- About Us
Becoming a Member
When you decide to join this fellowship it will be a big moment for you, and for us! We have a responsibility to see that you are made welcome and you find a place in our midst where you can make friends and continue your spiritual journey.
In return, we ask you to make an effort to become involved in the fellowship in ways that are meaningful for you. When you join, we ask you to join in the work of a committee of your choosing (many hands make quick work), and you support the church as you are able with
your financial gifts.
- Attend an orientation session for newcomers. This is not mandatory but strongly recommended. There will be 2 or 3 orientation sessions scheduled throughout the year.
- Participate in a New Member Ceremony where you sign the membership book and be officially welcomed by the congregation.
- After you have become a member, you will be asked to make a financial pledge in support of the work of the fellowship. Your donation also pays for dues to both the Heartland District and the Unitarian Universalist Association, to which we belong. Please know you are welcome - whatever you can give.
When you are ready to join, contact Gisela Moffit, the chair of the Membership Committee.
Note: Becoming a member is not absolutely required, but we encourage it. Some folks remain "friends of the fellowship" for years, becoming just as involved as members. Remember that only members can vote in congregational elections, and only members are counted by the denomination in its annual survey. The more actual members we have, the more influence we can have as a liberal religious body in our own community and in the world.
