Member Support & Caring
These Congregational Stories About Sharing Ministry share the ways in which members of Unitarian Universalist churches have ministered to one another and discovered new ways of serving and being served.
Lay Pastoral Care Team Ministry is a program of the River Road Unitarian Church, Bethesda, MD.
Stages of Life
Our congregations intentionally affirm the infinite variety of families, and commit to provision and sustain them as they grow in spirit, love, and justice.
The Office of Youth and Young Adult Ministries supports all Unitarian Universalist (UU) youth and young adults with online connections, congregational programming, campus ministry resources, leadership trainings, and more.
Marriages, child dedications, and memorial services are among the ceremonies held in Unitarian Universalist congregations to mark life transitions. Many congregations also hold ceremonies to welcome new members.
In addition to conferences and online communities for singles, many UU congregations host events or small group ministries for individuals who are not in a committed relationship.
The office of Multicultural Ministries supports and creates programs, initiatives, leadership development opportunities, and educational resources to help Unitarian Universalism become an inclusive and multicultural faith and a force for love and justice in our larger world. For more information, go to Racial Justice and Multicultural Ministries and Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer (LGBTQ) Welcome and Equality.
The Office of Accessibility Concerns works to cultivate and institutionalize a “theology of wholeness and justice.” Our pages on Disability & Accessibility are a resource for us all on our Journey Toward Wholeness.
Small Group Ministries
Small Group Ministry (SGM) provides a format with which we nurture connections and explore spirituality within our congregations.
Addictions present many challenges; our faith provides strength and comfort with which to meet those challenges. Our Addictions Ministry Resources offer tools and information to support reflection and transparency, and to help those with addictions, their families, and their communities along the path to recovery.
