It is the honor of this committee to select speakers or programming for each Sunday. The intention is to provide spiritual stimulation, education and sense of curiosity along with traditional ritual and music to provide a meaningful Unitarian-Universalist experience.
Social Concerns Committee
We identify primarily local but also global agencies whose missions and values serve people in need. The integrity of the groups as well as the efficiency of contributions reaching their intended recipients is investigated by the committee. An annual budget is portioned by the committee for contributions. We look for ways to take action in our community and to inspire our congregation to support our efforts. Sometimes we offer a church service that expresses a UUA concern; for example, Ethical Eating. Our committee explores ways to educate the congregation about our work. Effort is made to be consistent with the core values of the UUCR and its obligations to the community. We encourage membership, ideas, support and your involvement. We meet as needed.
