Beloved Community

Membership Committee
The Membership Committee's weekly responsibility involves welcoming our visitors on Sunday morning with packets of information and a current newsletter, name tags, a visitor's book and a sign-in list for those interested in our UU 101 classes for prospective members.  We also meet visitors during the coffee hour and involve them in conversation with others.  The committee organizes and facilitates regular UU 101 classes.

Lifespan Faith Development

Children and Youth Religious Education Committee (CYREC)
CYREC at UUFG is an active and vibrant group of interested congregational members, whose primary job is to work closely with the Director of Religious Education in providing a wide variety of programs for our younger members. As a part of the Religious Education Program, we are very involved in planning events throughout the calendar year and recruiting involvement in youth activities from all members of the congregation. We also give input to curricula for the Sunday RE classes, as well as help recruit RE teachers and childcare personnel for congregational events.

Our membership has grown and flourished, reflecting our desire to ensure that quality programs for our children continue to expand and be modified with the changing nature of our fellowship. The CYREC Steering Committee meets on a monthly basis.  We provide updates in the congregational news channels, and we also report to other committees via Program Council meetings on a monthly basis. Select agendas for upcoming meetings or minutes from previous meetings from the attachments below.

Social Justice

Social Justice Council
The Social Justice Council (SJC) members support the mission of the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Gainesville (UUFG) by 'fostering…peace and justice' through assessment of social concerns and the promotion of effective actions to meet community needs. The purpose of the Social Justice Council is to promote peace and justice by providing information and facilitating action on political and social issues. Individually, members of the Social Justice Council have the opportunity to use their talents and skills working on social projects of their particular interest. Collectively, the members have the necessary strength to provide effective leadership for the congregation and the community.


Music Committee
The purpose of the Music Committee is to act as a support and advocacy group for the music program. It also interacts and coordinates activities with other committees such as the Worship Associates, Children and Youth Religious Education Committee, and Social Justice.

Standing Committees

Standing Committees report to the Governing Board, and do the foundational work of the Fellowship: facility, fiscal, and future.

Other Committees

Building and Grounds
This committee is responsible for maintaining the buildings and grounds of the Fellowship in good repair and appearance at all times. The committee is run by co-chairs because the responsibilities of this committee are so extensive. Members of the committee consist of those who volunteer for work mornings or otherwise.

Finance Committee
A standing committee of UUFG's Governance Program, the Finance Committee makes recommendations to the Governing Board and congregation concerning generation, custody, and management of Fellowship funds. The Finance Committee actively monitors both income and expenses with the goal of maintaining a sound financial condition.  Committee membership includes a chairperson, the Treasurer, the Membership Clerk, and other interested UUFG members.

Leadership Development Committee
The Leadership Development Committee provides the Fellowship with an ongoing resource for the development of an enlightened lay leadership. They insure continuous opportunities for growth and involvement to all  members, so that candidates for the annual election to the Governing Board, Program Council, and other elected offices, are readily available.

Stewardship Committee
Long-term goals of this committee include looking into questions such as: What does generosity mean to our congregation? And what kind of present and future do we envision?
