community

First Unitarian Society is a busy place. Since we’re a large community, figuring out where to jump in can sometimes feel overwhelming. The good news is, it doesn’t have to!

Throughout the week we have opportunities to get connected through spiritual practice, lively discussion, and volunteering. Whether you’re interested in finding companionship on your spiritual journey or simply hanging out and socializing, our community is full of potential.

Check out our Group Finder, where you can organize your search by keyword, meeting time, or interest. Our Director of Membership & Adult Programs, Janet Swanson, is also always available to help you narrow your search.

Getting the Word Out @ FUS:  If you’re looking for ways to share your FUS event with other members or the Madison-area community, we’ve created an easy guide you can view here.

Lend a hand

Looking to lend a helping hand? FUS offers a wide variety of ways to volunteer: from helping out in worship to preparing meals with the Food Haulers to knitting the shawls you see folks wearing in services. Volunteering at FUS is a wonderful way to meet people while lending your time and expertise in ways that benefit our community and beyond.

get involved

There are lots of ways to dig deeper within the Society. In addition to our small groups, we have myriad opportunities for discussion and engagement at varying levels! If you can’t find what you’re looking for in our group finder, consider starting your own group or contact our Member Engagement Coordinator, Jeanne Sears.

seek support

Challenges are inevitable in life. Some are manageable. Others can leave us feeling alone and overwhelmed, or demand great contemplation. Lay Ministers are available to offer personal care through support groups that provide a space of welcome, shared experience, and healing in community. Find a support group here.
