Starting Point


Starting Point is a Journey to a Deeper Commitment. We hope that your relationship with Chalice will be spiritually, intellectually, and emotionally rewarding.

If you are ready to join our congregation, it’s easy to become a member. Our path to membership includes four steps:

  • To attend our “Starting Point” classes which provide an introduction to the congregation and to the principles and history of Unitarian Universalism.
  • To sign our membership book and thereby declare yourself a part of the community.
  • To pledge a financial contribution to the church. The amount is your personal decision. There are no minimums.
  • To attend to your spiritual practice, through Sunday services, affinity or small groups, service on committee, and outreach opportunities.

You may also request a private meeting with Reverend Nica if you’d like to discuss any aspects of membership further. Please email

We are pleased you have chosen to worship with us, and we invite you to participate in our programs and activities, whether or not you are ready for full membership. When you are ready, membership will be a natural step, a way to express your joy in – and responsibility for – this faith community.
