Shared Ministry Committee (SMC)

The Shared Ministry committee has extended their deadline for the Annual Assessment.  Please take a few moments to take the survey by following this link:

This survey will take approximately 30 minutes to complete. Your responses are anonymous. Thank you for your cooperation. We hope you enjoy filling out the questionnaire and that in addition to assisting our church, you find this process helpful in reflecting on your faith, the meaning of your church experience, and your hopes for the future. Thank you to everyone who took our annual assessment which provides an important opportunity to work together to assess who we are and where we see ourselves going.  This survey was developed by the Hartford Institute for Religion Research in Connecticut ( and then modified for our use at UUCR.

The survey asks several sets of questions about our congregation’s current ministries and your own involvement, but also seeks your input on church dynamics and your vision for our future. Completing this survey ensures that your views have been heard and it will allow us to measure whether we are moving in directions that we think are important.  Results coming soon! If you have any questions about the survey, contact Lynn Yates at

The SMC committee members are Lynn Yates, Chair; Betsy Biesenbach, Anne Perrin, Don Wages, Barbara Bockner, and Esther Johnson. The SMC meets on the 4th Tuesday of each month.  If you have comments or questions related to the overall health of church ministries, please contact Lynn Yates at
