Becoming a Member
Hey! How Do I Become Part of All This Goodness?
If you happen to be wondering how to deepen your involvement with this community of faith, our Pathway to Membership in the UUFCM is a three-step process – an introduction/orientation to Unitarian Universalism* as a faith tradition as well as our particular fellowship history and journey; a session devoted to exploring more deeply the expectations and blessings of membership and participation in “shared ministry”; and finally the “signing of the book” as part of a new member welcome celebration in a worship service. *Even if you have a lot of knowledge about UUism, our first session provides background on the history and culture of this congregation which would be important for an aspiring member.
Welcome to UU
This class is geared to newcomers, visitors, and those seeking to learn more about Unitarian Universalism and this UU fellowship. Welcome to UU classes will be offered every month on the fourth Sunday at 12:15 p.m. Sessions run approximately ninety minutes.
Path to Membership Workshop
This workshop is designed for those who are ready to make the membership commitment to UUFCM. In this interactive session we explore the deeper meanings and expectations of membership and shared ministry; it is a three-hour* session (*depending on the size of the group – may be a shorter timeframe if a small group). The 2016-17 membership workshops are scheduled from 1:00-4:00 p.m. on the following Saturdays:
New Member Celebration
