Sunday Morning Religious Exploration Coordinator
Brigid Chapin is a student at the University of Maine at Farmington. She was raised in the church, having attended RE herself when it was still held in the Robbin’s Room. She considers this position an honor and a great opportunity for collaboration and growth—it’s a step up for her, who most of the congregation have known since she was tiny. Brigid’s interests include reading, studying, painting, and cooking delicious vegan fare. She already knows many of our children from serving in various roles in the RE program. She can't wait to work more closely with them, helping them grow in spirit and community.
For the past twenty years, Bridget has worked as a church musician. Currently, she performs regularly with the Androscoggin Chorale, pianist Chiharu Naruse, percussionist Lynn Vartan, mezzo-soprano Joelle Morris and the VentiCordi Chamber Ensemble. Bridget serves as part-time faculty at UMF and adjunct faculty at Bates College.
Small Group Ministry Coordinator
My search for a spiritual home has lead us to become members of the Augusta Unitarian Universalist Church in spring 2015 and have been involved in Small Group Ministry. Small Group Ministry provides a way for members to get to know other members in a smaller forum outside of the larger Sunday services. I am hopeful that the skills I have learned in working with groups can be useful in supporting this important ministry of the church. I am very thankful for the opportunity to be of service in the post of Small Group Coordinator.
Monique McAuliffe has been a volunteer at UUCC with Peace Jam and Senior Youth programs for several years. Her passion for providing ongoing program opportunities to all of the children and youth at our church is evident. She has seen how important these experiences have been for her own children’s spiritual growth. Monique values each individual’s unique contribution to their church community and beyond as the UU principles are explored through Coming of Age and put into action through Peace Jam both locally and globally.
