Community Partner Nominations & Champions Wanted!

Faith in Action is a bridge connecting First Unitarian with the service organizations of our community. Each year our congregation selects 2 community organizations as partners. Each selected organization has a champion from the congregation who serves as a conduit for engagement activities with the selected groups.
The organizations receive ½ of the Sunday collections and also offer opportunities for our members to engage in activities and programs which allow for focused involvement.
At our next congregation annual meeting we will again select 2 organizations for the coming year beginning September 2021 and ending August 2022.
The Faith in Action Committee is seeking nominee organizations for the coming year. If you know of an organization you believe will be a good fit with our UU Community and are willing to serve as a Champion now is the time to begin the nomination process.
We will have an application available on the First Unitarian web site. The Champion will help the organization complete the application. The applications will be reviewed by the Faith in Action Committee and the nominees will have opportunities to communicate their programs to our UU Community during the month of May.
Timeline:
  • March 8 through April 19 – Applications submitted.
  • April 19 through May 3 – Applications reviewed by Faith in Action.
  • May 3 through June 4 – Organizations communication activities.
  • June 6 – Annual Congregation Meeting – Organizations selected by ballot
