Participate regularly in Sunday Services. Small miracles happen every Sunday. Your presence is a meaningful addition to this community’s energy and power. A word, the silence, music or a song may be a healing, encouraging or transformative moment for you. Or maybe you will be the one to reach out warmly to welcome someone new, offer an affirming look or say a transforming word to someone. A small miracle may happen through you.
- Commit to a daily spiritual practice. We will support you in developing a practice that is right for you – praying; meditating; chanting; reading scripture, poetry or other inspirational words; walking; journal-keeping…
- Participate in activities. Join one of the church’s groups, classes or workshops. We offer many ways to feed your spirit.
- Serve the church. We are grateful for and encourage your gifts, and will support you as you search for your ministry in the church as Greeter, Usher, Evensong Leader, Caring Circle Member, Board Trustee – whatever capacity calls to you.
- Serve the larger community. We want the church to give in good measure to alleviate some of the suffering in the world. We will support your sense of mission and help you respond to the needs of the world with your compassion and action. Community service opportunities in which the church participates include the Read-Aloud and School Volunteer Projects, Greater Richmond Interfaith Program’s Souper Center and Shelter, Transylvanian Partner Church Program, Friends Outside-Jail Ministries, Green Conservation, the UU Service Committee, and World Peace Committee.
Give generously to support the church’s principles and purpose. Members share in good measure to live in good conscience and sleep well at night. May we know meaning and joy in sharing.
We all dream of clarifying our mission, our higher calling, and of working together to make more love and justice in our lives and in the world. Through our clarifying, living out, and realizing our mission, may we each and all grow in faith and hope and charity.
