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!

UUPLAN Activities

UUPLAN Website | Calendar

Each year, the Greater Philly Cluster of UU Churches offers two trainings for our member churches. This year the fall program will address the tools and best practices of Legislative Advocacy here in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. Members of our own church were instrumental in the founding of UUPLAN back in 2007. Our community is one of the 30 congregations in the state which provide financial support to UUPLAN.

UUPLAN works for good laws across Pennsylvania, and has had many successes even in the commonwealth’s gerrymandered legislature. UUPLAN is advocating for justice on seven key issues:

  1. Anti-Mass Incarceration,
  2. Economic Justice,
  3. Environmental Justice,
  4. Good Government,
  5. Gun Violence Prevention,
  6. Immigration Justice, and
  7. Reproductive Justice.
