Business Meeting

Our ministers want to get to know you. We ask that all prospective members meet with one of our ministers.​


We hold a Membership Ceremony a few times a year on Sundays. On this day new members will sign our Membership Book and be recognized during the service.



Following your meeting with the minister, you will receive a Membership Packet with helpful resources and forms to complete before formally joining the congregation. These include: 

A Pledge of Record

Members of UUSF are asked to make a financial pledge each year. A pledge can be paid over the course of the fiscal year. Your financial support help support the mission and vision of the congregation. Pledges may be paid through our online platform (Vanco) or by check. If you have questions about pledges, donations and pledge payments, contact Laura Ludwig, Director of Operations -

Contact/Interest Form

Prospective members are asked to complete a contact/bio form, which also asks about your interest, skills and talents. We offer many opportunities to both learn and lead.
