‘Lay-led congregations’, of which Red River UU Church is one, are congregations that lead themselves without a minister. Unitarian Universalism has a proud history of congregational lay leadership. Our congregation is responsible for every aspect of our organization. Though volunteer committees and elected congregational boards, lay leaders manage most aspects of our Unitarian Universalist Church life, including:

  • Organizing and leading worship services
  • Choosing religious education curricula for adults and children
  • Maintaining our building and facilities
  • Managing finances
  • Determining congregational positions on social and earth justice issues
  • Determining the vision and growth of our congregation
  • Honor the Democratic process in our leadership

We are proud of our lay leadership and they are named with contact information below.
