Each year in early spring, UUC holds its annual Stewardship pledge drive whereby members and friends are asked to make a monetary pledge to support the mission and vision of the congregation. UUC receives no outside funding and relies solely on the generosity of congregants for support. 

Stewardship 2024 -2025
Our Theme: Love at the Center

Go to the Stewardship Page in our Members Area for More Information and Updates on this Year’s Pledge Drive.


In 2024 – 2025, our focus is on:

  • support increasing the administrator’s position from 25 to 30 hours to be more in sync with the duties expected of that position and additional responsibilities supporting IT and the LFD program.
  • support all staff salaries to meet the fair wage recommendations of the UUA.

The budget will also continue to fund and grow our many different ministries and programs, as well as allow us to welcome those living elsewhere or unable to travel by offering both in-person services, meetings, and gatherings as well as via Zoom.  


Our Stewardship Pledge Drive will run through the month of March. 

This year we will have a Pledging Party on March 17th during the 10:00 am service

There will be several different ways to submit your pledge, including via paper or online. Attending via Zoom will still be an option. Those who attend in person will be treated to a lovely brunch while participating in some fun activities the stewardship Committee has planned for the event. So, come one, come all to the Pledging Party service/brunch on Sunday, March 17!

How Much Should I Give?

How much one donates is a very personal decision. The Unitarian Universalist Association recommends a donation of from 2-5% of one’s adjusted annual income. If your circumstances make this unrealistic, consider making it a goal to work toward. In the end it is not so much about “raising money” as it is creating a community of generosity where lives are literally transformed, where children learn our values, where we each find support in all areas of our lives, and where our values spread out into the larger world of social service and social justice. Give as generously as you can, experience the sense of joy and well-being that comes from creating and participating in the abundance of UUC.


Pledge payments can be made directly from your checking or savings accounts through your bank, by personal check, via our secure Vanco online account (this last option incurs fees). Please have checks written to “UUC” with PLEDGE in the memo line and mailed to our PO Box at:
