Becoming a Member

We are glad that you are considering membership with the Unitarian Universalist Church in Livermore! Membership is the beginning of a life-changing journey, where you are invited to live more deeply, faithfully, and generously. As we begin this journey together, members have certain responsibilities to the congregation and to one another. They are best fulfilled by:

 

1. Regular attendance at worship, committing to come each Sunday possible. Weekly worship cements the bonds of community, and keeps our attention directed to our highest values, while nurturing our spirits.

 

2. Participating in regular activities and practices that deepen your faith. This can include developing personal spiritual practices, engaging in social outreach, and participating in adult faith enrichment.

 

3. Making financial contributions that meaningfully support the mission of the congregation. This is accomplished through pledging. The average pledge is $1,800, and many people strive to give 5% of their income.

 

4. Contributing time and talent. Congregations work because their members find ways to give of themselves, whether through singing, financial management, educating children, sharing their passion for social justice, organizing, cooking, or greeting—the list of tasks goes on. Finding ways to give back nurtures your soul and supports your growth.

 

If you are contemplating membership or hoping to become better connected with the congregation, our minister welcomes a conversation. We are grateful that you are considering our church as a spiritual home.
