Immigration Ministry

We support the Boulder immigrant community through direct interaction, coalition-building, advocacy, non-violent direct actions like vigils, and community education. The Immigration Ministry Team meets to plan the work and reflect on what has been done.

Currently, we are discerning whether to be a Sanctuary Host Site. Supporting documents are included here.

Black Lives Matter

Racial Justice

Our Racial Justice Ministry Team meets regularly. We are in partnership with Standing Up for Racial Justice (SURJ) Boulder, and conducting educational events that help us live our belief that Black Lives Matter.

 

Share-Our-Plate

Each year the congregation nominates and votes on eight local non-profits to receive half of our Sunday offerings for a month. These organizations also offer opportunities for church members to volunteer in the larger Boulder community.

 

Community Garden Group

We promote locavore food and garden education and skills with an on-site vegetable garden, and we donate produce to our county Community Food Share. The church also co-sponsors the local interfaith CSA (Community-Supported Agriculture) Tuv Ha’Aretz.

 

Community Table

We provide staffing to serve meals once a month to people experiencing homelessness and the working poor through the Community Table program of Bridge House.

Welcoming Congregation / LGBTQ+ Ministry

The Unitarian Universalist Church of Boulder welcomes people of all sexual orientations and gender identities, and we work with local nonprofits supporting lesbian, gay, bisexual, pansexual, transgender, queer, intersex, and asexual concerns. Since 1999 we have been certified by the Unitarian Universalist Association as an LGBTQ+ Welcoming Congregation.

Our Welcoming Congregation Ministry Team continues to lead us in expanding our understanding of sexuality and gender, promoting radical welcome and loving acceptance, and advocating for equal rights and respect for LGBTQ+ individuals and families.

 

UUSC – Unitarian Universalist Service Committee

Many individual church members belong to the UUSC, which advances human rights through grassroots collaboration in more than a dozen countries. We participate in UUSC programs selectively as a congregation.

Social Justice Public Forums

We organize and host presentations by a variety of speakers, authors, thinkers, and performers who challenge us to understand the issues of our times, and the possibilities of our social witness.
