What is Theme-Based Ministry?

Theme-based ministry is a new way of doing church and faith development that brings Unitarian Universalists together across differences of life experience, age, or beliefs. It’s a way of helping us focus and deepen, both in our spiritual lives, and in our connections to one another.

Each month, we look at a new monthly theme – past themes have included Hospitality, for example, or Compassion. Throughout the month, the entire community explores dimensions of this theme though aspects of our common life at the church, such as music, meditation, and reflections from the pulpit. There is also a drop-in monthly theme discussion group that meets from September through June; please see our Covenant Groups page for more information.

Our ministry themes for 2020 are:

  • January: Thresholds
  • February: Courage
  • March: Freedom & Responsibility
  • April: Renewal
  • May: Integrity
  • June: Mistakes
  • July-August: Spiritual Practice
  • September: Imagination
  • October: Grief
  • November: Possibilities
  • December: Silence
