Are you a "new UU"?  Considering it?  Or well-acquainted with Unitarian Universalism, but new to UUCPA?  This class is offered once every other month after the second service to answer your questions and help you find your place in the life of the congregation.

Each session is on a second Sunday to enable you to begin with Second Sunday lunch, maybe even try out some of your questions there, and then join us for the class at 1:00.
    * share the spiritual explorations that have brought us to this point;
    * get to know other newcomers, the parish minister and a longtime member of the   
    * learn how Unitarian Universalism and this congregation came to be;
    * get a tour of the nooks and crannies of the UUCPA campus; and
    * ask every question that's on our minds--and even get the answers.

Drop-ins are welcome, but pre-registration is helpful.  Email  or phone the church office at 650-494-0541
