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!

Trustees of the Pennsylvania
Universalist Convention (TPUC)

PUC Annual Meeting, Saturday, October 5

We are one of the six remaining Universalist-heritaged churches in Pennsylvania and have been active members of the Pennsylvania Universalist Convention that was revived in the late 1970’s by a group of like minded folks including members of this church. The Annual meeting is always held in the fall and rotates around the state with each member congregation having a turn to host the event. We last hosted the event in 2016 and will have another turn in 2022. This year the Keynote speaker will be the UUA President, Rev. Susan Frederick-Gray. If you have witnessed or viewed any of her speeches at General Assembly, you will attest that she is a dynamic and thoughtful presenter. Her most recent article in the UUWorld is entitled “Love is an essential spiritual and moral value.” She writes: If our justice work does not emerge from the moral and spiritual value of love, in the end it will reinforce practices of domination and violence, just in new forms.

We are entitled to 5 voting delegates from our congregation and have our Trustee and Alternate Trustee, Fern C. and Cynthia B. We also can have one voting delegate from the church staff.

This year the host congregation is the First Universalist Church in Brooklyn Village. It is a sweet old church located north of Scranton and about a 3 hour drive from Philly. Watch for more information in our email newsletters and upcoming Orders of Service. The meeting starts Saturday morning, and ends with a celebratory supper that evening. Talk to or to learn more.
