Membership Committee at
Unitarian Universalist Congregation

We need committee members and we need helpers, people who don’t want to commit to being a member but are willing to help with projects or with greeting.

  • Develop our congregation’s growth and commitment to service


  • Are involved in every aspect of our visitors' journey towards membership, beginning with their first visit
