Our Mission

Open hearts, open minds, open doors, nurturing spirits, seeking justice in the wider world.

Our Vision

Chalice is a vibrant center of liberal religious values, a beacon to the communities we serve, with innovative ministries and flourishing activities.           

Congregational Goals for 2022-2023

  • To more fully live our UU values in our journey toward wholeness, we commit to explore ways within our congregation to become a greater source of nourishment for Black, Indigenous, and people of color (BIPOC). At a minimum we want our white congregants not to marginalize our BIPOC congregants. More purposeful work may focus on encouraging internal congregation dialogue and self reflection on issues such as structural racism, white supremacy practices and anti-oppression work.
  • ​As we transition back to face-to-face gatherings, our goal is to continue to provide online accessibility of our worship, meetings, events and activities while also embracing the power and comfort of being physically present in community.

Congregational Goals for 2021-2022

  • To more fully live our UU values in our journey toward wholeness, we commit to explore ways within our congregation to become a greater source of nourishment for Black, Indigenous, and people of color (BIPOC). At a minimum, we want our white congregants not to marginalize our BIPOC congregants. More purposeful work may focus on changing internal congregation dialogue to include structural racism, white nationalism and dismantling white supremacy.
  • ​As we transition back to face-to-face gatherings, our goal is to continue to increase the online accessibility of our worship, meetings, events, and activities, so that “online membership” is a meaningful possibility.

Congregational Goals for 2020-2021

  • Strengthen the ways in which congregants offer care and support to each other.
  • Increase financial support for Chalice’s operating budget, including pledging, congregation-wide fun(d)raising activities, and funding from outside the congregation.

​Congregational Goals for 2019-2020

  • Create well-designed, attractive and welcoming classroom and meeting spaces and outdoor play spaces
  • Investigate additional fundraising sources and activities

  • Become increasingly active with local social justice, community service and human rights organizations.
