Becoming a Member

Check out the Pathway to Membership.

The Pathway to Membership is a series of three, one-hour workshops to help you get to know the Society, its staff, and its many activities, while meeting fellow newcomers.

Part 1: Welcome to FUS (First Unitarian Society)
Are you new around FUS? Want to learn the basics and get details on the Pathway to Membership? Join us for an informal gathering where you can ask questions and meet other new and not-so-new folks at the Society. Second Sunday of each month, noon-1pm.
Upcoming dates: September 10, October 8, November 12, December 10

Part 2: Finding Yourself at FUS
This middle session on the pathway helps you explore how you and FUS might be a theological and practical fit. Learn how FUS works and the many ways to get involved.
Upcoming dates: Saturday, October 14, and Saturday, November 18, 11 a.m.-noon.

Part 3: Committing Yourself to FUS
You’ve been welcomed and have attended Parts 1 and 2. Now you’re ready. Come to this final session on the Pathway to Membership to reflect on what it means to become a member, turn in your pledge card, and sign the membership book with other newcomers.
Upcoming dates: Saturday, October 14, and Saturday, November 18, 12:30-1:30 p.m.

Part 2 & 3: Finding Yourself at FUS and Committing Yourself to FUS
Parts 2 & 3 are offered on the same days, so you can come to one, the other, or both. We offer a soup lunch in between from noon-12:30 for fellowship.
Upcoming dates: Saturday, November 18, 11 a.m.-1:30 p.m.

New Member Sunday:
New members are formally and joyfully welcomed into the congregation in a ceremony held during our regular Sunday assembly. New Member breakfast, too! These happen a few times a year. Our next New Member Sunday is December 10, 2017.

Please contact or to get more info about our Pathway to Membership, or to schedule an individual meeting if you can’t make it to the above sessions. Free childcare is available with advance notice.
