Pathway to Membership

Pathway to Membership


Whether you’re a newcomer to Unitarian Universalism, new to Piedmont Unitarian Universalist Church, or want to learn more about either, we welcome your participation in this class. Led by one of our ministers, you will learn about our community of faith, our history and future, and opportunities for personal enrichment through small and large group interaction.  Discover the many ways to grow through personal involvement, purposeful faith affirmation and community stewardship with a focus on social justice, compassion, and our belief in the inherent worth and dignity of every person. No need to register for the class. Childcare will be available on request. For additional information, please contact


Membership in the Piedmont Unitarian Universalist Church is open to all who embrace our covenant and wish to make this church their spiritual home. Membership implies a willingness to share one’s resources and talents, and gives one the opportunity to determine the direction of the church. The Piedmont Unitarian Universalist Church is no greater than the vitality brought to it by its members. We would love to have you with us.
Steps to Membership:  We welcome into membership anyone 14 years and older who subscribes to the Piedmont UU Church covenant and the principles and purposes of the Unitarian Universalist Association. Before joining, we ask that you attend one or more Newcomer Orientations, and have an informal conversation with the membership team lead or one of our ministers. Questions about our church, Unitarian Universalism, and the responsibilities of membership are welcome at these sessions. A brief ritual for formally joining the church (involving signing a membership card, a pledge card, and the Piedmont UU Church membership book) is usually held every other month. You may join at other times, if you have completed your orientation, by meeting with the membership team lead, or with one of our ministers. Becoming a member of the Piedmont UU Church congregation allows you to vote on congregational matters and elect officers to the Board, and offers eligibility to become a board member. It also involves a commitment of time and a financial commitment to the functioning of the church.
