Joining the Unitarian Universalist Congregation in Milford is just the beginning of a journey that begins with a commitment to deepening your relationship with yourself, a community of seekers and a tradition rooted in love and service.
1) The first step on that journey is spending some time in community. Attend several worship services. Come to the Community Supper. Participate in a book discussion group. Volunteer to be a greeter on Sunday morning. Get to know us and let us get to know you.
2) Welcome Newcomers –These sessions are held once a month after Sunday Service. Look for dates on the online calendar. This is a great opportunity to spend some time with our Minister and other leaders of the congregation; sharing your spiritual journey, learning more about Unitarian Universalism and UUCM and asking your questions. If you are unable to attend one of these sessions please feel free to schedule a conversation with Rev. Shayna Appel. The best way to reach Rev. Shayna is by email firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 673-1870×2.
3) Signing the Membership Book – Joining all those who have gone before, signing the membership book is what makes your commitment official. Read more about the privileges and responsibilities of membership. You may sign the book any time you are ready; either in the Minister’s Study or during a New Member Joining Ceremony held during a Sunday Service. Just let Rev. Shayna know when you are ready to sign the book. Regardless of when you actually sign the book, we hope you’ll allow us to celebrate your decision to join UUCM by participating in a joining ceremony. Everyone would like the opportunity to officially welcome you.
There will be opportunities throughout the church year to learn more about UU/UUCM history, the organizational structure of UUCM and the UU denomination, contemporary issues and challenges facing Unitarian Universalism offered as part of the New and Not So New series. Look for details in the UUCM newsletter. Sign up for the electronic newsletter at the Information Table just outside the Sanctuary or contact the administrator (email@example.com)
