Membership

A representative of the congregation is available in Sandburg Hall each Sunday to greet you and answer any questions you might have. FMI, contact Rev. Lisa Bovee-Kemper.

Our path to membership begins with a two session Beginning Point class. Those who attend Beginning Point will be given basic information about Unitarian Universalism, participate in small group discussions and get to know other participants. Each class includes a complimentary dinner for participants and their children. Free childcare is provided.

ConnectingPoints2013-RopesOnce you have completed Beginning Point and feel that you are ready to consider membership in the congregation, you can sign up for Connecting Points. This one-session class begins with a pot luck dinner and provides more in depth information about our programs, governance and stewardship. Connecting Points is also appropriate for those who are transferring their membership from another UU congregation. Free childcare is provided.

All new members make financial commitment before signing the membership book. Classes are led by our Ministers and the Membership Coordinator, with assistance from volunteers. Information about upcoming classes are posted on the calendar, in the monthly newsletter and in Sandburg Hall.

The Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Asheville is a liberal religious congregation that has served the greater Asheville area since 1950.

At the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Asheville we value our ability to pursue our own intellectual and spiritual paths in a faith community in which we support each other. We encourage our members to embrace the Unitarian Universalist principles by which we strive to live in the world.

Since we are free and open in these ways, we sometimes forget to stress that membership brings with it a definite set of responsibilities and expectations.

To be truly healthy, our faith community needs committed Members. To be truly involved, individual members need to be committed to UUCA.
