Membership Development Workshop Series

COVID UPDATE – All membership classes have been suspended until further notice. For more information about our congregation or UU in general, please email the Program Administrator at uuchnc@gmail.com

UUCH is committed to providing the information and skills needed to help members and friends as they take on increasing levels of commitment and responsibility. We encourage you to attend any workshop, regardless of how long you’ve been a member, so we can provide opportunities for bringing newer and more established UUCHers together for open exchange on these topics. UUCH Basics and UUCH Churchworks are 90-minute Sunday afternoon sessions with childcare provided.   UUCH Core Leadership is a 5-session class. Please check our e-news or Sunday news bulletin for session schedules.
UUCH Basics: What it means to become a member of UUCH, including the rights, rites, and responsibilities of membership.

UUCH Church Works: Using the SHAPE concept (spiritual gifts, heart, abilities, personality, experience), this workshop will help members and friends explore the gifts we all bring to our community and how these gifts can be nurtured at UUCH.

UUCH Core Leadership: A workshop designed to help leaders “move to the balcony” to gain perspective on congregation-wide leadership, as well as having a deeper understanding of our UUCH governance structure.

Study Groups and Classes

Faith Journeys Study Group

COVID UPDATE – this class is meeting via Zoom. If interested, please email Program Administrator at uuchnc@gmail.com for more information.

Faith Journeys meets on the 1st and 3rd Tuesdays of each month throughout the year, from 7-8:30 pm. We have a core group committed to extended study, but anyone may attend particular sessions, or join the core group at any time. The group is intended to deepen our understanding and appreciation for various religious traditions. Upcoming topics and texts will be listed in our weekly e-news and Sunday weekly news bulletin.

Soulful Circles

COVID UPDATE – this group is not meeting at this time. If interested in being notified when they resume, please email Program Administrator at uuchnc@gmail.com.

Often known as covenant groups or chalice circles in other UU congregations, our “Soulful Circles” meet twice monthly from September through mid-June, and require a commitment to attend most sessions for the duration of that time. Circles spend one meeting each month discussing our congregation’s monthly theme, and choose their own topic for the 2nd meeting that month. The groups focus on developing deep listening skills and building relationships between participants. Each group remains open to new people throughout the church year, and is led by one of our trained facilitators. Contact Program Administrator if interested in participating.
