Membership

In our tradition, membership requires one simple commitment – a commitment to the covenant to walk together in love. We need not agree with one another. That doesn’t mean the commitment is to be undertaken lightly. Membership in this church is simple because all that is required is to sign our membership book. We hold no creed—nothing need be recited. Membership in this church is difficult because you join a community searching for truth when truth can be elusive. Membership means you are part of a congregation struggling for justice, knowing that the struggle can be long. Membership means that you have joined with a people who strive to live in loving relationship with each other. These are not easy things.

Membership requires contributions of time, talent and treasure. Time cements your connections with the people and the institution. Contributions of talent provide an opportunity for you to grow your gifts, as well as provide for the church’s needs. Finally, regular financial contributions ensure that the church will survive and thrive, able to pay staff and utilities, and grow programs.

Path to Membership

Three times during the year, our ministers offer a Path to Membership class, usually on three consecutive Wednesday evenings or all day on a Saturday. Childcare is available on request. At the end of the class, participants are invited to join the church. However, no one who attends is required to join. And, if you wish to join at another time, you can speak with one of the ministers.

Joining a church is but a beginning. Each time someone else joins, we become a new and more diverse congregation. Please know that churches aren’t perfect. A time may come when the church disappoints you. A time may come when through action or inaction you fail the church. Please know that the covenant between us offers the hope of healing as long as we stay in relation with each other. The power of covenant does not mean it doesn’t matter what happened—it does assert, though, that what is important is what happens next.
