Many hands are needed to offer meaningful congregational worship, and our faith tradition calls us to be in covenant with one another. The Music Committee will thus cooperate with the Minister, with lay and guest preachers, and with the Sunday Services Committee to plan, prepare and perform music for Sunday services as well as for other services as may be required. Interested in more information or being part of our team? Email: email@example.com.
We serve to facilitate the important social actions that take place within the congregation, as well as to raise awareness of issues in the interest of securing human rights, an equitable distribution of resources, a healthy planet, democracy, and a space for the human spirit to thrive. We are committed to active involvement with social issues following the UUA’s Seven Principles. Interested in more information or being part of our team? Email:
Sunday Morning Forum
Each Sunday morning, 11:15 – 12:15 in the UUFP Office Building, thought-provoking presentations and discussions are facilitated by congregants and guest speakers. Drawing from a wide range of sources and topics, these motivating educational opportunities are certain to expand both mind and spirit!

The Sunday Services Committee works closely with the minister to provide worship services all year long. Committee members provide feedback to the minister on past services. We are responsible for booking and working with speakers and lay leaders for services when the minister is away. The Committee constantly reviews service elements in light of congregants' comments and other concerns. We also work with the Music Committee on musical aspects of worship, with the DRE to include youth in some services, and with our ministerial interns. The Committee provides for special worship services and maintains supplies of items used in worship. Interested in more information or being part of our team? Email: email@example.com.
