Mission and Vision
Grounded in faith, we come together to nurture the soul, inspire hope, and bring into being a more just and loving world.
We come together to:
Create a spiritual community that nurtures and inspires us as we search for meaning in our lives.
Reach out and welcome all who wish to be part of our community because diversity of race, culture, sexual orientation, and economic background enriches us all.
Guide and challenge our children in their lifelong journey of discovery and spiritual growth.
Explore religious and cultural traditions so that we may honor our differences and our common ground.
Take responsibility for helping to solve the problems of our community.
Promote social and economic justice, furthering our work to dismantle racism, homophobia, and all forms of oppression.
Celebrate artistic creation as a spiritual element of life.
Respect the beauty and mystery of nature by actively preserving our environment.
Invest our personal resources to build and sustain this community of aspiration.
Act together to keep this covenant alive.
We are Unitarian Universalists, building upon our heritage as advocates for the rights and dignity of all.
UU Vision of Ministry
Approved by the Board of Trustees 9/15/2020
That all actions executed, including those parts of the Strategic Plan deemed feasible during the time of Coronavirus restrictions, will focus on:
- Caring for the various needs (physical, spiritual, economic and other) of our congregational members and friends as well as outreach to the larger community, recognizing that virtual contact can be successful but does not work for all;
- Advancing racial justice, equity and inclusion, seeking to eliminate the influence of white supremacy, homophobia, transphobia, patriarchy, and other forms of injustice, both within UUCM and in our society;
- Prioritizing Strategic Plan goals that are most important and actionable, with the understanding that this is a time of rapid change, and flexibility and readiness to pivot will be needed.
