Church Picnic

Our annual All-Church Picnic is a way for us to celebrate each new church year together with a potluck and traditional picnic games. This year's picnic will be on Saturday, September 26. It's a wonderful time to eat, play, and just be together!



Participants bring a dish to share as well as their own table service. In an effort to be more environmentally friendly, in line with our UU principles, we ask that you bring your own reusable dishes and silverware. The church provides locally pasture-raised beef patties, hamburger buns, and condiments as well as fresh and local grilled veggies. If you are interested in helping with the next Picnic, please contact Connections Coordinator Corie Jason.

Get to Know Us at a Welcome Class!

Would you like to sit down and talk with church leaders and newcomers to learn more about our congregation and ask questions? Are you familiar with our community but want to get more involved? Are you considering membership at our church? If the answer to any of these questions is "yes," consider taking a Welcome or Membership class. Sign up at the Activities Table during Sunday morning coffee hours (after each worship service), or contact the church office.


Welcome and Membership Classes

Welcome to Unitarian Universalism covers a brief history of our faith and the non-creedal tradition. If there isn’t a creed, what do we believe? Whether you’re new to Unitarian Universalism or a longtime member, you are welcome to attend this UU overview.

Sunday, May 3, 2015, 2:30 - 5:00 p.m.
Sunday, August 2, 2015, 11:45 a.m. - 2:30 p.m.

Exploring UUCGL provides a deeper understanding of our particular UU congregation with an opportunity to get to know others exploring our faith as well as leaders in several areas of congregational life. The Membership Committee facilitates conversations with staff and some committee and group leaders. This class will start you thinking about your own faith journey, talents, and interests while presenting opportunities for involvement at UUCGL and explaining how the congregation conducts business and makes decisions. This class is perfect for those who have taken the Welcome class and for Unitarian Universalists who come from another church and want to learn about UUCGL.

Tuesdays, June 2 and 9, 6:00 - 9:00 p.m.

Taking the Leap is for those who have decided to commit to UUCGL as members. Our Senior Minister, the Rev. Kathryn Bert, will lead discussion and ceremony as new members join the church in covenant. If you haven't taken the Welcome and Exploring classes, please speak to Rev. Kathryn before registering.

Tuesday, June 16, 6:30 - 8:00 p.m.
