SCM is a Unitarian Universalist movement of lay members & ordained clergy committed to promoting a broad spectrum of healing and social justice ministries.  We believe that only through many diverse forms of ministry can we heal the broken, create justice, and live in harmony with the spirit of life.  We hold a vision of a larger ministry that sees the world as its parish.

SCM is working to support community ministry, both lay and ordained, through the following programs and activities:

SCM conducts an Annual Meeting at the Unitarian Universalist General Assembly; provides for networking, support, and collegiality through local chapters; announces annual community ministry awards; provides a twice-yearly newsletter, membership directory, listserv and website; mentors theological students seeking fellowship; and guides laity seeking to live their faith as ministry to the larger world.

We also actively work with the Unitarian Universalist Association, the UU Minister's Association Community Ministry Focus Group, and the Ministerial Fellowship Committee to address community ministry.  Such work was the catalyst that birthed into being the separate fellowship category of community ministry, sanctioned by the Ministerial Fellowship Committee for Unitarian Universalist ministers.
