Nurture Your Spirit

The ministers and lay leaders on SUUSI's Nurture team help us to be intentional about bringing our best selves to SUUSI. They set the tone for the week with Ingathering, a spirited and music-filled introduction to the people, events, and ideals of SUUSI. Weekday worship services offer beautiful music, meaningful rituals, and compelling messages.

Throughout the week, the Nurture team provides support to individuals and communities through age-group chaplains, Ministers on Duty, the OASUUS supportive space for Black and Indigenous People of Color, and supportive space for people in recovery from addiction.

New this year, the Covenant Accountability Team will be present to support people who experience barriers or oppression at SUUSI related to marginalized identities.
