How to Join

Becoming a member at University is a big step that requires an intentional commitment on your part, but we make the process easy. Although making your vows of membership is the only requirement to join the church, we believe that learning more about the commitment you’re making is vital to your presence here at University. You can do that by attending our Membership Class, which is held once a month and is led by our pastors.

In this class, you will learn about the mission of University and how each person is called to live out that mission fully and uniquely within their own discipleship. Look below for more information on our next Membership Class and registration information.

If you are ready to answer the invitation by taking your vows first, you may do so any Sunday at the end of our worship services. Each week, our pastors will invite anyone interested in joining University to the front. (If you take the Membership Class first, you will be offered the opportunity to join the following weekend as part of a group rather than going up front individually.) As you make your vows, the congregation will also renew their vows of membership with you, promising to support you in your journey.

After the service, you will be led to one of our Welcome Desks, where volunteers will assist you in filling out the appropriate membership paperwork and where you may be received by your new church family.

Membership Class

The Membership Class has been designed for folks that are ready to join the church or for those who are already members but want to know more about what it means. Our pastors will spend about an hour teaching and answering your questions about membership. Lunch is included as part of this class. At the end of our time, you will have the opportunity to join University by filling out membership paperwork. Each person or family will have an opportunity to join with the group at the 11am modern and traditional services the following Sunday.

Please make your reservations for these classes so we can get a better head count for the meal. Childcare is available for these classes with advance reservations made no less than 48 hours prior to class time. (Please make sure to have your child fed prior to the event.)

To register for this event, contact Pauline Rodrigues at   or by phone at 210.696.1033. You may also register for the event on our Events Page.
