How to Become a Member Here

A family who recently became members.

The First Unitarian Society takes pride in practicing radical hospitality. While other aspects of congregational life can vary, our congregations are all welcoming places for newcomers. You need not be a member of our congregation to participate in most aspects of congregational life, from joining in worship to volunteering your time on a project or in a group that stirs your spirit.

As a newcomer to the congregation, feel free to attend worship services and other events to help you get familiar with the congregation. If you wish to make a long-term commitment to your congregation and participate in the business of Unitarian Universalism, you may choose to become a member.

Unitarian Universalism is organized on the congregational polity model, which gives the greatest authority to individual congregations allowing them to determine their own affairs. This includes setting our own membership requirements.

Here at the First Unitarian Society we welcome your decision to become a member if you have a UU background or have taken the New UU Orientation Class. We offer the New UU class throughout the year, so please take a look at the class webpage to find out more.  If you have questions or concerns about these requirements for membership, please contact the Coordinator of Member Programs,Jeanne Sears. You can email Jeanne using the form provided below, or by calling 233-9774 ext. 116 . To be become a member, you sign the Membership Book. By doing this you join in a deep tradition of individual conscience and responsibility to one another.

Together, as a congregation we will uphold the values of Unitarian Universalism through our care for one another and the world, our gifts of time and money, and our personal search for depth and meaning in all we do.

A chaliceWords Adapted
from Peter Lee Scott

We come together in an attitude of openness - not knowing quite what will happen, yet daring to receive a new idea, a new experience, sustenance for our minds and our hearts.

We come with an attitude of praise, expressing our thankfulness for the good that has come into our lives.

We come with an attitude of humility, knowing how much we need one another, how alone we can be in the world, how vulnerable if we face life solely by ourselves.

We come in the spirit of love, seeking human warmth and fellowship in the hands and faces of those around us.

We come in the spirit of joy, seeking reconfirmation and renewal of life, of love, and of hope.

Interested in becoming a member but don't have a UU background? Take some time  to check out our "New UU" class.
