UUA General Assembly
General Assembly (GA) is the annual meeting of our Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA). Participants worship, witness, learn, connect, and make policy for the Association through democratic process. That remains true even when we cannot gather physically. The UUA Board of Trustees has passed a resolution making the 2021 UUA General Assembly a 100% virtual eventAnyone may attend Last year; GA had more than 4,900 registered attendees participate from remote locations around the world. Although we give up the face-to-face interaction, we retain our dedication to community.

Circle 'Round for Justice ● Healing ● Courage is the theme for General Assembly 2021. General Assembly is a time to circle ‘round in community. We circle ‘round in care and healing; for liberation and justice; and for love and courage.

Registration is required for All Participants
All participants in General Assembly (GA) programmed events must be registered for the conference. Everyone must also be registered, including program participants, presenters, invited guests, performers, office support staff, relatives, hosts, and dignitaries. This policy is consistent with our principle of equity and avoids arbitrary distinctions.
Registration for virtual GA 2021 is $200 per person.

Financial support for registration as well as a payment plan are available. https://www.uua.org/ga/registration/financialaid/scholarships

GA registrants receive access to all workshops, performances, lectures, and events listed in the GA Program. Registrants will have exclusive access to 2021 online Participation Portal, chatroom, recordings of previous streams, and dedicated support.

Open to the public: General Sessions, Service of the Living Tradition, Synergy Bridging Worship and Sunday Morning Worship will be streamed live and publicly accessible; registration is not required to view these events.

(SOLD OUT) General Assembly Swag Package

UUCH has openings for delegate positions at the General Assembly. If you are planning on attending GA, and would be interested in representing our congregation as a voting delegate, please contact Rev. Jaimie at Minster@uuch.org.

Little Food Pantry Needs YOU!!

Please sign up to fill the LFP. It’s odd, but folks aren’t taking lentils or black beans. The canned black beans are being donated to needy Hispanic families.

If you can’t fill a M, W, F or Sunday spot on the sign up genius, you can always drop food by on T, T or Sat. Thanks for everyone who is lending a helping hand.
