Becoming A Member

Our congregation is composed of members (who can vote on congregational business), and “friends” (who cannot). If you are new to Unitarian Universalism and interested in becoming a UUUC member, we encourage you to start by becoming a “regular” at our Sunday services. This will enable you to get to know people in the congregation (and vice-versa) and to see how things work. Next, we would encourage deeper involvement in other congregational activities such as a discussion group or our Adult Enrichment Opportunity Program. We also recommend participation in one of our Universalist Unitarian Orientations.

 Once you decide you want to become a member, let someone on the Membership Committee know. If it seems like the time is right, you will then be asked to do three things: (1) fill out a pledge form (which is a requirement of membership as defined in our bylaws), (2) sign our official Membership Book, and (3) participate is a New Member Welcoming Ceremony during a later Sunday service.

If you already have a UU background, please let someone on the Membership Committee know and we will take prompt action to get you signed up at UUUC.

We encourage everyone in the congregation, whether member or friend, to become deeply involved by doing things like joining a committee, singing in the choir, speaking at a Sunday service, volunteering to help with community service projects or other congregational activities, etc. Lastly, we encourage all UUUC attendees to seek ongoing spiritual growth through, as our Forth Principle says, “A free and responsible search for truth and meaning.”

Whether you are new to the Unitarian Universalism or have been a member of another UU congregation, we welcome you to join our Church community.
