Becoming an AUUF Member
Everyone who abides by the 7 UU Principles is welcome to participate at AUUF. We have about 200 adult "members," along with a few hundred "friends."
If you have attended AUUF for a while and feel connected to our community, we invite you to consider becoming a member. Members have voting privileges and help provide AUUF with leadership and direction. We ask all friends and members to participate with time (teams/committees/dish washing/coffee making, etc), talents (music, art, teaching, etc.), and treasure (pledging) as they are able, because we are a self-supporting organization.
We encourage those considering membership to attend a "Finding Your Way into Fellowship" (FWF) class as a way to more fully understand UU and AUUF history and thought and how it fits into one's own spiritual journey, to get to know other new and seasoned folks, and to discern how/where one wants to serve as a member of AUUF.
FWF classes are offered at least twice a year and are comprised of 3 or 4 weekly sessions. These are not a requirement for membership but are recommended for folks new to UU and AUUF. Details are announced in our weekly email bulletin. After class, participants decide if/when they might want to join.
During a New Member welcoming service (held a couple of times each year) we introduce new members and covenant together as a Fellowship.
