New Member Programs
There is no formal conversion process, so becoming a member of our congregation is simply a matter of self-identification. Membership is voluntary and does not require renouncing other religious affiliations or practices.
Each quarter, the Membership Committee offers orientation classes after the Sunday service for those interested in further exploration of UU and coordinates the New Member Welcome Ceremony for those who decide to join us.
UU Heritage: An Overview Conversation with the Minister
Are you curious or puzzled about Unitarian Universalism? Our minister will answer your questions and help you understand the origins and on-going history of Unitarian Universalism. This is a quarterly orientation class primarily for interested visitors and new members.
UU Community and Connections: Time, Talent, and Treasure
This class is designed to orient guests and new members to this congregation. It provides a history of our congregation, and an overview of the programs, activities and committees of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Augusta. These classes are usually held on a Sunday before the service.
New Member Welcome Ceremony
This ritual allows our congregation to welcome those who have decided to become members of our church family by signing the membership book. The New Member Welcome Ceremony is held during a Sunday morning service, and participation is voluntary.
