Committee on Ministry (CoM) typically has six lay members. The professional ministers are ex officio (non-voting) members. Lay members are elected for three-year terms with the election of two new members to the committee each year. The committee works with the ministerial staff and lay leaders to evaluate and promote the overall effectiveness of the ministry of the congregation. The Committee on Ministry’s mission is to help build and maintain a healthy congregation, composed of members and staff who are committed to a search for deeper meaning and purpose, to other members, to our church, and to Unitarian Universalism as a way of creating a better world.

Congregational Survey

One of the major undertakings of the Committee on Ministry is to conduct a survey of the congregation every five years. This survey evaluates the priorities and satisfaction of our members relating to major aspects of church life. Learn more and see the 2017 survey results here.
