Become a Member
When you are ready, we encourage you to become a member of UUCPA. We ask our members to be active, attending programs of interest, to volunteer, sharing your talents and gifts, and to contribute financial support.
Benefits of membership
Membership gives you leverage: the more members we have, the more influence we can have as a liberal religious body in our own community and in the world. Membership allows you to vote, and to serve on the Board of Trustees and in certain leadership positions.
- Attend our Discovering UUCPA class (optional). We will answer your questions about what it means to be a member, and we will find out more about you and your spiritual journey, too.
- Meet with our ministers to introduce yourself and to clarify any concerns.
- Contact the Membership & Growth Committee, Membership Engagement Coordinator, or Church Office to have your questions answered or to have someone call you.
- Complete the Volunteer/Talent Survey (optional). It will help you find the volunteer task or position that fits you most comfortably.
How to Join
Pick up a membership packet and complete the Declaration of Membership form. You can pick these up and drop them off in the office or at the Welcome Table on Sunday. Or you can download the Declaration of Membership (PDF) and submit the signed form digitally through the church office. At the next board meeting, the Board will affirm your request and you will become a member of UUCPA.
You are also encouraged to complete a Pledge at this time, making a financial commitment to the church. Learn more at:
We formally welcome new members three times a year during Sunday Worship Service. The Membership Development Committee will contact you about the next service.
Your financial contribution
Members and friends of UUCPA make an annual financial pledge to UUCPA, paid all at once or throughout the year. We encourage members to pledge 3-5% of their income. UUCPA appreciates your gift of any amount. Other gifts and bequests are also welcomed. The members of the Finance Committee will be happy to talk to you about how to contribute to the financial support of this congregation.
