Statement – What we want to achieve
The Unitarian Universalist Church in
Cherry Hill is engaged in a variety of progressive programs as part of its
commitment to social responsibility and is bringing about positive social
change in the region, church community and in the membership.
Unitarian Universalist are called to
be actively engaged in the world and to work for social justice. Our work is
grounded in our seven principles that draw on many spiritual traditions and
require us to put our faith into action. We covenant to “dwell together in
peace, to seek the truth in love and to help one another.” Our congregation’s
vision statement asks us to “learn, love and serve.”
Social Responsibility Steering
Committee comprises individuals charged by the
Board of Trustees with providing opportunities for members and
friends of the congregation to participate in social responsibility:
projects, which change individual hearts and minds,
projects, which change public policy,
projects, which change individual lives, and
projects, which financially support social change.
It does this through supporting
education, witness/testimony, legislation and community organization, as part
of UUCCH’s covenant to social responsibility. The Steering Committee manages,
coordinates and provides resources to Issue
Groups, which undertake various social responsibility
awareness, advocacy, service and donation projects.
