Midsize Congregations (those with 150 to 550 members) need specific resources on a wide range of issues. For those of you from congregations of size 150-350 members, here are some resources that you may find helpful.
At the UUA we encourage those in larger midsize congregations (350-550 adult members) to work with our Director for Large Congregations and to use resources geared for larger congregations, as the larger midsize congregation’s dynamics and functioning more closely resemble those of a large congregation
