The Children & Youth Religious Education Committee’s mission is to promote and nurture the spiritual growth and education of the Fellowship’s children and youth. Join us as we work closely with the Director of Religious Education and help with the selection of the yearly curriculum. One can expect our team to provide warm and loving care and exciting activities for all ages, not only during Sunday Service but for special events, as well. Are you interested in helping out?
We encourage and support the growth of UUFP membership by providing a warm welcome to visitors and knowledge to the community of UU principles and our Fellowship. The team further aid members through recreational activities and directory information.
We are committed to maintaining an attractive and thoughtful appearance and maintaining a “street appeal” for UUFP members and the general public, while promoting a Green Planet mentality by attracting and supporting native flora and fauna species.
We facilitate communication and awareness between the congregation, Tidewater Cluster, the Southern Region, and the UUA.
The Sunday Services Committee, as part of the Worship ministry, works closely with the minister to provide worship services all year long. Committee members provide feedback to the minister on past services. We are responsible for booking and working with speakers and lay leaders for services when the minister is away. The Committee constantly reviews service elements in light of congregants' comments and other concerns. We also work with the Music Committee on musical aspects of worship, with the DRE to include youth in some services, and with our ministerial interns. The Committee provides for special worship services and maintains supplies of items used in worship. Contact: email@example.com.
Many hands are needed to offer meaningful congregational worship, and our faith tradition calls us to be in covenant with one another. The Music Committee, as part of the Worship ministry, will thus cooperate with the Minister, with lay and guest preachers, and with the Sunday Services Committee to plan, prepare and perform music for Sunday services as well as for other services as may be required.

The Earth Rising committee, as part of our Worship ministry, coordinates the oldest continually meeting earth-centered group in Virginia. See our Earth Rising page or contact email@example.com for more information.
We provide a path for congregational study and reflection and a call to individual and collective actions in response to environmental challenges. Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
