The authority of the church comes from the congregation. Members meet once a year to vote on a budget and carry out other church business. The meetings are open to everyone and are held in the Parish Hall. Day-to-day operations are overseen by a member-elected 11-person board of trustees that meets the second Wednesday of each Month to discuss church issues.
Our Church is a member of the Northern New England District (NNED) of the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) in Boston, Mass. Our congregation, like other Unitarian Universalist congregations, acts independently of the UUA. We voice our opinions on national and international issues through an annual referendum held by the national association.
We, the members of the Board of the Unitarian-Universalist Church of Saco and Biddeford, covenant together to act compassionately and honestly in relation to one another.
We are committed to creating a place of trust, support and learning where open mindedness and respect are part of our spiritual practice.
