If you are interested in becoming a member of First Parish we invite you to let Reverend Art or a member of the Membership Ministry know and we’d welcome you to sign the historic membership book (which dates to 1828). If you are not able to participate in the special Membership service in May you can join the church at any time by following these simple steps below.
Read our Unitarian Universalist 7 Principles found in the Hymnal and in the pamphlet in the pews
||Make a commitment to an annual financial pledge for the support of the vision of this congregation and
||Sign the membership book at any time. You may want to talk at more length about this with Reverend Art, too.
As you know, a financial pledge in advance (instead of putting an anonymous donation in the basket on Sunday morning) helps our Governing Board plan a realistic budget for the year to meet expenses and fund social justice and outreach efforts that we all want to see happening each year. Pledging is a totally confidential process, the collector is the only person who sees this individual information. Kathy Kay is our collector and she would gladly discuss this with you if you like.
Many people like to attend a few New to UU luncheon and / or the more extensive UU and Me workshop series in March or April each spring. These will give you a chance to learn more about Unitarian Universalism and explore your own spiritual path.
We hope you’ll be comfortable with First Parish as a church home for yourselves and as a place for your children’s religious education as well.
