On the individual level, membership in First Universalist calls us to grow. It encourages us toward ongoing growth that lasts a lifetime and helps us become the best human being we can be.
On the community level, membership calls us to join in covenant with other members of First Universalist and other Unitarian Universalists everywhere. A covenant is a sacred promise, a mutual agreement about how we will be together in our congregations and how we will be in the world.
When we join as members, we enter a covenant of trust that we will care for and help one another, that we will work together towards our shared mission and vision. This truly matters, and we are so glad you’re here to learn more about membership at First Universalist.

What is Article II?
Article II is the section of the Unitarian Universalist Association bylaws that has the language at the heart of our faith for many of us as UUs. It includes the seven principles and the six sources of the faith. It also contains the purposes of the UUA as an organization, a statement of inclusion, and a section on freedom of belief.
Proposed Changes to Article II
Article II of the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) Bylaws, Principles and Purposes, is the foundation for all of the work of our UUA and its member congregations and covenanted communities. In June 2023, delegates from UU congregations will vote whether to advance the proposal for a year of study and discernment before a final vote that would be held in June 2024.
