Creating Covenantal Community

2022-05-22 10:30:00

In-person & Online. A covenant is an agreement – a sacred promise – to be in relationship.  Covenant is the center of our Unitarian Universalist way of faith.  As we contemplate the Covenant of Engagement that the DUUC congregation has participated in creating, we’ll explore what covenant means.

At 3:00pm on May 22 on Zoom Only, there will be an opportunity to ask questions of the Transition Team about the Covenant of Engagement.  The Covenant of Engagement will be on the agenda for the annual meeting on June 5, for a vote on whether to accept this congregational covenant. The Zoom link is:


Virtual Social Time, 11:30-noon by Zoom. Bring your coffee and join us following the service for Social Time hosted by Rev. Connie Grant. You’ll be assigned to an automatically-generated “breakout room” for a half-hour of conversation with a small group of people. A discussion question related to the service will be provided. Look for Zoom details in the Order of Service email and on the Member Portal page.

The vote to adopt new Bylaws, 9:30am (Founders Room or Zoom). At the annual meeting on June 5, the congregation will be asked to adopt our new Bylaws! Prior to the vote, the Governance Advisory Committee in collaboration with the Board of Trustees will hold a multi-platform forum to explain the changes. Learn how the new language keeps the essence of who we are but removes the detail that caused our Constitution to become outdated frequently. We’ll review where that detail has been moved (not removed) for better access and maintenance, too. The Bylaws content has been guided by UUA support and reviewed by a local law firm that specializes in non-profit issues. We are confident that we’ve got it covered! Look for Zoom details in upcoming Weeklies and on the website’s Organization and Governance page.
