We open our Annual Stewardship Pledge season each March... During a March Sunday Service we celebrate the true meaning of why we come to church & why so many of us are socially & environmentally conscientious.
We strive to pledge--not only our financial support-- but time, energy, experience & our creative gifts.

We graciously thank you for your past generosity! Contemplate your current budget & begin to envision your yearly Fiscal & Personal Energy (FPE) pledge, so we may have a balanced budget & lots of wonderful events to share in the future!

Virtually all our operating funds come from the financial support of our current members & active friends! Contemplate the Unitarian Universalist Church of Utica & its importance in your life and in the lives of all who are a part of this wonderful community. Choose a pledge amount which will make you feel really good about what you give.

What we give with open hearts & generous spirits always comes back to us in a variety of wonderful ways...

We graciously encourage all current members & active friends to pledge for the upcoming year.
Please make sure your pledge amount is comfortable for your budget.

Heartfelt thanks for your generosity & support

Becoming a member means you align yourself with the Unitarian Universalist principles, you respect religious freedom & tolerance, & you are willing to find your own way to religious truth for yourself in a supportive community. If you have been visiting us for a while, and want to become more involved with this congregation, you may sign the Membership Book.

The difference between a member and a friend is members have signed the Membership Book, have made a financial pledge, & are committed to active participation in the church. You may already be active with us, but if you haven’t signed the Membership Book, we consider you a “friend.”
All people in the congregation are valued and important, regardless of membership or pledge status. We thank you kindly for your interest & participation!

Benefits of joining the church as a member:
You are able to vote at congregational meetings,
You receive the award-winning magazine, UU World, published quarterly;
You share an institutional commitment with a group of people who care about equality, justice & religious freedom; and
Members are not expected to pay for rites of passage performed by Minister.

Financial Commitment:
We are a self-supporting organization as we do not receive any funds from outside sources. Pledges to support the annual operating budget of the church are solicited once a year & as new members join. Pledges are necessary so the Finance Committee & Trustees are able to develop an operating budget for the following fiscal year (July 1-June 30). At the Annual Meeting, held on a Sunday in June, members & friends review the budget, & members vote on whether or not to pass that budget. All friends & members are encouraged to attend congregational meetings.
We encourage each household to pledge an annual contribution amount demonstrating their commitment to the church & Unitarian Universalism as a whole.
