WE ARE A SANCTUARY CONGREGATION
Albany Unitarian Universalist celebrates Unitarian Universalism–a liberal, non-creedal faith tradition that is based on a free and responsible search for truth and meaning and the inherent worth and dignity of every person. Unitarian Universalists draw meaning from many faith traditions, embrace scientific reasoning, and express their beliefs through acts of social justice and compassion. For the second time in its history, Albany Unitarian Universalist has declared itself a Sanctuary congregation, repeating the action taken in 1984 in response to refugees fleeing violence in Central America. Albany Unitarian Universalist welcomes everyone.

THE PILLAR CHALLENGE!!

THE PROBLEM

The wooden pillars on the front of our church building are rotting, and need to be replaced.

THE SOLUTION

The Building and Grounds Committee has found a solution to the problem. Pillars constructed from a non-wood alternative have been ordered. They cost $50,000. Although this expenditure could be covered by our Capital Reserve Fund, it would reduce the fund by more than 50%.

THE CHALLENGE

Member, Martha Schroeder has offered to match all donations to the Pillar Replacement Fund up to $25,000. She is challenging the rest of us to raise $25,000. This is an extremely generous offer and we thank her for it!

HOW YOU CAN HELP

You can help meet the Pillar Fund Challenge by placing a check in the box in Channing Hall or by completing this commitment form.
