Membership at UCBR
How Do I become a Member?
You would naturally want to attend our church for some time and get acquainted with its history and its principles. We are a creedless church which means there is no theological or creedal test for membership. Your signature on our membership card means you wish to enter into a relationship of continuing dialogue on living the spiritual life, a life that serves others in some way, a life that is supportive of a religious movement such as ours. .
If you have been attending the Unitarian Church of Baton Rouge on a regular basis and are considering membership, we welcome you. Membership is open to individuals 14 years of age and older, whatever their ethnicity, race, gender, sexual orientation, physical challenge, or past religious affiliation. The formal act of becoming a member of the church consists of signing a membership card and being welcomed by the Board. Board policies require that you have a conversation with the minister first and our minister's recommendation is that you meet this requirement by taking a Roots Class.
We take church membership very seriously--something that merits a thoughtful consideration of its obligations and responsibilities. Members are expected to be involved in the church program, to attend worship services and congregational meetings as they are able, and to contribute financially to the church.
If you have further questions about membership in this church, please contact our minister, The Rev. Steve Crump. He will be happy to discuss church membership with you.
The Unitarian Church of Baton Rouge Membership Card
The membership of this church is dedicated to support the free and disciplined search for truth as the foundation of religious fellowship; to affirm, defend, and promote the supreme worth and dignity of every human personality; to contribute to the vision of a world community founded on values of tolerance, justice, and peace; to provide a focus for significant ethical and social issues, supporting individual conscience and responsibility as the ultimate moral authority; to form a community of mutual concern, serving the needs of its members, and providing opportunities for personal growth and fulfillment; and to celebrate life by worshipping together freely. I promise to support the church with my presence, my gifts, and my service.
