The Stepping Stones to Membership
Consider carefully your commitment to the congregation and the UU faith. After learning more about our faith and congregation, we ask that you examine your values and determine whether you can commit yourself to the work of this congregation.
Attend worship services and participate in congregational activities. We gather together as a community and connect with one another by sharing the common experience offered by Sunday services. An important aspect of membership is active participation in the larger congregation. You will find it easier to meet people and feel part of the congregation if you also join in small groups within the congregation. There are many diverse activities in social justice, children’s religious education, men's and women's groups, etc.
Make a financial pledge to the congregation. All active members are required to make a financial pledge to the congregation according to their means. Our primary source of support comes from our members who make financial gifts to the congregation. By pledging, you are demonstrating your commitment to the programs and activities of your congregation; this allows us to budget for the coming year. When submitting your membership enrollment form, you will be asked to complete a pledge form.
Complete an Intent to Join Form and submit it to our Membership Committee Chair. Once you have submitted your enrollment form, we will speak with you about taking the final step of signing our Membership Book in the presence of the congregation.
Sign our membership book in the presence of our congregation. We hope that you will take pride in adding your signature to our beautiful membership book that holds the names of members of this congregation back to 2000. Our congregation holds welcoming ceremonies for new members during our Sunday services several times each year. You will be invited to take part in a welcoming ceremony so that members of the congregation may officially welcome you to the Community Unitarian Universalists in Brighton.
