Membership at UUFE
Most Unitarian Universalist (UU) members, outside of New England, were not born to this faith. For most of us it is a faith which developed during many years of individual seeking. We welcome you as a friend, to continue your search in fellowship with other seekers. Membership in this church is open to any person who wishes to pursue the UU practice of religion. To join, you sign our membership book.
The ease with which a person may join a UU church speaks to our intellectual freedom and our universalism, but not to our commitment. To support what we affirm and believe as a liberal religion requires our skill, our labor, our care for one another, and our money. Our membership denotes a willingness to be identified with Unitarian Universalist principles and a commitment to them with both speech and action.
The Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Elkhart (UUFE) is democratically operated. The members of the Board of Trustees are elected at our annual congregational meeting. They meet monthly and the meetings are open.
The Board of Trustees are liaisons to the standing committees, which include: Lifespan Religious Education (both children and adult), Building and Grounds, Worship and Arts, Stewardship, Congregational Care, Social Justice, Membership, and Endowment.
Our church staff consists of a Minister and a Director of Religious Education.
UUFE is financially self-supporting and entirely dependent upon the contributions made by its members and friends and through our fundraising events.
