The 545 Vision Task Force has been working to synthesize the input we’ve received from the congregation to date. Informed by feedback from congregational meetings and surveys conducted by the board over the past year and from our congregational vision brainstorming session last fall, we’ve created a working draft of a new church mission statement. A mission statement is a formal summary of the aims and values of the church, in a concise format. Please sit with this and think about it for a while. There will be opportunities in the future to provide more input.
The mission of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Ventura is to:
• Invite connections and diversity
• Spark and nurture free journeys of spiritual growth
• Reach out to create a more just and loving community, in harmony with nature
