The Board of Trustees has charged each of the following committees of the Board with specific congregational work. Learn more about the purpose of current Board Committees below and click on button links to learn more about each one.
Building Beloved Community Committee
Purpose: To examine ways UUCC congregants and groups already work to educate themselves and to take actions aimed at dismantling racism and other oppressions, identify areas that appear ripe for further engagement, and recommend ways that congregants might engage individually and collectively to deepen their understandings and advance anti-racism/anti-oppression efforts for themselves, our institutions, and the broader community.
Covenant of Right Relations Committee
Purpose: Draft and implement an Interim Covenant of Right Relations and propose and implement a process for testing it and addressing any issues that arise.
Group Relations Workshop Committee
Purpose: Oversee the implementation of an expertly facilitated congregational workshop focused on relationship-building, reconciliation, and trust-building; strengthening intergroup relations within our congregation; and developing strategy for moving forward together as a community of faith.
Mission / Vision / Covenant Review Committee
Purpose: Oversee the process to review UUCC’s current Mission, Vision, and Covenant statements and, as deemed necessary, to develop new statements to be adopted by the congregation. The Board’s Governance Process policy II.A.2 states that, “At least once every seven years, the Board, together with the Senior Minister, and through extensive consultation with and involvement of the congregation, leads the effort to develop meaningful covenant, vision, and mission statements for UUCC.” An accepted and embraced congregational Mission, Vision, and Covenant is foundational to all other work taking place at UUCC. To fulfill all other recommendations, it is imperative that we all agree with the statements made in those foundational documents. This process must include wide congregational input and, in doing so, help to build and rebuild trust within our community.
Trust & Reconciliation Committee
Note: This Board Committee has completed its charge and is no longer gathering.
Purpose: To explore ways UUCC congregants can manage conflicts most constructively and to recommend ways forward to strengthen trust and deepen mutual understanding so that we can more fully promote our congregation’s mission, vision, ends, and covenant, consistent with UU principles and our nature as a religious community.
