Our Fellowship is run almost entirely by volunteers, many of whom serve on committees. For more information (or to volunteer!), send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the name of the committee and contact person in the subject line.
Congregational Care (Joyce Hickson)
The mission of the Congregational Care Committee is to recognize the needs of our Members and Friends whose lives have been touched by painful circumstances; bereavement, various losses and illnesses. The committee also acknowledges and responds to the joyous occasions experienced by Fellowship Members and Friends such as marriages, births, and other significant events. The committee strives to respond with love and compassion.
Building Maintenance (Ron Ussery)
This committee makes recommendations to the Board for repairs to the interior and exterior of the building or grounds. They maintain lighting and signage and oversee the work of contractors.
Design Team (Elaine Chambless)
The mission of the Design Team is to ensure that the visual appearance of our interior and exterior spaces convey a positive, aesthetically pleasing, harmonious environment consistent with our UU values.
The purpose of the Fundraising committee is to raise funds for needed projects requested by the Board and/or the Design Team. There will be two major fundraisers each year. One in the Fall and one in the Spring.
Outreach (Bill Harlan)
Management of social media platforms, our website, and other forms of communication with the community.
Membership Committee (Brenda Stevens)
Greeters welcome Visitors on Sunday mornings. Every visitor receives a welcoming email and handwritten note.
An orientation can be scheduled for prospective members. They will meet with the President or another UU leader. The purpose for this informal talk is to answer the prospective member’s questions, listen to their concerns, and to discuss the meaning of membership with them. A date for joining will be chosen and the individual will be presented to the congregation as a new member on that day.
