First Unitarian Church of Philadelphia ~ Welcome home!

First Unitarian Church Membership Pathway

Welcome! If you are considering membership to First Unitarian Church, you are in the right place. You may have questions about Unitarian Universalism in general, in which case we suggest you explore our Mother Organization's (The UUA - Unitarian Universalist Association) website, right here,  as well as attend a "UU and You" session at our church, which is held the First Sunday of the Month, right after service. No registration is required, and we provide bagels and cream cheese, all while discussing the history of UU, our church, and how to get involved. 

In addition to UU and You, we offer a "Pathways Class," and a culminating ceremony for those who are ready to join, our "New Member Ceremony." 

We provide childcare for all events upon request, and have accessible spaces. If you are planning on attending a Pathways Class or New Member Ceremony, please let us know your needs in the form below.

UU & You: An informal informational gathering especially designed for those who want to know more about us and our progressive religious movement. This ~ hour-long get-together offers attendees an opportunity to get to know one another and this congregation better, and discusses the story of Unitarian Universalism and this congregation. UU and You occurs on the first Sunday of the month, following service. No registration required, and childcare is available. 

Pathways Class: Are you considering making First Unitarian your spiritual home? Come join us for a “Pathways" class to explore your spirituality and help you decide whether to become a member! We will get to know other newcomers, discuss our spiritual paths and the meaning of membership, and learn more about the history and vision of this congregation and faith.

New Member Ceremony: Are you feeling ready to join? If you have found your spiritual home here, we invite you to officially become a member! Those considering membership are encouraged to attend a UU & You and “Pathways” Class, but all who feel ready are welcome. New members arrive at 10:00am for a reception in the Parish room and sign the membership book prior to the ceremony taking place during service.
