What Is The PCD?

The Unitarian Universalist Church of Palo Alto is in the Pacific Central District (PCD). The Pacific Central District (PCD) is a member of the Pacific Western Region, one of five regional bodies of the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA).

Our 37 member congregations are in northern Nevada, northern California, and Hawaii, giving us an official membership of 6,306 Unitarian Universalists (as of February, 2015). We are the home to two emerging congregations, Live Oak UU Fellowship in Alameda, California, and the Unitarian Universalists of West Hawaii, in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii, along with members of the Church of the Larger Fellowship. We are also home to two seminaries, the Starr King School for the Ministry and the Pacific School of Religion.

Our Mission

Our mission is to provide services and resources that will grow the District in terms of its membership, the deepening of our faith, the effectiveness of our structures, and the power of our service to the wider world.

Governance

The PCD is run by a partnership of professional and volunteer leadership. An elected, seven-member Board of Directors governs us. The voting board members are elected to two-year terms at the Annual Meeting. Ref: https://pcduua.org/about-the-district/
