Committee on Mission

The purpose of the Committee on Mission (COM) is to foster the First UU’s mission to “Grow, Care and Act.” ¬†We want to understand the many ways our mission is carried out by individuals, groups and the congregation as a whole, and to recognize factors that strengthen or weaken that work. We promote open and direct conversation, conflict resolution, and problem solving.

Our tools include:

  • Informal conversations with the congregation regarding our adherence to our mission;
  • Conversations with church members, committees and staff to assist with implementing our mission;
  • Ad-hoc projects to meet the challenges of working together in accordance to our mission; and
  • Biennial surveys of the congregation.

Please share your experience and observations about how the church carries out its mission. You can reach us via email or speak with any of the committee members. Look for the bright green on our name tags.
