Our purpose is to assure that any permanent or semi-permanent addition or change that affects the visual aspect of the church building or grounds is attractive and appropriate for the campus.
We raise awareness of the global and growing refugee crisis and of the needs of newly resettled refugee families in our Sacramento area. With open hearts, UUSS volunteers welcome and support refugee families, providing friendship and assistance toward empowerment and self-sufficiency. The team provides and promotes volunteer opportunities to UUSS members, families and friends. We solicit donations of money, goods and services of direct aid for refugee families and to fund our events and work at UUSS. The team coordinates our volunteer efforts with programs of the local office of the International Rescue Committee.
We regularly review financial statements; track investment balances, make financial policy recommendations, and submit an annual budget proposal to the Board of Trustees. The Congregation votes to approve or reject the budget proposed by the Board. Monthly meetings, on the 2nd Wednesday of each month at 6 p.m., are open to members and friends.
Our committee works closely with the ministers in planning and presenting Sunday services, and helps arrange for guest ministers and speakers. The lay leaders from this committee (known as Worship Associates) take on specific roles and duties as participants in each service.
We are an ad-hoc committee appointed by the Board in 2015 to oversee and promote coordination of the fundraising activities and programs that support and sustain the UUSS mission. Activities include scheduling and recruiting leadership for fundraising dinners, service auctions, special appeals, building donations, the annual stewardship campaign, and encouraging members and friends to remember UUSS in wills, estate plans and investment beneficiary designations. We develop a yearly and 5-year calendar and recruit and support volunteers for various activities and make recommendations to the Board of Trustees. Members with experience or inspiration in any of these areas are invited to contact us with your ideas and interest in participating.
