crystalball300A Congregational Meeting/ Vision Design will be held INSTEAD of second service on Sunday, January 26th.

  • A short business meeting will include a vote on whether to sponsor the ordination of  theresa rohlck.
  • Everyone will engage in the next steps of our Vision 20/50 project in small group and large group activities. (Click this link to learn more about Vision 20/50).

ALL AGES are invited to attend. There will be visioning activities designed for children and youth. The nursery will be available for infants and toddlers.  There will be no children and youth Spiritual Growth and Development classes on Jan 26th.

Our consultant, Elandria Williams and two UUA regional leaders, Rev. Lisa Presley and Rev. Carlton Smith will be with us. Elandria says, "We are trying to create a space where people feel excited, at home, pushed, held, theologically and spiritually deepened, provoked to think deeply, with minds and hearts blown wide open and ready to go."

We will review and course-correct the vision discerned from our Vision Session data. And we will begin action planning for the future we have imagined. You won't want to miss this!

chaliceflameThis winter congregants and staff at UUAA have been in conversation about what matters to us in our Sunday services. Three documents are available that show some of this ongoing conversation.

- On Sunday, January 19, 2019, a "snapshot survey" gathered comments and suggestions about Sunday services from 362 participants (we currently have 632 adult members). Participants were very positive in their remarks, especially about music and staff. You can follow this link to see the summarized results, including a link to the full (anonymized) collected results.
