Visit Our Welcome Center

 

Your first stop as you enter our building is our Welcome Center. Here you will find friendly, knowledgeable volunteers who will warmly greet you, offer a Visitors’ packet of information about West Shore, and help you navigate your way your first time here!  Our Visitors Guide also helps you navigate your way at West Shore.

Coffee Hour

 

We encourage all visitors to participate in our coffee social hour after the worship service. Our hospitality team and the congregation would love to greet you and show you around our beautiful building.

 

Coffee & Conversation Class

 

Intrigued? Want to learn more? Then our Coffee & Conversation class is right for YOU! During this casual meeting, you’ll have an opportunity to get to know what our Unitarian Universalist faith is all about and what our Religious Education programs offer for children, youth, and adults. Most importantly, we look forward to getting to know more about YOU and what you value most in your spiritual community! Childcare is provided for this class, which is generally held the first Sunday of the month after the worship service.

Path to Membership Class

 

If you’re ready to take the next step and explore membership at West Shore, then this class is for you! Held generally the third Sunday of each month after the worship service, this class will cover such questions as: What does it mean to actually “join” a church, and in particular, this one? What are the benefits to you? What responsibility do you have toward the church? You’ll have a chance to hear from Rev. Anthony Makar, Meghan Ross, Director of Religious Education & Engagement, and others who will be glad to answer your questions.  If membership is right for you, you’ll be invited to sign the Membership Book at the end of the class.

Although contributions aren’t obligatory, you’ll also be asked to consider giving of your time and treasure to the church as an enriching investment in your new Beloved Community and the work we do within and outside our walls. Periodically, we also hold a formal Member Dedication as part of a Sunday Service to honor and introduce our newest Members to West Shore.
