Membership is Belonging
People need a place to be rooted, to work out questions of value and meaning, to have a spiritual life.
Membership begins the process of a deeper, stronger, more meaningful, more affirming experience along our personal spiritual path.
The word religion comes from a root that means “that which binds together.” Religion connects us to each other, and to something greater than ourselves. Being a member of a faith community deepens your religious identity.
Making connections is the essence of the religious experience.
Our faith tradition is not a creed, it is covenant. We are united by our common purposes and intentions. Membership is an affirmation, a commitment, a way of saying: this is my church, this is my community, and these are the people with whom I choose to walk.
How do I join?
On the second Sunday of each month join us for a 30 minute overview of the church called "Just the Basics”. This overview is lead by a church member – just show up to learn more and ask any questions you may have.
When you are interested in becoming a member, you will need to participate in our Exploring Membership class.
The Exploring Membership class is a two-part class, taught by a long-time member, on Sunday mornings from 9:00 am – 10:15 am. The first part is New to UU, a short history of Unitarian Universalism and discussion about the Seven Principles. The second part is Introduction to SMUU Church, a discussion about the various ways we connect with each other in our church community.
Classes are scheduled every two to three months. For further information contact Vickie Trott, Membership Chair.
