Membership in UCCA is open to anyone who freely chooses to join with us and share in our ministry. We do not discriminate in any manner.
The UCCA has chosen to use a “Dues/Donations” revenue stream, rather than the traditional “Tithes/Offerings” format. We hope this will better meet the financial demands we anticipate and will allow us to provide those Ministry Programs and Services we believe are needed and desired by our Members. Also, it is our hopes that by initiating a set financial commitment from our “Members” they in turn will feel more personally “invested” in our work, our faith, and the UCCA.
The dues/donations listed herein are considered a minimal investment by each Member, further financial contributions are a choice left up to each Member. Such contributions are needed and greatly appreciated by the UCCA.
The UCCA – General Council may from time to time make revisions to this document at the discretion of the GC. However, no actions regarding Dues/Donations shall be retroactive.
The following UCCA Members Categories are open to all who meet the criteria specific to the chosen category.
