Please complete this short survey!
Please fill out the Board survey to help us plan for next year by answering:

  1. How can the church best meet your needs?
  2. Who would you nominate to be part of an interim advisory body, to share the decision-making regarding all the ethical and practical issues around when and how to re-open?

PLEASE COMPLETE THIS SHORT SURVEY. Your responses will inform how we, the Board, as well as the minister and church staff, will focus our efforts next year.

Thank you for your prompt response to the survey so we can discuss the results and answer your questions in a discussion forum immediately following the virtual Annual Meeting on June 14th. And, of course, as always, we welcome your input at any time. - Board of Trustees

Summer Services - they are happening - would you like to participate?
If you have an idea for a theme for a summer service, please consider signing up to lead a service - here's the sign-up sheet:  Summer Services 2020

We will continue with online services in Zoom through the summer. In addition to a Service Leader, there will be a Zoom Host. The Zoom Host will start the meeting and manage all the technical aspects of moving through it. If you are technically savvy and interested in learning how to be the Zoom Host, we can train you!

Please consider leading a summer service - we will work with you to make it successful. Once you sign up, someone on the Program Committee will reach out to you to find out what help you need to pull the service together. If you have questions or concerns, please send an email to program.chair@uucsw.org .
