There are many ways to offer the gift of your time and energy at UUCW:
Committees and Teams are UUCW’s heart and hands. They organize volunteers to do the work that makes our congregation lively, spiritual and fun. Anyone can join most committees (a few are elected by the congregation or appointed by the Board), but only members can chair them. Most meet monthly, and would welcome you to a meeting to explore their work further. Check the West Wind newsletter calendar for committee meeting dates, call or email the contact persons listed below.
Social Action Council sponsors many different ways to make a difference in the world through social justice and community outreach. We work with partners in the community, including interfaith coalitions. We encourage every member of the congregation to be involved in some way, and social action also is part of our religious education curriculum for children, youth and adults. The Council is made up of a number of subcommittees and projects, but we continually seek to nurture new social justice and outreach initiatives.
Religious Education: In the Religious Education Program at Unitarian Universalist Church West, we strive to guide our children and youth in the liberal search for truth and meaning. As they learn about themselves, they learn to care for one another and for all of creation. Ours is a cooperative program. There is no fee for religious education (RE) at UUCW because each family volunteers in one of three areas: teaching, serving on Religious Education Council or in a support capacity for various programs.
