We invite each person who arrives at ERUUF to embark on pathways of spiritual growth and engagement in our liberal progressive faith. The pathways encourage a personal search for truth and meaning, engage the human longing for community, and ultimately transform us as we deepen in our spiritual commitments and put our UU faith and values into action in the world around us.
Here’s a map of how that journey would look for many of us, with suggested points along the way:
Becoming a member of ERUUF represents a deeper and more intentional connection with our faith community. It also involves discerning whether ERUUF fits with your values, interests and needs.
As a Fellowship of highly committed members, we want you to take some time to visit with us on Sundays to be with the gathered community, and perhaps also participate in activities or events within the Fellowship, as you give thoughtful consideration to the important decision of joining ERUUF. See Pathway to Membership.
Membership at ERUUF is open to all people, 16 years of age and older. Joining involves three important actions:
1. Take the eight (8) Inquirers Series of classes to learn about ERUUF -- who we are and what’s important to us.
This 8-part sequence of classes will take place in rotation every Sunday in the Commons Room. Classes can be taken out of sequence and at any time they’re offered, but all 8 classes form the foundation for membership, and are necessary to join.
Continue on your pathway as a new member with the Beyond Inquirers class series and Roots. You will also be invited to enter into covenant with the entire congregation on a New Member Sunday; the day will culminate with an event held in your honor!
Engage and deepen your exploration as a member by learning about UU Principles and Sources, history, theology, identity, and more throughour Finding Yourself at ERUUF courses. Also, seek out the opportunities at ERUUF to:
