At the First Unitarian Universalist Church of Detroit, we believe membership begins the journey of a deeper commitment. Newcomers are always welcome in our congregation. There is no formal conversion process, so becoming a Unitarian Universalist is simply a matter of self-identification. Membership is voluntary and does not require renouncing other religious affiliations or practices.
Church membership represents a deeper connection with your faith community. To help you discern whether or not UU Detroit membership is right for you, we encourage you to attend a variety of services, join us for activities and attend an Introduction to UU Detroit gathering. If interested, please reach out to the Membership Committee regarding the next available session.
By-Laws - Article III, Section 1: Membership is open to all interested persons who: are at least sixteen (16) years old; sign the membership book; make a monetary pledge of support and/or make a financial contribution of record. We welcome all who are in general agreement with Unitarian Universalist principles and purposes. No test of belief shall be imposed as a condition of membership.
Joining the church can be done in one of two ways as determined by the potential member with a two week notice to a Membership Committee member:
- At the end of any church service at a ceremony in front of congregation.
- At any time in a private ceremony in front of at least two (2) witnesses:
- Membership Chair/committee member (REQUIRED) and
- Minister or Chair/member of Board of Trustees
All new members of UU Detroit are asked to complete the following forms:mail to church).
