Becoming a Member
Membership in the Unitarian Church of Hinsdale (UCH) is a voluntary commitment. There is no test of faith, no secret words, no anointing with oil. The only formal requirement of membership is the signing of our membership book. But of course, membership carries with it the pledge to support the church and our community. All members are expected to contribute financially and with their time and talents.
To welcome new members and to incorporate them into our community, we offer “New UU” courses that tell the Unitarian Universalist story, going back hundreds of years; that introduce new members to each other and to church leaders; and that encourage the study of each member’s own faith journey.
These classes are held in the spring and again in the fall so watch News & Notes for upcoming announcements - or talk to Director of Programs Pam Fodor for more information.
Anyone who visits UCH is welcome as a guest. Come back as a visitor and a friend and enjoy the fellowship and enlightenment of our services. Get a nametag and a newsletter, learn about our denomination, and find out about our social, caring, and environmental programs.
New UU Classes
Our Membership Team organizes and leads classes to help newcomers learn about the rights and responsibilities of membership in the church. They share an overview of Unitarian Universalist history along with the details of the Unitarian Church of Hinsdale. Classes are held twice a year with the opportunity to join the church in a Sunday morning ceremony. Cake and celebration follow after the service.
