Membership in First Parish

Are you interested in making the First Parish of Watertown your spiritual home? To become a member of the church, we suggest visiting for several weeks, come to social hour, and get to know our present members.

Every week members of the church are designated as “Ask Me” persons, who are in church to answer whatever questions you may have.

Newcomer breakfasts are offered twice a year to help newcomers get acquainted.

The minister also offers a New Unitarian Universalist class, where he will share some of our First Parish history, Unitarian Universalist background, and provide information on what the church offers, and how you can be involved. Although the class is not required to join the church, it does provide helpful background, especially if this is the first Unitarian Universalist church you have attended.

Once you have decided that you would like to make this your Church, please speak to the Minister. The procedure for joining is simple: just fill out an intention of membership card (yellow cards found in the pamphlet rack) and return it to the Minister or the Administrator.

Though there is no membership fee or other minimum requirement, people are encouraged to be generous with their time and resources, because the Church is what the members make it. The Fellowship Committee can assist you in becoming involved in areas of interest to you.

Chairs of all our committees are listed in the Directory of Members and Friends which is available to all members, and committees are described here on the Web site under Committees.

Twice each year at a Sunday service new members are formally welcomed into the life of the congregation and invited to sign our membership book at that time.
