/breakfasts are great venues for getting to know others. And, for music lovers, joining our Choir provides a weekly opportunity to let your heart soar.
Helping others is an integral part of UUC. We are committed to supporting our shared UU principles through action and service within our congregation through the Caring Network, and in the local community by participating in the Blacksburg Refugee Partnership and through the work of our Mental Health Justice Ministry. Joining Social Action and Social Justice efforts are a great way to become part of the UUC community.
Joining one of the many committees and task forces is another way to get involved at UUC. Members and friends give their time and energy to help keep UUC running smoothly—participating in everything from building maintenance to worship presentation, from education to long-range planning. Learn more about how you can volunteer.
Our annual Auction is just one of the ways that we raise money for UUC and have lots of fun at the same time. At the auction, fabulous dinners and events are offered by members for all to bid on and provide a way to connect throughout the year.
There are many Adult Enrichment Programs offered throughout the year that provide an opportunity to learn and to discuss your thoughts with others. Some are one-time, and some are on-going throughout the year.
Whatever your interests, there are many opportunities to meet others, have fun, follow your spiritual path, and find your place at UUC.
Just as there is no one “right way” to religious truth, in a Unitarian Universalist church, there is no one single path to membership. Each person at UUC is on a unique personal journey. Some newcomers are ready to join the congregation after just a few visits; for others, the path to membership may take a year or more. Still others may choose to become contributing “friends” and not pursue membership at all. Regardless of your path, you are welcome at UUC. If you’ve decided that you are ready to join our congregation, you can review more detailed information on becoming a member of Unitarian Universalist Congregation.
