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.

4:00 pm: "Widening the Circle" Study Group
WTC was launched in response to the Widening the Circle of Concern Report (2020) to learn how discrimination, especially racism, is embedded in the UUA and by extension UU congregations. Dedicated to promoting diversity at First Unitarian, WTC members seek to learn how to identify and counteract discriminatory structures, ideas, and behavior. The primary focus is to understand the scope of and need for the 8th Principle in the context of the Report’s revelations. To enlarge this effort, we invite new members to join us in planning and participating in various learning opportunities for congregation members and create conditions for a more diverse, welcoming, and beloved community. We meet on the 1st and 3rd Friday of each month from 4:00–6:00 pm. Please contact Linda Skye (Lskye@unm.edu) for more information or for the Zoom link.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like more information about getting involved!
