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!

Dear Congregational Leader,

We on CER staff, just like you and your staff, have been working like crazy since the pandemic started, trying to figure out a whole new way of doing church. We will be taking a much needed break at the end of July and in August, to renew and refresh and serve you better in the fall. Hope you can do the same! We will not be holding any drop in calls from July 27th (a week that the UUA is closed) through August 21. The calls will resume the week of August 25th as we head into the new church year, ready for whatever the rest of 2020 has to offer.

We encourage you and your staff to be sure to catch similar breaks this summer! Find a way to get some much needed down time, and to make sure your staff does the same.

Don’t worry, in case of emergency, we’re here.

Enjoy the break and see you at the end of August,
Your CER Team
