What is Membership?
Our church is supported by a diverse community of people. Many of these people choose to become members of the church because:
Members of First Universalist are those who realize that our faith is built on a tradition of strong congregational involvement and the vision of our lay leadership. This community is a spiritual home for them and their families and they enjoy being able to say, “This is my church!”
“Live together, talk together, walk together. We are all One."
The Benefits of Membership

We hope that you will allow yourselves to know and to be known, to minister to and to be ministered unto, to love and to be loved, by this community."
