On Sunday, May 19th, the NEW UUAA Pastoral Care Network was introduced to the Congregation.This network approach combines the skills and strengths of the ministerial team and the congregation to provide assistance in times of need and joy.
A key element of the network is congregant to congregant care (congregants offering help to each other).

We have a new Pastoral Care Team working with Quiana Perkins, our Pastoral Care Coordinator, to manage the network. THE NETWORK NEEDS YOU!

We are asking that each member commit, as spiritual practice, to performing 1-2 acts of care a year. Please let us know how you can support the Care Network by completing the UUAA Pastoral Care Commitment Form.

The Pastoral Team looks forward to serving our beloved community!

Please make sure your child(ren) are appropriate dressed and sunscreened to go outside.  Nursery and preschool aged children's classes are 10:00am - 11:15am.

Maybe we are finally past the season of building closures for inclement weather! The UUAA operations policy for how building closure decisions are made has been updated. To read that policy or any other UUAA operations policies, follow this link.

chaliceflameThis winter congregants and staff at UUAA have been in conversation about what matters to us in our Sunday services. Three documents are available that show some of this ongoing conversation.

- On Sunday, January 19, 2019, a "snapshot survey" gathered comments and suggestions about Sunday services from 362 participants (we currently have 632 adult members). Participants were very positive in their remarks, especially about music and staff. You can follow this link to see the summarized results, including a link to the full (anonymized) collected results.

The UUAA Board of Trustees has been organizing and planning a congregation-wide discernment of our purpose and vision.  As we look forward a full generation, what will our beloved community be like?  How will we experience UUAA? What would we see, hear, smell, touch, taste 20 years from now? What is the difference that we want to make in this world? Everyone's input will be needed. Follow this link to see results of exercises and updates on the visioning project...
