What You’ll Find at Neshoba
You'll find fun, casually-dressed, caring people and hear a relevant, creative worship service at 11 a.m. on Sundays. This is a place where people from all backgrounds and walks of life come together to grow spiritually and connect with others.
What Can I Expect?
Visiting new places can take us out of our comfort zone. We want to make your first visit comfortable by helping you feel as informed as possible before you even get here! Here's some helpful information on how to get through your first Sunday morning smoothly:
Children six weeks to four years old can be checked into the nursery when you first arrive. There will be volunteer “Greeters” in the lobby. Ask any questions or get more information about specific events or educational offerings that might interest you. We'll be sure to help you out in any way that we can!
The lobby is the place to enjoy a cup of Fair Trade® coffee and mingle with other friendly faces before and after the service.
Look down the hallway, and you'll see classrooms for religious education and the restrooms.

How To Get Involved
Neshoba is a place where people with open minds of all ages and backgrounds come together to connect with others and work to make the world a better place. There are many ways to get involved at Neshoba: the 11 a.m. Sunday worship service, small groups (we call them “Chalice Circles”) and our service projects, social events and educational classes. Each one produces a different but necessary facet of a healthy church experience.
“Roots” is a four-part series of classes facilitated by the minister and congregational leaders. It covers the history, principles, and traditions of Neshoba and the Unitarian Universalist movement. Old and new members are encouraged to take a Roots class.
A great way to connect with others is to get involved. Joining a small group, participating in events/classes and finding a place to serve are just a few of the ways that you can form a connection with others and be a part of making Memphis a better place for people who value freedom, reason and tolerance.
What Do You Have for Kids?
Our Religious Exploration Program provides age-appropriate classes on Sunday mornings for kids. These classes are designed to teach children about liberal religions in a way that is fun, interesting and relevant to their stage of life. Older children attend the first part of the worship service then go to their classroom with their teacher. Children can be picked up when the service concludes.
