Ministry Teams

We hope you will become part of the shared ministry of First Unitarian Church! Our Sunday morning activities are at the center of our life as a congregation, but most people find that being part of a group or serving on a committee adds another very rewarding dimension to their experience of this religious community.

Committees, covenant groups, performing arts groups, social action groups, and affinity groups are opportunities for you to become involved in the life of First Unitarian Church. Some of these groups provide opportunities for you to be of service to our church, some provide opportunities for you to explore your own personal spiritual journey, some provide opportunities for artistic expression, and some provide opportunities for you to help make the world a better place. And all of these groups offer opportunities for you to build a sense of community with others here at our church.

Four different ministry councils coordinate our ministry. Each of these groups includes several different committees and groups. The four ministry councils are:
