Our mission statement reads: “In the Universalist spirit of love and hope, we give, receive and grow.” One of the ways that we are called to grow is in our generosity. Generosity is a foundational spiritual practice—for us as individuals and as an institution—that helps us align our actions with our values.
How do you live into your faith through generosity? We hope you will join us in giving of your time, talent, and treasure to strengthen, sustain, and grow our vibrant faith community.
The regular, ongoing financial support from members of our church community makes up more than 80% of our annual operating budget – paying minister and staff salaries, keeping the lights on and the church building operating, allowing us to offer inspirational worship services and high quality programming for children, youth, and adults, and supporting our justice work through which we make a difference in our community and live out our values in the world.
Every year in March, we ask you, the members of our community, to renew your financial commitment to the church and inform us of your giving intentions for the coming fiscal year (July-June). We use this information to put together our annual budget, which the board and staff work on in April and May and the congregation approves at our Annual Meeting in early June.
Your financial support of this church community is crucial!
