When a church joins the Unitarian Universalist Association of Congregations, we agree to affirm and promote “…the use of the democratic process within our congregations…”. Our congregation is self-governing; we create our own dreams, make our own decisions, and turn those dreams and decisions into reality.
Board of Directors 2018-19
The church is governed by a Board made up of nine Directors. Church members are nominated for the Board by our Nominating Committee, and elected by the church members at our annual meeting held in June each year. Officers serve a 1-year term for a maximum of 4 terms. Directors serve a 2-year term for a maximum of 2 terms. The duties of the Board are described in Article VII of our 1st Church Bylaws 2018-06.
Board meetings are held at 7:00 pm on the 3rd Wednesday each month. Note: Due to the Thanksgiving holiday , the November 2018 meeting will be held on Sunday, November 18 from 12:30 – 2:00 pm.

Councils and Committees
Much of the work of the church – internal and external – is performed by teams of people who gather in councils, committees, and task groups. Church staff members have operational responsibilities and work collaboratively with committees to ensure the smooth operation of the church and its programs.
Listed below are links to the Council and Committee descriptions describing their purpose, functions, organizational structure, and reporting requirements. Most often, subcommittees and task groups do not have separate descriptions but perform a distinct part of the work of the larger committee under the direction of that committee.

Bylaws, Policies, Procedures & Forms
Our Bylaws have been adopted by the congregation and the Board of Directors to establish predictable and efficient ways to work together and make sure we operate in an ethical, legal, and safe manner.
Our policies are currently undergoing a full review by the Board and, as such, will not be posted online until the review has been completed. If you are in need of information about a particular policy, please contact the Congregational Administrator in the church office.
