Welcoming All: Community Conversations

Our year-long congregation-wide engagement with the first element of our mission—Welcoming All—will continue with the second of three community conversations on January 25 & 26. 
As we are learning and exploring, Welcoming All requires more than simply opening our doors and being friendly. In Part 2 we will take things to the next level and engage with what it takes to embody radical welcome and move the margins to the center. These sessions will be facilitated by Alex Kapitan, a queer and trans lifelong UU, lay community minister, organizer,
educator, activist, and co-leader of the
Transforming Hearts Collective.

Auction 2020 – Soaring to New Heights in Our Member Auction 

The auction process has begun and our new auction website is proving to be a great success! Check it out at

Many members are registered on the new site and entering their donations. We are still learning about all the possibilities in the new auction site, so please watch your email and
Order of Service for updates.


January is the time for members to think about the events, adventures, meals, member-made arts, crafts & food or services they will donate to the auction. We encourage you to consider donations you’ve made in the past or events you attended that you enjoyed.  Try something new, think outside the box or offer something that’s tried & true. Offerings in all price ranges are appreciated.


In early February you’ll be able to see the entire on-line catalog & begin deciding which things catch your eye so you’re ready to start bidding on February 9. Please mark your calendar now for the Auction Opening Celebration on Sunday February 9

Hello Members -

The Campus Committee Team is charged with promoting and managing use of our buildings, including the Unity Temple Community Center and Gale House. We wish to develop policies for building use and rental in a responsible and equitable way
with an eye towards our wider community, while also supporting the UTUUC operating budget.

We are a very busy congregation, and while we are currently making good use of Unity Temple Community Center, there is still capacity for further use. We also have new opportunities at the Gale House since Alcuin's departure last year. 

In this survey, we ask for your thoughts about use by members, as well as non-members and outside organizations. There are trade-offs to consider in how we use our building resources to benefit our membership, and to deepen our impact in the wider community by providing space to meet or organize.

The survey should take less than 15 minutes and we have provided several places throughout the survey for you to provide more details on your responses.

Please complete the survey by January 31. Click HERE to take the survey.

We truly appreciate your time to provide your thoughts on this important effort!

The Campus Committee Team
