For Newcomers

You are invited to sign up at the Welcome Center for the three session Orientation to Unitarian Universalist series. While this series is required for membership in the UU Society of Fairhaven, you can also take it for information purposes.

The three sessions are held twice per year, once in the Fall and again in the Spring  from 12:00 to 1:30 in Harrop Center. Please indicate whether you need childcare. Light refreshments provided. (If you miss a session, you can make it up when the next series is offered.)

Expected Financial Contribution

The Finance Committee has determined at its meeting on March 27, 2016, that the “minimum financial contribution” as required by Section 3.3 of the Society’s bylaws will be set at $79 per member for the 2015-16 fiscal year. Members whom the minister has determined have “special financial circumstances” are exempt from this contribution requirement.
