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. During this pandemic time, Zoom Greeters volunteer to greet and share information during our Sunday Morning Worship Services, using the Zoom Chat feature. 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; Ted Allen, Denise Bailey, Art Stukey, and Pam Walker are committee members; Abby Colihan, Judith Hinds, and Dave Peters are associate/emeritus members; and Rhoda Chickering, Beth Merrill, Ellie Peters, and Janet Poeton are a few of our stalwart Hospitality Team Coordinators.
If you are interested in joining the committee, volunteering on our Hospitality Team, or have questions about becoming a UCM Member, email Elaine Ball, Congregational Life Coordinator, or Barbara Thompson, Membership & Hospitality Committee Chair.
