Joining
While children may be dedicated and welcomed into our church community as infants, true membership in a Unitarian Universalist congregation comes when a person decides they are in basic agreement with our UU Principles, and makes a commitment to a particular church. In our congregation, we ask that you think seriously about your decision to join, and consider the following steps to help you discern your level of commitment. 
  • Attend several services over a period of six months to a year

  • Read our newsletter to familiarize yourself with the life of the church

  • Join some church activity or interest group where you can meet others

  • Talk to a member of the Volunteer Co-ordination Committee about where your gifts fit in

  • Attend the “New UU” Newcomers Orientations offered by the Membership Committee

  • Read our Unitarian Universalist Principles and Our Church’s Mission Statement to see if you are in basic agreement with them

  • Read up on Unitarian Universalist History

  • Contribute generously to financially support the church and its ministries

  • Make an appointment to meet with a person on the Membership Committee or the Minister to ask questions about our faith or our church, or ask for a “Church Mentor” 

When you decide to become a member, your decision will be celebrated in a special Ceremony of Welcome for New Members held twice a year. You will be eligible to vote, to chair Committees and task forces, to participate fully in the life of the church and to benefit from its many ministries.
