Communications

Keeping everyone “in the know” is a big job in a congregation like ours. This group encompasses several areas:

  • Audio-visual technology including media support for our services
  • Internal communications efforts such as our newsletter, email bulletins, and flyers
  • External communications including, marketing, public relations, and press releases

 

 

Finance & Planning

This group helps to envision the future of our church and establishes the steps to get there. Activities, such as fundraising, are used to keep our church fiscally healthy. The chair advises the board on financial matters, prepares annual budgets for presentation to the congregation, and oversees the budget during the fiscal year.

The treasurer and the chair of the Endowment Fund are also members of this ministry.

 

 

Membership Ministry

This group welcomes all visitors and facilitates the path to membership in or friendship with the church. The group provides mentoring, orientation, support, and assistance to the minister by administering care and crisis support as needed.

The Membership Ministry also encompasses hospitality, which embodies our caring and welcoming spirit, by greeting members and guests on Sunday morning as well as lending a hand with coffee, tea, and refreshments.

 

 

Ministry of Religious Education

This group provides opportunities for individuals as well as families, adults as well as children for spiritual growth.  Religious Education provides a place for all of us to learn and develop our individual faith and religious practices based on Unitarian Universalist practices and principles.

 

 

 

Sacred Spaces

Many of our members and guests find the divine as they interact with nature. Participation in this group may include

  • Planning development of green spaces on the church grounds to connect with nature, including landscaping, parking lot expansion, and more

  • Keeping our church welcoming and safe by repairing, painting, and maintaining the property

  • Keeping our commitment to the Earth in action by planting and caring for flowers & plants, landscaping with native plants, installing rain barrels & beehives, and more


Worship & Music Ministry

Not only does this group plan our services and sermons, it also integrates music and song into the life of the church.

 

 

 

Membership Care

This group is comprised of people who demonstrate care & compassion by providing support for members and visitors who are in need.

 

 

 

Leadership Development Committee

Recognizing talent and encouraging involvement is vital for growth. This group:

  • Provides opportunities to serve the church by matching members with non-elective positions

  • Offers nominees for open positions to be voted on at the annual Parish Meeting

  • Counts votes after the Parish Meeting
