It could be the connections you’ve made as part of a Chalice Circle. Perhaps it’s the growth and learning you and your children have experienced in our Family Ministry program. It might be that our inspiring Worship and Music renews your hope and nurtures your spirit. Or feeling uplifted after hearing a moving Personal Theology talk. Or simply being part of an inclusive liberal faith community that promotes your values and works to make the world better. Whatever draws you to UUCB, we are glad you’re here.
We are grateful for all of the gifts that people offer our community. Many people give generously of their time by teaching one of our children’s religious education classes, serving on a committee, or helping out on one of our work days. Others share their talent with the congregation by singing in our choir, preparing our altar flowers and decorations each week, and even sometimes making recommendations out of their professional expertise. No matter how else we give back, when we sign the book and become members, we make a commitment to also support this congregation and its mission by contributing financially. But even if you’re not a member (yet) we encourage everyone to make a financial commitment to the congregation to help support whatever it is that keeps you coming back.

The easiest way for the church to be able to plan the yearly budget that funds our programs is by asking everyone to tell us how much they plan to give the church in the next fiscal year. We call that commitment a yearly pledge. Every pledge matters; no amount is too small or too large. Only you know how much you or your family can give. And if everyone gives what they can from deep within, UUCB will have more than enough to do the work we are called to do with one another and for our world.
