The Military Ministry offers community for military families who seek a more liberal spirituality and practical ways to raise children in this complex world. There are opportunities for volunteers to moderate a Facebook group for UUs in the military and to create small group ministry for those in the military. Please contact Lorraine Dennis, CLF Executive Director, if you are interested in these volunteer opportunities.
