New Member Sunday – Sunday April 22


New Member Sunday
April 22 @ 10 AM

On Sunday, April 22 during the 10 am service, those wishing to join as a member of the congregation are invited to participate in a New Member Ceremony as part of the service. Participation in a new member ceremony is not required to join the church.  What is required is signing the Membership Book and making a “financial contribution of record” (which means participating in the annual pledge drive).

If you are interested in joining the church, whether you want to participate on April 22 or not, please CLICK HERE to let us know.

We Welcome You and Invite You to Join a Unique Community!

At UUCW, we welcome you to our unique community. While there are no formal tests for becoming a member of UUCW, there are a few steps you might consider:

  • Getting to know us by attending worship services, fellowship events, classes and other programs.
  • Enrolling your children in our Religious Exploration program.
  • Visiting the Member Services information table in Fellowship Hall after services to pick up brochures, find out about denominational affairs, receive our newsletter, and request a name tag.
  • Chatting with members of the Member Services Team.
  • Completing a shared ministry form so you can more easily and appropriately share your gifts with the church.
  • Attending a New-UU class to meet other newcomers and learn about Unitarian Universalist history and principles, our ministry programs, and the responsibilities and benefits of membership.
  • Setting up an appointment with the minister.
  • Signing the Membership Book.
  • Discussing with us the amount of financial support you are able to give the church.

Why Join?

  • Joining the church is a formal sign of commitment to our community. With it goes an agreement of both service and financial support, as you are able, to our community. You will also receive a subscription to UU World magazine.
  • Joining means lending your energy and talents to grow our young people, care for our elders, fight for our beliefs and passions, laugh together, cry together, and mark our transitions together.
  • Joining buoys and strengthens the community — and that means each and every member — and lets us each know that we share a common bond.
  • Being a member of UUCW also allows you to vote on concerns vital to our church community. This includes approval of how we spend our money, leadership in this community, and important structural and institutional questions.

Thank You!
