Journey To Membership

November 7, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm

$15

When you decide to join First Church, it will be a big moment for you and for us. We have a responsibility to see that you are made welcome and that you find a place in our midst where you can make friends and continue your spiritual journey. You’ll get acquainted with other First Church newcomers, meet our Senior Minister, the Rev. Jennifer Nordstrom, Membership Development Coordinator, Lynne Jacoby, and our Director of Religious Education, Beryl Aschenberg. You will┬álearn about Unitarian Universalist beliefs, spirituality, and history, our Religious Education and other First Church programs, and the meaning of membership.

In return, we ask that you make an effort to become involved in the church in ways that are meaningful for you. As a member of First Church, we ask that you make a commitment to doing the following:

  • Attend Sunday Services
  • Find a small group here that feeds your soul
  • Join in the work of a committee or team of your choosing
  • Support the church as you are able with your financial gifts

Our formal membership process is that you complete the Journey to Membership series. Once you have completed the series you will be invited to sign the membership book and participate in the New Member Ceremony. From that point forward we will work hard to embrace you and support you as a new member of our wonderful community.

There is a $15 fee for the series. Childcare is available.
