Groups and programs organized into four ministries

As First Unitarian has grown, so have the many programs, groups, teams, committees, task forces, classes, social events, and interest groups. In an effort to create an organization plan to maintain coherence and communication across the increasingly diverse array of groups and programs, the governance recognizes four organizational groups called ministries. Each ministry has a liaison on the Prudential Committee. They are:
