Visitors are always welcome at UUCV. Sunday morning worship begins at 10:30am and is a good way to begin to get to know our congregation, our minister and other staff, and to learn something about Unitarian Universalism. If you arrive 10-15 minutes prior to the beginning of the service there will be time to meet a Membership Committee representative who can show you the ropes – particularly helpful if you have a child or young adult who would like to join the other youth.
When our small parking lot is full our neighbors at the Boiling Springs High School have generously offered us the use of their lot. Additional overflow parking is available at the convenience market across the street.
A sign is posted outside the main entry. There is a Welcome Table, staffed by the Membership Committee, where you can get a nametag (if you want one!), sign up to receive our newsletter and emails (again – if you so choose) and ask questions.
The main door is handicapped accessible. We have a wheelchair available for visitors as well as an elevator for access to the lower (classroom/dining room) level. In addition, UUCV’s sound system offers individual hearing devices for hearing impared visitors and large-print “Orders of Service” for those with vision impairment. Our sanctuary is air-conditioned and our entire facility is smoke-free and nut-free.
If you have children who would like to participate in Religious Education let the greeters know and they will introduce you to a member of our religious education committee. You will fill out a registration sheet, have an opportunity to see where your children will be and meet their teachers. Your children and youth start the morning in the sanctuary with you. We offer a multi generational worship for the first 10 minutes of our service and then invite the children to go to their classrooms. If you would like to walk your children down you are welcome to.
Our service lasts about an hour and is followed by a coffee hour in the social hall. During the coffee hour the Membership Committee is available to answer any questions you have about UUCV, our activities or our faith. Please stop by to say hello – even if you don’t have a question!
