Branch Ministry

We now have branches in the East Mountains and Socorro.

Our Branch Ministry Mission

First Unitarian’s branch ministry reaches out to small groups of Unitarian Universalists scattered throughout New Mexico who don’t have a nearby church. This ministry will bring these small groups into fellowship with First Unitarian. The program has four ambitious goals:

  • To identify clusters of Unitarian Universalists throughout New Mexico not served by a local congregation and invite them into the First Unitarian organization
  • To fully integrate the branch congregations into First Unitarian with all the rights and responsibilities of full membership
  • To recommend policy and procedures for integration of branch congregations into First Unitarian
  • To develop a model for large-church outreach that can be replicated elsewhere
