Path to Membership
All are welcome to participate in the church as either a Member or a Friend. Members make a financial pledge to support the church, have a vote in its management, volunteer their time and talent, and participate in worship and fellowship. Friends have not made a formal commitment to membership but actively participate in church programs and give their time and money.
In keeping with our polity, the process of becoming a member officially involves signing the membership book in the presence of a member or the Minister and making an annual financial contribution (we have no minimum requirement) to support the work of the church. We ask that potential new members participate in an orientation class that is offered several times each year to learn more about our church, our history, UU principles and beliefs, the responsibilities of membership, and how we govern ourselves.
Contact a member of the Board, the Minister or church office to inquire about membership and orientation programs. Rev. Robin is happy to meet with you to talk more about your personal spiritual journey and about becoming a member at Beacon UU.
