An Invitation to Consider Membership
Membership in this Unitarian Universalist church is an important decision. We encourage you to get to know our congregation and our church.
You are welcome to attend either the Spring or Fall orientation sessions where you will meet other newcomers and learn more about Unitarian Universalist origins, philosophy, and thought.
When you have been with us long enough to feel that this congregation is your church home and we are your religious community, consider making that relationship official. Become a member at one of our New Member Sunday services, held in the Spring and the Fall. Dates will be published in the newsletter and order of service.
Fall 2013 Newcomer Orientation
Path to Membership
For those who decide to pursue membership in this congregation, this is the path to follow:
Step 1: By some means, acquire a basic grounding in these three areas:
• Unitarian Universalism – its principles, purposes, history and traditions
• The UU Church in Eugene – its history, mission, programs, and members
• What it means to be a member – the joys and responsibilities of commitment
We suggest attending the Newcomer Orientation sessions. UUCE offers a Newcomer Orientation series at least twice a year. You will find these sessions rich with information and opportunities to connect with other newcomers and prospective members as well as with active members and leaders at UUCE.
Step 3: Submit your biographical information. You will be asked to provide contact information for the church database and church directory.
Step 4: Submit a pledge card. You will be asked to complete a pledge card that indicates what you intend to contribute financially for the current year. We believe that a deeply felt commitment to membership implies an active commitment to supporting the functions of the church. Because you may be financially unable, we ask that you please find ways to volunteer time and other resources.
Step 5: Participate in the next Welcome and Recognition Ceremony for new members. This is usually held twice a year at a Sunday service, at which time you will sign the Membership Book. Register for this ceremony at the Welcome Table in the lobby. Please indicate at which service (9am or 11 am) you would like to be welcomed. Also, please give the names and ages of your children who are registered in the Religious Education program.
