Annual Vision of Ministry, 2021-2022

Each day the ministry of the church should continue to serve the purpose and mission of the church. In the 2021 – 2022 board year, the ministry team’s priority shall be to:

  1. Continue our deep commitment to racial reconciliation. This includes supporting the congregation’s adoption of the Eighth Principle: “We, the member congregations of the Unitarian Universalist Association, covenant to affirm and promote: journeying toward spiritual wholeness by working to build a diverse and multicultural beloved community by our actions that accountably dismantle racism and other oppressions in ourselves and our institutions.”
  2. Grow our capacity for shared ministry to expand our beloved community by developing a path to membership, engagement, and stewardship.
  3. Emerge from the pandemic as strong as possible by critically evaluating what has been learned from our recent experience, including being open to changing formerly entrenched approaches.
