We are so glad you’ve chosen to walk your path with us at TVUUC. Choosing to become a member represents a deeper connection with and commitment to your faith community. Below is an outline of the recommended steps on the path to becoming a Member.

Have questions? Ready to join? Contact Lauren Hulse, Membership and Communications Coordinator, at *protected email* or (865)523-4176 x 105

Step One: Get Involved

You have probably already been attending worship with us, but have you gotten connected to a volunteer opportunity? There are several activities that require little training, and are great ways to get to know our community a little bit better. Check out our Volunteer Opportunities page for some ideas to get you started.

Step Two: Attend our UU 101 Class

Our UU 101 Class is meant to be an introduction to Unitarian Unitarianism, a history of our faith and our congregation, and an orientation to this community and all of the exciting things we have going on. The next dates for UU 101 are listed below, as well as registration information.

UU 101 Classes take place Sunday mornings, 9:30 -11:00, in the Lizzie Crozier French Room. Please see below to register.

Step Three: Complete an Application for Membership and Make Your Pledge

Request an Application in the front office, receive one when you take the UU 101 class, or contact Membership & Communications Coordinator Lauren Hulse at *protected email* or (865) 523-4176 x 105. Complete and return it electronically, or drop off a paper copy in the office.

Step Four: Participate in the New Member Ceremony 

The New Member Ceremony takes place during our Sunday Morning worship service. It is a brief ceremony in which the congregation will welcome you into our community. It is not required, but it is a wonderful time when we recognize those who have chosen to join the church and welcome you to our community.

Step Five: Sign the Membership Book

Step Six: Welcome to TVUUC!

We are grateful that you have chosen to continue on your spiritual path with us. We look forward to welcoming you into our community, supporting you on your journey, and discovering all you have to offer.
