Steps to Membership


Attend our Inquirers Series
The first step is to attend at least three of our Inquirers Series sessions. We hope you are able to attend all of our seven different sessions. Please note that Membership 101 must be one of the three sessions you attend. The online Membership 101 is on the third Thursday of every month. You can send an email to to receive the Zoom link, and other arrangements can also be made upon request.
The Inquirers Series are held Sundays a few minutes after each service and rotate through the following topics:

UU History & Sources
Worship & Liturgy
Membership 101
Justice Advocacy & Community Projects
Virtual Offerings & Livestreaming
Music Program
Meet the Board of Directors & the Healthy Communications Team

The new virtual inquirers series begin in July 2023 and are held on the second Thursday of every month.


Fill Out a Member Profile Form
This two-page form is sent to you digitally and can be filled out online. On this form, we ask you for your contact information, privacy preferences, issues that you are most interested in, and First UU Church groups you may want to explore/join. This form can also be requested by email at


Make a Pledge Commitment
First UU Church asks each member to donate not only of their time and talent, but part of their ‘treasure’ as well. Each year, we ask you to pledge for the upcoming fiscal year, which begins on July 1st, thus allowing the Senior Minister and Board of Directors to create a budget.

Our church depends on the generosity of all its members and friends, and welcomes all pledges! We acknowledge the wide range of economic circumstances members may face, therefore, all pledge amounts are accepted and welcomed. There is no minimum pledge required.

Conversation with the Senior Minister
As a new member, you will have the opportunity to talk to our Senior Minister about what has led you to join First UU Church, and your spiritual journey and growth. This is an informal conversation where you will also be able to ask questions regarding First UU Church. Email or call 713-526-5200 to schedule a meeting. Meetings are available on Sundays, in person and virtually.

As you continue your own path into Unitarian Universalism and decide to join our church community, we hope you find groups that match your interests, volunteer opportunities where your donation of time and talents provide you with a rewarding experience, and where you are encouraged to continue your own spiritual search and growth.
