History and Heritage

Universalist Church of Eau Claire WI 1858History and Heritage webinar

We begin this webinar by considering the benefits of doing UU history. Then we review strategies for doing historical work in your home congregations, and for connecting your local history to regional and national UU history. We present examples of how to communicate your historical information, and how to collaborate with others who engage in UU historical initiatives.




Presented by Nancy Heege, Tim Hirsch and the Members of the Region's History and Heritage Committee.

Pastoral Care System

Creating A Pastoral Care ProgramHow does a small congregation create a system for meeting the needs of its members at times such as illness, family emergency or death?  This webinar will discuss how to move beyond "I'll cook dinner for someone who is my friend" to "As a representative of our congregation, I'll cook dinner for a member who's in need of our congregation's care."  Practical ideas will be shared.  Facilitator: Nancy Heege, Congregational Life Consultant.

Leader: Rev. Lisa Presley, Congregational Life Consultant, MidAmerica Region. For many years now, the UUA and our congregations have been striving to learn how to be multiculturally competent.
