Membership is a formal commitment of your time and energy to the spiritual life of the church community. People who are new to UU ideals in general, and to the UUCUV in particular, are encouraged to attend New Visitors and Friends Gathering one Sunday each month (check the calendar for dates, carry your coffee in from Fellowship hour), in which congregational leaders and our minister can discuss the congregation and its ideals, history, and plans and answer your questions.
If our Mission, Vision, and Covenant support your values about how to be in community, we hope you will make the commitment to membership.
The formal act of membership comprises two parts. First, identify your own contribution to the community in terms of service and monetary donations in line with your current situation. Second, the commitment is symbolized by signing the membership book, usually as part of a Sunday service, but it can be done privately.
