We are excited to announce that Mesabi UU is now handicap accessible! We have a lift that will take you either up or down from ground level.

Our Congregation

Mesabi Unitarian Universalist Church (MUUC or MUU) is a religious non-profit membership organization. A 14 year and older person aligned with our principals becomes a member by signing the membership book and making an annual contribution that is recorded (by check or envelope with member name) in the Treasurer’s ledger.

Pledges and offerings to MUUC include:

1) Support for our local MUU church building upkeep and program costs: a pledge (promise of support) mailing or emailing request to members and friends is sent in early spring ahead of our annual membership meeting (usually held on the first Sunday of May) asking for support of our annual budget. Pledges are usually paid by check for record keeping and are place in the offering basket or mailed to the church P.O. Box address.
2) The Unitarian Universalist Association of Congregations (UUA) and (more locally) Mid-America District of the UUA asks our church for annual support of $85 (2020) per local member. In the fall a second Pledge mailing request is sent asking members for this support. Our MUU Treasurer accumulates these gifts and forwards payments each year to the UUA Annual Program Fund and District.
3) The weekly service offering basket also accepts cash or check gifts.

Mesabi UU is a legally register/filed entity with St. Louis County and MUU has by-laws for management and procedures. Copies of these documents are kept in a three ring binder in the office and available to all. Printed copies are provided to newly elected members of the MUU Board of Trustees. Email or printed copies are available to members if requested.

MUU Board of Trustees consists of a President, Vice-President, Secretary, Treasurer who are elected annually and three member Trustees elected to three year staggerd terms.

MUU Policies include: 1. Project Review Policy for persons of committees wanting changes that to the building, contents or grounds. 2. A Rental Policy and Agreement form allows rental use of the build (for members’ family use the rental fee is waived). 3. A Safe Congregation Policy for management procedures to protect staff, children, youth, vulnerable adults, friends and all members of our congregation.
