Faith Forward: Inquirers Series

As part of the newly launched Faith Forward program, the Inquirers Series meets from 12:15 to 1:15 on Sundays in the Library. The Inquirers Series is a rotation of 8 conversations about Unitarian Universalist history and practices, and our church. The series is designed for visitors and newcomers seeking a general introduction, yet the sessions are also appealing to veteran members who want more information about our church. Inquirers and new church members are encouraged to attend this first step in our Faith Forward program.

It is best if you can commit to attending all 8 weekly sessions, but the class is designed for you to pick up classes you miss in future rounds of the series. It is fine to begin attending at any point in the series.
