A vision statement reflects the hopes of the congregation: who we want to be and where we hope to go in the next 5-10 years.
A mission statement reflects how we plan to get there and states our core values, what matters to us as a community.
Over the 2022-23 church year, the congregation of First Unitarian Society, led by a Vision & Mission Task Force, developed the following statements, which were officially adopted by the congregation at the Spring Parish Meeting on May 21, 2023.
The vision of First Unitarian Society is to be a spiritual community of belonging. We will transform ourselves and society through the practices of radical welcome, deep listening, and compassionate, authentic connection. We envision a world fueled by love and justice.
At First Unitarian Society, we question boldly, listen humbly, grow spiritually, act courageously, and love unapologetically.
The congregation thanks the members of 2022-23 Vision & Mission Task Force for their leadership and hard work:
Emily Cusic Putnam, Emily Smith, Larry Johnson, Lisa Munro, Joy Stieglitz Gottschalk, Rev. Kelly Crocker, and Rev. Kelly Asprooth-Jackson
