Steps toward Membership
We welcome new members at Second Unitarian because they bring new ideas and new energy — essential to the health and vitality of the congregation. Here are the suggested steps toward membership at Second Unitarian Church.
When You Are Ready to Join
Please contact our membership chairperson at firstname.lastname@example.org when you are ready to join.
Make a Financial Pledge
Decide how much you will give financially and turn in a pledge form within 60 days of joining. The amount should reflect the remaining time left in the church year (July 1 – June 30). In other words, if only six months remain in the church year, pledge only half of what you would pledge in a full year. See Annual Pledging.
Attend a “Pathways” Class
We recommend you attend this Saturday class offered twice a year, either before you join or soon after. During this class, we:
- Explore our individual spiritual odysseys.
- Learn about UU history and our faith.
- Learn about the benefits and responsibilities of membership.
Attend a Recognition Ceremony
This joyful ceremony is presented during a Sunday worship service. The congregation celebrates and welcomes you and other new members into the Second Unitarian community.
If you have further questions about membership, please contact our Membership Chairperson at email@example.com
