The mission of the Finance Committee is to ensure that the Melrose Unitarian Universalist Church fiscal resources are managed responsibly and in accordance with the annual budget as developed and approved by the congregation.

The members and long-time friends of Melrose Unitarian Universalist Church are its primary stewards. It is our shared responsibility to take care of it today, so that we can both live our mission and help the church grow and thrive for the benefit of future generations.

We are a self-governing, independent church that relies on every member in order to keep spreading the good word of Unitarian Universalism. Annually, the Church requests a pledge from members – and some friends, too – in order to maintain our programs, outreach, staff, and property.
