Program Council

Sunday, June 10, 2018 - 12:00pm - 2:00pm
Location: Conway Middle Room

The next Program Council meeting will be held Sunday, 10 June 2018, at noon in Conway Hall. Committee chairs, representatives, and other church members are invited to join us for this important meeting as we start coordinating church events for the year.

Program Council's charter is summarized below:

Objective: To facilitate communication and provide a link between church committees, interest groups, and the congregation as a whole; to integrate and coordinate activities of committees and interest groups; and to ensure the smooth operation of church programs within the Bylaws and policies established by the Board of Trustees.

Membership: Program Council will be chaired by the Vice President of the Board of Trustees, who is responsible for convening the meeting and setting the agenda, with input from all council members. The chair will only vote to break a tie. Voting members will include the chairperson of each active church committee. Should the chairperson of a committee be unable to attend a Program Council meeting, that chair will designate an alternate from the committee to attend. It is preferable but not mandatory that each interest group also designates a representative to the Program Council, in a non-voting role. The Minister, the President of the Board of Trustees and the Office Manager are ex-officio non-voting members.

Meetings: The Program Council will meet once every three months. Additional meetings to deal with urgent matters may be called by the Chair in coordination with other Program Council members. All meetings are open.

Monthly Immigrant/Refugee Planning Meeting



Thursday, June 21, 2018 - 6:30pm - 7:50pm
Location: Front Office

Location: Front Office
This Social Justice subcommittee meets monthly to identify and organize our Church's participation in projects that support the farm worker, immigrant and refugee communities. Our current direct outreach is focused on supporting two refugee families, from the Congo, adapt to their new home here in St. Pete, as well as one immigrant family from the Caribbean. We also advocate for systemic change -- in particular fair and just treatment for all immigrants including the negotiation of labor and wage practices for farmworkers in the fields of Florida, assurance of due process for the undocumented, protection of the DREAMers and the retention of in-state-tuition for immigrant students.

To counter the current negative and fearful messaging about immigrants and refugees -- it is important that we come together and take positive action. We welcome your ideas and encourage your involvement in this very loving and meaningful work.

We are always looking for volunteers. Whether you want to donate your time or money, we would love to hear from you. Contact Karen at migrants@uustpete.org
