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!

Murray Grove Retreat and Renewal Center


Murray Grove Retreat and Renewal Center’s Annual
Homecoming Weekend, Sept. 27 through 29

Murray Grove is completing their 250th Anniversary year commemorating the year that John Murray delivered his first Universalist sermon in Thomas Potter’s little church on Sept. 29, 1769. This year’s theme is entitled Universal Good: Social and Environmental Justice. Featured speakers include Rev. Eric Dobson, Sam Daley-Harris and Rev. Kim Wildszewski. You can choose to attend for just part of the weekend, such as Saturday for the programming, but there are both dorm style facilities and camp sites for overnight guests. Be watching in our weekly newsletters and around the church for more information. Rev. McKinley, Harald and Annabelle G., Fern C., and Julie & Bran B. all attended last year.

250th Anniversary for Murray Grove

Murray Grove Retreat and Renewal Center is planning the 250th Anniversary celebration of the first Universalist sermon in Colonial America. John Murray conducted a religious service back on Sept. 29, 1770 in the small chapel that Thomas Potter had built on his land. As the Trustees of the Pennsylvania Universalist Convention (TPUC) representative to the planning committee, Fern C. was asked to give a brief report at the October 2017 Annual Meeting.

You may read her report here. We have our own 200th Anniversary in the same year, 2020, and it seems that we may find opportunities to connect the two celebrations in some meaningful ways.
