“Exploring Membership” class happens 2 times per year, once in the fall, and once in the spring. Our next class will be in the Fall of 2024. 

  • Anyone new to JRUUC, long term friend, or even members wanting to know more about JRUUC and UU history are welcome to attend. To sign up for a membership class or to get more information about joining the congregation between classes, contact Mary Wagner or Kelly Kearns or fill out the form here Attending the class provides you with information about JRUUC and Unitarian Universalism and does not obligate you to join the congregation.

Adults who feel in sympathy with the purposes and programs of JRUUC can sign the official Membership Book at any time. There is a bi-annual Joining Service to honor our new members. The next Joining Sunday will be April 7, 2024. Individuals interested in joining congregation usually attend an Exploring Membership class to learn more about the congregation and Unitarian Universalism.

The life of each JRUUC member can be enriched by the privilege of being a steward of the congregation, thereby bettering our society, our fellow congregants, and ourselves. Supporting our Unitarian Universalist principles is, indeed, a privilege. Members are stewards of our Beloved Community by . . .

  • Making a financial commitment / contribution of record
  • Participating in worship services
  • Voting at Congregational Meetings
  • Serving on the Board of Trustees, a Committee, or Task Force
  • Volunteering in the Religious Education program or other area
  • Supporting Reeb with Talent, Time, and Treasure

Book-signed members receive a copy of the UU World magazine sent to their house, so it’s important to update mailing addresses with the JRUUC Office.

Additionally, JRUUC contributes to the wider UU movement by sending money to the Unitarian Universalist Association and to the MidAmerica Region on behalf of each member. Fair Share contributions for 2016-2017 are $60 and $25 per book-signed member, respectively.
