We offer an Exploring Membership class twice a year, in spring and fall, each year. Inspired by one another, we explore: what we hold sacred, Unitarian Universalism, gems about JRUUC, and the expectations of membership. Attendance in this class does not require you to join, just explore!
Our next class will be:
Saturday, November 5 – Exploring Membership Class at JRUUC from 9:00 am – 2:00 pm, including lunch. If you’re thinking about joining our congregation or simply want to learn more about Unitarian Universalism, the history of James Reeb, and what it means to be a member here, please join Rev. Karen and representatives of the Membership Team for this one-day, in-person event! Registration is required, so contact Mary Wagner or Rev. Karen to sign up or fill out the form here. Registration deadline is November 1.
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.
Individuals interested in joining JRUUC usually attend an “Exploring Membership” class, which happen 2 times per year, once in the fall, and once in the spring.
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.
