Committees

As a congregation-governed religious community, we are individually empowered to help with the work of the church. To that end, we hold a Committee Fair where each committee provides information to the community to enable everyone to find a fit.

The mission of the Denominational Affairs (DA) committee is to connect our church community with the activities of the larger Unitarian Universalist world. In the past we have done this by supporting the annual Association Sunday service, writing articles for the newsletter on Denominational Doings, promoting and publicizing district and national events, networking with neighboring Unitarian Universalist churches and hosting and attending cluster and district meetings.

The Religious Education Committee meets once a month to determine the policies and programs for the children, youth and adults. We work closely with Katy Joseph (Acting DRE) and Kelly Ochoa and Tracy Carreiro (co-YPC’s) regarding any issues or concerns with the programs for the Church school. We also vote as a committee on any matters that may need our attention.

We try to promote family related events during the church year, such as movie nights, game nights and pot luck suppers.  We are involved with assisting with scholarship selection and anything else within the religious education realm.
