Membership & Hospitality Committee
The Membership & Hospitality Committee welcomes newcomers and visitors into our UCM community. Pre-COVID-19, committee members would be a welcoming presence on Sunday mornings, staffing the Hospitality Table and providing volunteer ushers, greeters, baristas, elevator operators, and vestry hosts. Twice a year, we facilitate New UU and New Member Sunday programs for people who have expressed interest in our church. In partnership with the Board and Staff, we also maintain and produce an annual Church Directory of Members & Friends.
Our new Five Pathways to Membership program offers virtual and online options for learning more about Unitarian Universalism, and who we are here at the Unitarian Church of Montpelier. Barbara Thompson is our Committee Chair; Art Stukey, Pam Walker, and Rhoda Chickering are committee members; Judith Hinds and Abby Colihan are associate members; and Janet Poeton, Beth Merrill, and Ellie Peters are a few of our stalwart Hospitality Volunteer Coordinators.
If you are interested in joining the committee, email Elaine Ball, Congregational Life Coordinator, or Barbara Thompson, Membership & Hospitality Committee Chair.
