The Meaning of Membership
The path to membership is a journey toward a deeper commitment to liberal religious values and to this congregation.
Choosing to become a Member of UUCV means you are ready to join us in
- searching for deeper meaning and understanding
- living in loving and covenantal relationship with one another
- growing a vital, nurturing community, and in acting on our values in the wider world.
As Members, we recognize that UUCV is our chosen church home – and thus we endeavor to cultivate a generous and appreciative heart through active engagement in our congregation, attending to the quality of our personal relationships, and contributing generously within our means to the church's operating budget and our social programs. Look for the flyer "Engagement at UUCV" for specific ways to begin connecting.
The Path to Membership
Our Engagement/Membership Team regularly offers path to membership events. On the first Monday of each month, a relaxed gathering titled "Is UU for You?" meets in RE Main at 6:30. Conversation is facilitated, but guided by the interests and questions of attendees. Our Path to Membership class is offered quarterly and delves more deeply into understanding of church membership, UUCV's background and Unitarian Universalism. Please contact our Membership Coordinator at membership@UUCVan.org for more information on social or informal gatherings for newcomers. The most current information regarding Membership activities will be found in our Weekly Bulletin.
