UUCW is a strong and lively congregation -- living our mission today and planning for a great future! That’s what Build the Vision is all about. It combines the heart of our comprehensive Vision 2020 Long Range Plan with the soul of the innovative Build 2020 conceptual plan we developed during our Holistic Study coordinated by Workshop Architects.
The Build the Vision Campaign has two important purposes:
This is our Annual Pledge Drive to support the church Operating Budget for the 2017-18 ﬁscal year. The Operating Budget pays for building operations, program costs, staﬀ salaries, and everything else that is needed to run UUCW for a year. We're asking everyone to increase their Operating pledge by 3% this year, if possible.
Build the Vision is also a church-wide eﬀort over the next ﬁve years to raise the money we need for our Build 2020 Capital Fund. Build 2020 will allow us to make changes in our facilities to address important congregational needs.
View “For the Future!” Our inspiring Build the Vision video that debuted on February 26.
Church members have received a Build the Vision Campaign Packet which offers much more information about our Pledge Drive and Capital Campaign goals, our Build 2020 plans, and recommended giving levels. You may also access the Campaign Packet materials, including a Pledge Form, by clicking the images below. Members are encouraged to return their Pledge Forms by March 12.

Imagine the Unitarian Universalist Church West of the future: a congregation with a building as open and flexible as our theology, as welcome and warm as our spirit, a building with mechanical systems that are healthy and efficient, office and meeting spaces that help our ministries hum along, and a floor plan accessible to everyone! We're describing UUCW’s Build 2020.
For the past two years, UUCW has engaged in a Holistic Study process to discern what needs to happen to transform our building into one that more fully supports our ministry and mission. We worked with Workshop Architects on that process, which resulted in a preliminary architectural plan. Click here to view the Holistic Study presentation.Read more...

The Rev. Suzelle Lynch
The challenge is always before us - when to hold on, and when to let go? We know that all growth involves change, and yet it is our human nature to prefer the comfort of the known. Today we explore this paradox in keeping with our Soul Matters theme, " We Are a Risk-Taking Community."
