10:15 am: New Member Joining Ceremony
First Unitarian has just three criteria for membership:
We offer New Member Signing Ceremonies on the first Sunday of each month. Go here to fill out an online form to indicate your intention to join the church and RSVP for a ceremony. Our Director of Membership will send you information about the ceremony. You will sign the Membership Book, receive information about our Welcoming Conversations, and the tentative date of our next New Member Recognition where you will be officially welcomed by the congregation and invited to a dinner or lunch with other new members from the last several months.

Beautiful, unique gifts for everyone on your list—jewelry, books, photography, crafts and clothing all created by talented local artists! Visit Memorial Hall on Sunday, December 11, 8:30 am-1:00 pm. A portion of all sales go to local animal rescue and welfare.
12:15 pm: Earth Web Monthly Meeting
First Unitarian’s environmental team, Earth Web, meets on the second Sunday of each month at 12:15 pm, both on campus and on Zoom, and all are welcome to attend. This year we plan to focus on water issues, looking at both personal and congregational ways to use our scarce resource responsibly. We will offer opportunities to educate and celebrate around this issue. We will also engage in legislative action on conservation, environmental, and water issues. Please consider visiting the NM State Engineer’s website, www.505outside.com, for information on xeriscaping. Contact Marilyn O’Boyle at email@example.com if you would like more information about getting involved!

10:00 am: Sunday Explorations: Jesus’s Family Tree
In a time when Ancestry.Com is a thriving business, how many people (especially UUs) pay any attention at all to biblical genealogies? Yet following Jewish literary convention, Matthew and Luke provide two very different and irreconcilable versions of Jesus’s family tree, each with rich symbolic meaning. Just in time for Christmas, this Explorations session will take a fresh look at these surprising texts.
Bring your coffee or tea and join us for community and discussion on Sundays at 10:00 am, either in the Arnold Room or via Zoom.
