Teams and Committees
Much of the work of the congregation is done by all-volunteer teams and committees and their volunteer team leaders. We thank you!
If you would like to volunteer and enjoy purposeful work with good people for a good cause, please contact the team leader for information about meetings, activities, and how to volunteer. Their names are on the team leader list, (updated October 2016) and you can find their contact information through the member directory, or the church office. Or, if you are new to our congregation, check in at the Welcome Table.
Administrative Teams report to the UUCS Board of Directors through a Board member liaison.
Program teams report to the UUCS Board through our Team Council. As head of the Team Council, the Vice-Chair of the Board of Directors chairs their meetings and provides team leaders with a communications pathway to and from the Board.
Committees of the Congregation
The Committee on the Ministry
The Committee on Ministry is appointed by the Minister and the Board. The committee provides supervision, support and advocacy for the ministerial staff and serves to mediate conflict. The intent is to enhance the quality of the ministry within the Congregation. Congregation members, appointed by the congregation, provide insightful planning and evaluation of UUCS religious, spiritual, worship, educational and social justice programs and services. The committee provides recommendations to the Minister and Board for improvement and enhancement of the UUCS ministry to further the accomplishment of the UUCS mission and vision.
- Serve as a support group for the Minister and the Congregation on ministry issues.
- Meet routinely to review, evaluate and plan around religious, spiritual, worship, educational and social justice programs and services.
- Confer with the UUCS Minister.
- Select a committee chair who acts as a liaison to the Board and provides routine reports on the activities of the Committee.
- Provide counsel to the Board on policies and procedures of the congregation related to the ministry.
Committee on the Ministry
The Nominating Committee makes recommendations for Board and other positions. They are elected by the congregation during the annual Congregational Meeting in May. Nominating committee members serve staggered 3 year terms.
This team’s role is to help select and support our intern ministers.
Affiliated Ministries are self-sufficient, self sustaining, affiliated programs of UUCS. They vary in focus, from social justice to spiritual growth.
Of special interest is the Women’s Alliance, which provides fellowship, facilities and equipment, and spiritual, social and advisory services to the UUCS community. It is a separate entity from the UUCS organization and predates the UUCS charter date.
