Becoming a Member
Are you thinking about becoming a member of St. John’s Unitarian Universalist Church? Throughout the year we offer classes to those interested in becoming a member. During these classes, you’ll learn about Unitarian Universalism from our minister and learn how to become a contributing member of our community from board members, team leaders or involved members. We strongly encourage you to attend our introductory classes. Attend Sunday services to get to know us better. Take your time to make sure St. John’s is a good match for you.
St. John’s is a warm, vibrant community offering you a place to learn, grow and develop spiritually. We offer classes in a wide range of topics, discussion forums before Sunday service, and opportunities to engage in social justice activities. There are a variety of social groups where you can get to know members and friends of St. John’s.
Membership has many benefits. Ninety days after signing the membership book you may vote in congregational meetings or run for elected office. For each member St. John’s pays dues to the Unitarian Universalist Association. Each quarter members receive the UUA’s magazine UU World and you have the right to attend the UUA’s annual General Assembly.
Our expectation is that you will contribute your time, talents and resources to St. John’s as best as you are able. Some examples are helping set up or clean up coffee hour on Sunday mornings, watering gardens during the summer or singing in the choir. During the annual pledge campaign, we’ll ask for a financial pledge to the best of your ability in support of St. John’s programs, building, and staff.
If you’re ready to become a member of St. John’s, contact our minister, the Rev. Mitra Jafarzadeh, or Debbie Combs, membership coordinator at email@example.com.
