Hospitality is a vital part of our spiritual practice at Central Unitarian Church. We practice it weekly on Sunday mornings, when we welcome newcomers in many different ways, including:
- A volunteer Welcome Team, which staffs the entrance, hallways and Welcome Center in the sanctuary. They greet arriving visitors and members, help newcomers sign our guest book and answer their questions, and introduce regular visitors to like-minded members.
- Chalice Lighters, who light our chalice to open each Sunday’s worship service.
- Flowers, donated each Sunday by a member or friend of the congregation, often in honor or memory of another.
- Coffee Hour, where members and visitors mingle over refreshments at the end of the service, discuss its content and make plans for the coming week.
Hospitality at CUC is the product of many hands. We encourage regular visitors and members to sign up to join a Welcome Team or provide Coffee Hour.
