Selected Breakthrough Congregations
We are pleased to announce the Breakthrough Congregations for 2017-18.
Each of these congregations will be profiled in the UU World in the coming year. We will link to the stories as they are published.
In the meantime, here is a brief glimpse at the exciting, innovative ways these congregations are adapting to the changing religious landscape.
- All Souls UU in Bellville, OH chose to overcome their fear and embrace the call of our faith to support the anti-racism work taking place in their community.
- UU Cong of Greater Lansing, MI is doing exciting cross-cultural work with the local Muslim community and has found vibrant ways to live our faith in partnership with them.
- UU Fellowship of Athens, GA is utilizing volunteer staff across generations, honoring their gifts and skills for congregational work.
- First Unitarian Church of Oakland, CA has a ground-breaking adaptation of religious education to meet the changing needs of their families.
Thank you to all congregations who applied. There was an abundance of inspirational stories to choose. We encourage you you apply again in the future!
