We are delighted to welcome everyone to UUCJ, regardless of race, ethnicity, religious background, sexual orientation, or gender identity. We invite you to take your time getting to know us, our beliefs, and our values before deciding to become a member.

If you feel at home here, we encourage you to contact our membership committee and let them know of your interest in becoming a member. While membership is not required to participate in our community, it offers certain privileges such as having a vote on congregational matters, being able to join the board or become a committee/team chair, having access to members-only online content, and knowing that you’re supporting a community that shares your values and works to make the world a better place.

Membership Requirements

To become a member, you must:

  1. Be at least 18 years old
  2. Complete a UU 101 course or workshop,
  3. Sign the membership book
  4. Submit an financial pledge and traceable financial contribution every year
  5. Abide by the congregational covenant.

Becoming Part of Beloved Community

Once you join, we urge you to deeply connect and participate within your beloved community. We can’t thrive, we can’t fulfill our mission, we can’t be a COMMUNITY without you! We need you to make your voice known through our congregational meetings and votes, help shape our vision and long-term goals, help work towards our mission through committee and volunteer work, and sustain community life with active engagement in our services and events.
