Welcome to the Unitarian Church of Montpelier. We have been a religious home for open-minded Vermonters since 1864. We are an inclusive congregation welcoming all people-- of all ages, classes, ethnicities, genders, physical abilities and sexual orientations--into our community.
Services are held weekly beginning the first Sunday after Labor day and ending the second Sunday in June. Worship and church school are held Sundays at 10:00am. Braille and large-print hymnals as well as listening devices are available for Sunday services. During the summer months we gather for silent and spoken meditation in the Vestry on Sundays at 10 am. Office hours are Tuesday through Friday from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm.
There is crispness in the air these days that hints at the coming change in season. Children are sporting new backpacks filled with fresh pencils and crayons. Notebooks with pristine pages are just waiting to be filled and the Unitarian Church of Montpelier is gearing up for changes as well. We are making changes to the UCM channels of communication which includes launching a new website - ucmvt.org. As with any new project it might take us a while to get to fresh, crisp, and pristine. In the meantime, we ask you to ignore the dust, excuse our mess, and we thank you for your patience.
It can be frustrating in the midst of a construction project when things are moved about and don’t operate the way we’re used to, but when the dust settles, we think the changes will make it easier and faster for us all to connect with one another and the greater church community.
This is a learning process for us all. What we think will work wonderfully, may prove to be cumbersome. Please let us know how you think we are doing. If there are changes or suggestions that you would like to make, please do not hesitate to share, but remember that we are a work in progress and it might take some time for the paint to dry. Contact Bettie Barnes or other members of the Communications Committee (COM2) for questions and suggestions.
