11/22/2017: Welcoming Congregations Survey

Click Here to Begin On Line Survey

The world can be a difficult place, and even more so for those in the LGBTQ+ community.  As a congregation, we want to ensure that we make all people feel welcome and appreciated.  We can show the community our commitment to this goal via the process of renewing our status as a LGBTQ+ Welcoming Congregation.

We ask people to take a few minutes, after the service or at home, “Welcoming Congregation Assessment of Commitments” to help the Welcoming Task Force identity our strengths and our challenges.  Additionally, please join us in Conversations with the Board, as we discuss LGBTQ+-friendly language.  We will be joined by Amanda Collins, a woman who is new to our KUUF community, and who is transgender.

Please know, as a newcomer and a member of the LGBTQ comity, I have found these efforts to be so comforting and inviting, like a beacon of hope, in a divisive era.  Thank you, for your individual ad community efforts!  —Gina Voladora

Pathway Into KUUF Membership Class

If you are considering becoming a members of KUUF, or have recently become one, this two-session class is for you!

It will be held on Sunday, November 12th and 19th from 9:00 to 10:15 a.m. before our Sunday services here at KUUF in the Elmore Room. (Tanesha – is that the space we have reserved?  If not, please change it to the correct space.)  The class will allows us to get to know each other, learn about the tenets of Unitarian Universalism, the origins and history of our faith, the way it is organized at the national level, how our Fellowship is governed, how to become involved in the life of our church and make new friends, and how the Fellowship can give back to you, enriching your own life.  For some people, the friends they make at this class become life-long friendships.  Scones and coffee will be served.

To register for this class, please sign up by emailing or calling (360) 377-4724.  We look forward to welcoming you into our spiritual community.
