UUCS and Spokane Alliance

In 2005, the UUCS joined the Spokane Alliance, a non-partisan and non-profit alliance of congregations, unions, school and community groups in Spokane County dedicated to making Spokane a better place for all. Using consensus, we work toward these three main goals:

  • Strengthen each member organization.
  • Develop local leadership
  • Act in the public arena for the common good

Mission and Culture

The “UUCS Core” team’s mission is to promote social justice and develop community leaders; to inform congregants about public meetings, hearings and other gatherings that promote a stronger, more just community, while encouraging a relational culture within our congregation by supporting one-on-one relational meetings between congregants.

The relational meeting, a face-to-face, one-to-one encounter,
-explores the possibility of a public relationship with another person.
-is the glue that brings people together and allows them to embrace the tension of living between the world-as-it-is and the world-as-it-should-be, and
-is a forum in which we meet each other to create connection.

We encourage relational meetings because we are a people defined by what we do.

Invitation to Get Involved

Say “yes” when one of us invites you to a relational meeting.
