chaliceflamePlease mark your calendar for UUAA's 2017 Annual Meeting, Sunday, June 4th at 11:30 am in the Phifer Sanctuary. All members are asked to come take part in our democratic congregational governance. Non-members are warmly welcome to take part, but cannot vote. There are important UUAA business items to vote on this year: election of officers and Leadership Development Team members, election of 4 Senior Minister Search Committee members and a Bylaws change. There will also be information presented about the new sanctuary movement. You can follow this link to read the meeting materials so that you can prepare ahead for discussion and voting.

The UUAA 2016-17 Annual Report is included on the Annual Meeting web page.

The Room Team is working to upgrade how we reserve space in the UUAA building. We hope that streamlining our process will result in consistent and easier to use reservations for each registered congregational group.

This year, the UUSC will focus on domestic advocacy, placing a priority on efforts to combat xenophobia and hate that has run rampant in US society.  There are major initiatives aiming to undermine the Administration's discriminatory actions, especially those targeting marginalized communities. UUSC members have joined with the UUA to sign the Declaration of Conscience. 

Are you interested in a trip to India next February to visit the school with which our congregation has shared a partnership for over 15 years?

Are you interested in exploring this important topic? "Corruption of Our Democracy" was selected at the 2016 Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) General Assembly (GA) to be the 2016-2020 Congregational Study/Action Issue (CSAI).

Yes, it's time to get back in the soil for season six at Farmer Bill Schmid's, growing and harvesting veggies for Food Gatherer's.

General Assembly GA 2017

"Resist and Rejoice"

Unitarian Universalists from around the country will gather in New Orleans, Louisiana for a General Assembly experience focused on solidarity with the movements for racial, economic, and climate justice. We will invite the culture, history, geography, and people of New Orleans to be our teachers.

UUAA is now in our 18th year joining together with 16 other local congregations to help finance and provide volunteers for Habitat for Humanity homes in our community. This summer we are renovating 2 Ypsilanti homes on Harvest Lane. Lots of information and work day sign-ups are available in the Social Hall after both services or visit the Habitat Outreach web page to sign up on-line.

During April, the Arts and Aesthetics Committee is sponsoring an art show and sale of art from the Zimbabwe Artists ZapPaintingProject. ZAP is a non-profit that works primarily with women artists from rural Zimbabwe. ZAP buys art directly from the artists and sells it to people in the U.S. looking for beautiful and meaningful art and who want to support their artistic talents.  The artists are also subsistence farmers, mothers and householders.  All proceeds from the sale of ZAP art at UUAA go directly to ZAP to support health care, education, farming and food assistance in the artists' community.
