We seek to tie All Souls to that larger UU world by informing the congregation about UU news and events, recruiting delegates to the UUA’s annual General Assembly, and implementing specific recommendations and programs that come from the denomination. See the Denominational Affairs page for more details and links to UU organizations.
Appointed by the Board of Trustees, we coordinate the church’s conflict resolution process. One of our responsibilities is to identify and recruit mediators and provide training in conflict resolution. More information at www.all-souls.org/right-relations.
Following intensive fundraising in 2011–12, we now track pledges, bring new members into the campaign, re-contact members whose economic situations may have improved, and look beyond our congregation to raise money. As the renovation project progresses, we will form new teams to support the project, including construction oversight, communication, and fundraising teams.
We plan, coordinate, and execute all revenue activities for the church’s present and future operating needs. (We coordinate with but are separate from the Third Century Challenge capital campaign.) Our overriding mission is to provide the financial backbone for the church's ministries and to deepen congregants’ awareness of generosity as a spiritual practice. Annual activities include auctions, book sales, galas, and the Annual Giving Campaign.
The CoM, a standing committee of the Board of Trustees, supports, strengthens, and enriches the shared ministry of the church, both lay and professional. Meetings are closed and confidential, to allow for frank discussion of ministerial issues, including evaluation of shared ministry and the senior minister. The Board appoints members for three-year terms.
