CHALICE LIGHTERS PROGRAM
The Chalice Lighter Program promotes growth of Unitarian Universalism throughout the SWUUC. SWUUC includes UU Congregations from Oklahoma, Louisiana, Arkansas, most of Texas (excluding El Paso), parts of Missouri and Tennessee, and the Republic of Mexico.
The four districts of the UUA's Southern Region share forms and payment services, but your contribution remains within the SWUUC.
A Chalice Lighter participant gives a minimum of $10 up to three times a year to a Chalice Lighter Call. Some Chalice Lighters contribute considerably more than the minimum. Whatever your level of contribution, the Chalice Lighter Committee is grateful for your support and wants you to know that we strive to be good stewards of your trust.
Become a Chalice Lighter by completing the on-line or mailable pledge form.

Who can apply for a grant?
The Committee will consider Chalice Lighter grant applications from any size congregation seeking to promote membership growth. Any UU congregation in our district that is a Fair Share Congregation and has at least 20% of its members as Chalice Lighters can apply for a Chalice Lighter Grant.
For more information, please contact the Southern Region CL Administrator, Glenn Johnson at 800-751-0750, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
