Pathway to Membership Class
Are you new to The U and interested in membership? We are so glad you have found your way here! Join us for our Pathways to Membership Event! Now is the time to consider deepening in your understanding of the intricacies of the Unitarian Universalist tradition as well as the complexity of our congregational life. This class is your path to becoming a member and joining UUCM. Bring your questions and your hopes. Building community takes intention. This is one important step on that intentional path. For more info, please email Danielle Carlo

New Member Signing Ceremony
Those wishing to join UUCM are invited to contact Rev. Anya. Membership at UUCM is available to those who have participated in the Pathways to Membership class or another comparable learning experience. We also extend an invitation to those who have joined UUCM but have yet to be recognized in a public ceremony.

Membership Committee

The Membership Committee is changing the way we work! We will now have specific teams that will engage in different aspects of membership so that we can better serve the congregation. Instead of the entire committee having a hand in every aspect of membership, each team will be responsible for smaller tasks. For example, if you only enjoy planning events that can be your main focus while another team works with new members. Help us increase our membership, diversify our congregation, and plan great events for UUCM! Sign up today by contacting our Membership Committee Chair Nancy Silverman
