Path to Membership

The Path to Membership is a different journey for each of us. It begins with getting to know our faith and Fellowship.

We invite you to watch the following video “Unitarian Universalist History Tree” to learn about the roots and history of our liberal faith tradition, as spoken by our Minister, Rev. Stefanie Etzbach-Dale.

The next step on the path is to take our “Getting to Know UUFRC” class, held several times a year. The focus of this two-hour class is to help you get to know our Fellowship in depth. We discuss how and why to get involved, our structure, communication, and the meaning, benefits, and responsibilities of membership.

You may contact our Connections Coordinator, Cindy Johnson, for upcoming class dates.

Becoming a Member: You are welcome to sign our Membership Book at any time after you’ve watched the “UU History Tree” video, taken the “Getting to Know UUFRC” class, and met to have a conversation with the minister.

Several times a year, we hold an Ingathering Ceremony during a Sunday service to introduce and celebrate our new members. It’s a very special occasion and includes candle lighting, a spoken covenant with the congregation, photos and a celebratory cake for everyone following the service.
