Celebrant Anchor Team (CAT): “Creating a welcoming, compassionate spiritual community!” In keeping with our shared ministry, the team plans and helps create Sunday and other special services of the congregation that build community and promote awareness of our Unitarian Universalist ideals as embodied in our Principles and Purposes. Our primary responsibilities are to plan services when the minister is not in the pulpit; support and advise the minister in matters relating to worship services; support Sunday morning speakers including the religious educators who tell our Story for all Ages; train and schedule Celebrants (lay worship leaders); work with the music director to coordinate music; provide logistical support and arrange set-up and use of the sanctuary during these services. CAT meets at 6:00 pm in Hanneman Hall on the last Monday before the first Sunday of every month unless scheduled otherwise (e.g. summer, holidays). For more information about CAT contact the 2012-2013 co-chairs Chris Vogel and Pam Vorachek.
Committee on Ministry: In accordance with our bylaws, the four members of this committee are co?selected by the board and the minister. The mission of this committee is to encourage collective ministry, promote healthy communications, resolve conflicts early and amicably, act as a sounding board, and be a support system for the minister.
