February 6: Worship Arts and Celebrations Team (WACT) Retreat

For many decades, WACT–the Worship Arts and Celebrations Team–(formerly known as the Sunday Services Committee and the Worship Arts Committee) has helped shape the way we worship on Sunday morning. WACT is guided in its work by the concept of “shared ministry” in which the ministry of the congregation—and in particular the leadership of Sunday morning worship—is shared between the ordained minister and lay members of the congregation.
As part of UUFA’s discernment work in this interim period, WACT will be holding a retreat on Saturday, February 6, from 10 a.m. to noon to explore the following ideas:


  • What is the role of lay leaders in worship planning and execution within a program-sized congregation? 
  • How should WACT be in relationship with a new settled minister?
  • Should WACT develop a covenant to guide the relationship between WACT and our interim minister? 
  • How can WACT be most effective as part of UUFA’s Ministry and Governance leadership model?
  • What does WACT need/and/or what should WACT expect from our staff, our Lay Ministers, and our Board of Trustees?


UUA Congregational Life Staff member Cameron Young will be joining us to offer some outside perspective and guide us in our discernment work. We invite you into this conversation as well.
