Stewardship of this Church

In this website area, you will discover options to:

Stewardship lives in the deep generosity of spirit, which inspires us to be present with and for each other in Sunday services, in Theme Circles and interest groups, and in the simple friendships we find as members of this congregation.

Stewardship also lives in the combined talents that members generously give to support the work of myriad committees, to teach Religion Education classes, to usher at services, and so much more. We share our talents to further our mission – Nurture the Spirit. Engage the Mind. Inspire Action.

Stewardship continues with generous financial contributions from members and friends. These contributions allow us to care for our historic building, to pay our talented staff, and to support our UU outreach activities in Milwaukee and the world.
