Committees & Social Groups
Pursuing art is on hiatus.
The Membership Committee is responsible for the growth and retention of our congregational membership. As such, we are the Hospitality folks. We make sure all visitors and guests are welcomed warmly, and provide them with information about who we are and our UU faith. Our Greeters are the first to extend a greeting when you walk in the door. You will be directed to our Welcome Table, where we offer the opportunity to wear a name tag so that the members of our congregation might recognize you and offer a friendly ‘hello.’
The Membership Committee also coordinates:

Social Justice: The committee identifies issues of local, national or world significance where UUCL can provide advocacy, education, and individual or unified action. Action may be by the committee or the Congregation at large. Activities of the committee help the congregants live the seven UU Principles and strengthen the bond between UUCL, the Community and the World.
UUCL collects food weekly for donation to the Sandalwood Community Food Pantry. An organization that helps families in time of need make ends meet by supplementing their monthly groceries. This is just one way that UUCL reaches out to help those in our community who are in need.
UUCL joins with other local congregations to support Family Promise of Beaufort County. The congregation provides situational homeless families overnight lodging and meals. Activities are for up to four families, for one week at a time, four times per year. Volunteers are responsible for preparing dinner, set-up and break down of the families’ rooms and staying overnight. UUCL has been dedicated to this work for seven years.
Contact UUCL to learn how you can get involved.
