The MidAmerica Region of the Unitarian Universalist Association includes nearly 200 UU congregations in parts or all of these states: Illinois, Wisconsin, Indiana, Michigan, Missouri, Kentucky, Ohio, North Dakota, South Dakota, Minnesota, Iowa, Kansas, and Nebraska.

For several years, Central MidWest, Heartland and Prairie Star Districts have been in a process of change. In their District Assemblies in April 2013, the three Districts brought before the member congregations the question of whether to change the governance structure to create a single regional governing body. Each district voted to become the MidAmerica Region. As of July 1, 2013, our administrative and program delivery structure are officially combined into the new MidAmerica Region. The staff of all three Districts are now the MidAmerica staff.

We are seeking to covenant with each other to find new ways of partnering and standing together on the side of love for the flourishing of our world, our communities, our congregations and our members.

ALERT: Is it a scam?

Not in this case. UU Service Committee is making calls, and there has been some confusion with our Chalice Lighters Program. You should know that MidAmerica Chalice Lighters does NOT make phone solicitations. Safety Tip: Be sure to identify the caller and where they’re from. It helps to write it down to help you remember. If you have any questions, please contact us at [email protected].
