Membership Signing meetings are held several times a year on a Sunday from 12:30 to 2 pm. They are announced in the Beacon and The Week Ahead.
At the Membership Signing you will meet with a Membership Team representative and a minister. Lunch and childcare are provided.
Please note that you are welcome to come to any Membership Signing meeting just to listen and hear about Unitarian Universalism and how UUCB operates. You do not need to sign the membership book and become a member. We are glad that you are interested in learning more about UUCB.Continue reading →
Benefits of Membership
Members may call on the ministers for consultations and ceremonies without fee. Those who have been members for at least 60 days may vote in church meetings. After one year members are eligible for election to the Board of Trustees. Your membership includes subscriptions to the UUCB monthly newsletter, Beacon on the Hill; Pathways, our biannual publication of classes and workshops; and to the national Unitarian Universalist Association’s, UU World. You will be enrolled in the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA), headquartered in Boston, as well as the Pacific Central District (PCD) of the UUA. We hope you will be inspired to attend the annual PCD conference and UUA General Assembly.Continue reading →
Integrity of Membership
Participate regularly in Sunday Services. Small miracles happen every Sunday. Your presence is a meaningful addition to this community’s energy and power. A word, the silence, music or a song may be a healing, encouraging or transformative moment for you. Or maybe you will be the one to reach out warmly to welcome someone new, offer an affirming look or say a transforming word to someone. A small miracle may happen through you.Continue reading →
The Meaning of Membership
The work of this church is to create loving community, inspire spiritual growth, and encourage lives of integrity, joy, and service. The members recognize in each other freedom of mind, agree to impose no theological conditions of membership, and respect differences of opinion among us. We welcome to our membership all those who love truth and seek to do good.
Guests are always welcome to participate in our services and programs, contribute in the life of UUCB and draw strength from it. But there may come a time when you feel the need to deepen your connection to UUCB and acknowledge that bond. When you hear a voice inside say, “This is my spiritual home,” and no longer view yourself as a guest here, it may be time to think about becoming a member.Continue reading →
