Guided by our Senior Minister and Social Justice Coordinator, our Ministry Teams work in a structured, supported environment to ensure that volunteers’ time, energy, and passion have a tangible impact. The focus of these teams is driven by our Unitarian Universalist Principles that urge us all to promote human dignity, equity, peace, democracy, and respect for the natural world.
