Newcomer Class Series

Next newcomer series — Sundays for six weeks | 11:30-12:30pm
Dates TBA

Are you a newcomer that’s looking to get more connected with others? Are you interested in learning more about UUCC and Unitarian Universalism? Join staff member Sara Davidson (and other staff members and congregants) for a  six-week, drop-in newcomer class series. Each week we’ll gather from 11:30 to 12:30pm to explore a new topic together.


Becoming a Member

The act of becoming a member consists of signing the Membership Book in the presence of Director of Communications & Group Connection Sara Davidson, minister, or a member of UUCC’s Board of Trustees. You are welcome to sign the book in-person before or after service on a Sunday, or arrange another time and place to sign the book.

Signing the book allows you to make an explicit commitment to participate as a member of our spiritual community, uphold UUCC’s mission and values, and share your time, talent, and resources as you’re able with others in a life-long spiritual journey founded in Unitarian Universalist values.

Members are eligible to vote in congregational meetings — including the Congregational Annual Meeting, held in June — which shapes the future of UUCC, and are expected to make an annual financial pledge. Annual pledges from members and others are what sustain our UUCC community. Every pledge — no matter the amount — matters and helps everyone feel ownership of this community we are building together. If you’re not in a place to offer an annual financial pledge, simply let us know so we can give you a waiver for the year.

If and when you feel ready to make this commitment, we invite you to connect with staff member Sara Davidson: sara@uucolumbia.net.


Expectations of Membership

As members of UUCC, we will, to the best of our abilities and according to the dictates of our consciences, contribute to this congregation financially and with our time and energy, attend services regularly and otherwise participate in the life of this congregation, and through this congregation, enrich ourselves spiritually.
