The role of the Membership Committee is to welcome visitors to The First Religious Society and to formally recognize new members, introduce them to the congregation and assist them in becoming active members of the community. Committee members provide information about the principles of Unitarian Universalism and church programs. Each year, they oversee Neighborhood Sunday, the Circle Dinner Extravaganza (a series of small dinners), and the Newcomers Lunch. In addition, they host a number of potlucks, review advertising, and periodically update the church directory.
Members are elected by the congregation for three-year terms.
