WHO WE ARE: OUR MEMBERS February 2015
We recognize and honor the Network members. Below is a listing by
1) Congregational members (and may include individuals who are members).
2) Individual members in a congregation that is not a Congregational member.
If you don't see your congregation on the list, talk to your minister or the current coordinator(s) of your Small Group Ministry or Covenant Group program. Encourage them to join and support the UU SGM Network with a Congregational Membership! Membership may have lapsed but renewal is easy.
To report a change in contact person or inquire about the status of your Membership, write to firstname.lastname@example.org.
