Meaning of Membership
Our members share in a search for truth and meaning and respect and support one another. This means that every person helps shape, expand, and contribute to the shared mission within our community and out in the larger world.
Benefits of Membership are the following: we offer opportunities for growth; engagement and acceptance; religious exploration for children and adults; and the support and comfort of an open and caring community.
As a member of a Unitarian Universalist congregation, you are able to participate in group decisions, shape the life and mission of the Meeting House through your commitments, and identify with a community that challenges and encourages its people to practice their highest ideals.
Joining UUMH is a significant step in your spiritual journey. Our members commit to deepening their spiritual growth through exploration, teaching, education, service, and pursuit of justice in the broader community.
The Pathway to Membership
Join us for services, share coffee, and talk with members, explore our website uumh.net to learn more.
Get Involved! One of the best ways to meet people and feel like you belong is to get involved. For example, small ministry groups, candlelight dinners, potlucks, and Learning for Life classes provide excellent ways to meet other members and have fun. These activities are open to all, regardless of membership status. You will find that most of our members participate in one or more activities that support the life of our UU community or provide outreach to the world beyond.
Engage in new member orientation discussions with our minister, Rev Tracy Johnson, and key UUMH leaders to learn more about this congregation and the Unitarian Universalist tradition.
