Get Involved!

Become involved with a project that has caught your passion: whether it's Green Sanctuary, Gift-Based Ministry, as a worship associate, leading a covenant group, or something entirely different, your congregation needs your involvement in order to benefit from your unique talents and gifts!

Become a religious educator. Whether you are working with children, youth, young adults, or adults, this work can be deeply fulfilling and fun!

Offer to become a lay leader in your congregation. Talk to your nominating committee. If your congregation's in search for new professional leadership, think about whether you might contribute in new and exciting ways to that venture.

Witness your faith in the company of others, on behalf of your congregation. Seek out connections with other religious groups who share similar values. Help carry the message -- beyond your congregation -- that makes clear Unitarian Universalism's values and voice in this challenging world.

Become a delegate to your UUA District's meetings. You'll learn new skills, develop a sense of Unitarian Universalism that extends beyond your own congregation, and help nurture the vitality of our faith in your district.

Don't wait to be asked: contact your congregation's Nominating Committee and tell them you're willing to serve. They'll be glad to hear from you!

Religious Exploration at Restoration


Children from the RE program honor the annual Martin Luther King Jr.
Day of Service (in part) by marching around the sanctuary and
learning about the weekly vigils hosted by our congregation.

Some things remain the same: Isabel R. and Jyl S. continue to provide exceptional care in our nursery (Jyl even assists in our classroom when she can!). Our students are still sung out every Sunday after the Story for All Ages. And we continue to explore themes in tandem with adult worship.

You might have noticed, though, one difference in particular: our program has grown ever so slightly. This is true in both our nursery as well as our classroom. It’s exciting and the energy in the room is catching! Together, we’ve explored how we are a people of vision through guided meditation; reimagined our classroom as a sanctuary by making craft stained glass; delved into our own memories to write poems; immersed ourselves in UU history and investigated the mystery within scientific discovery by learning the story of Lewis Latimer and making circuit boards; considered the possibilities of our own futures in the light of multicultural stories of miraculous births; and most recently, practiced our trust in each other with a blindfolded partner walk in our outdoor play area.

We’ve also been lucky enough to have some tremendous volunteers helping both during and outside of class time. Big thanks to Chrissy E., Karen S., Darlene S., Linda P., Fern C., Len R., Emlen S., Leslie F., and Kaiyon F. If you are interested in volunteer opportunities, talk to Joanna on Sunday, or email

Finally, everyone, please mark your calendars for our next upcoming multigenerational activity: an all-ages Restoration Nature Walk, “Looking For Spring,” will happen on Saturday, March 23, at the John Heinz National Wildlife Refuge. We will gather at the Visitor’s Center at 9 am, and finish by noon. Please let Fern C. or Darlene S. know of your plans to attend. Come and help us celebrate the approach of Spring!

Stay tuned for details for other exciting multigenerational activities, including a movement workshop led by Catherine M. in April and “I Care Day,” where members will unite to beautify our building (Saturday, May 18th).
