This Sunday, our middle schoolers learned about congregational polity and UUCC’s church governance. We had some visitors attend who could talk about their experiences on the board of trustees and/or what it was like to attend General Assembly, where our denominational business is done.
The youth tried to guess how many UU congregations there are. Did your child come close? They also discussed the question “Our UU congregation is free to do whatever it wants to do.” What did your child think? Did they change their minds over the course of the class?
