You’ve attended a couple of services, checked out a group or maybe just read more about Unitarian Universalism and have decided to make it official. Next, attend a Pathways of Belonging session or meet with the Minister, virtually or in-person. In this way we get to know you a little better and learn what brought you to UUFA. This also gives us a chance to learn about what you hope for by participating in life at UUFA.
You will then be asked to review and sign the membership book and the UUFA covenant committing to giving of your time, talent and treasure to promote positive change in ourselves and in the world; to care for each other through deep listening and genuine kindness while assuming good will; to create a safe environment by respecting and trusting one another; to encourage each other to express our authentic selves, supporting, inspiring, and challenging each other’s quest for truth, meaning and spiritual growth; and, to nurture a diverse and welcoming congregation Some liken this pledge to a wedding vow because it is your promise to stay in relationship with the other members of the Fellowship to the best of your ability, and until that relationship no longer serves you. Contact the Membership Team with any questions or thoughts.
Join a social action project?
All UUFA activities are open and welcoming to all. Look at the upcoming happenings. See something that interests you? Just show up at the meeting! Look for a link to the virtual meeting on the calendar. Would you like to have more information about the meeting or project before you attend for the first time? Contact the person listed or the office, 706-546-7914, ext. 5.
Sign a child up for Religious Exploration?
On Sunday mornings, you may register your child for the day at the RE table in the Fellowship Hall.
As a newcomer, you aren’t expected to do anything more than nurture your own spirit! Participate in meetings and events as you see them on the news page or calendar. For those who wish to share more of their time and talents sooner, contact the volunteer coordinator or call the office (706-546-7914, ext. 5).
Arrange for pastoral care for someone who’s sick, grieving, or in other need?
