Growing and Deepening our spiritual knowledge is of utmost importance.

Growing & Deepening

Our Growing and Deepening Council firmly believes that everyone has gifts to share with their faith community and the wider world. Unitarian Universalists (UUs) understand ministry as the way we share our spiritual gifts and encourage others to share their own, connecting with what is most meaningful in life. Ordained ministers, or clergy, often have the most visible kind of ministry, but other kinds of professional and volunteer ministry are just as important. The lay ministry tradition in Unitarian Universalism is long and varied. The Bis-Man UU is a lay led congregation at the moment; however, we are searching for a minister.
