Meet Our Ministers
Reverend Melora Lynngood and Reverend Shana Lynngood
“Welcome to our vibrant and welcoming congregation! We are delighted you are interested in learning more about, and exploring the possibility of making the First Unitarian Church of Victoria your spiritual community. We began our co-ministry in 2010 at a time when the congregation was about to celebrate its 50th anniversary.
“Come join us for worship on Sunday morning or come participate in one of our community events or small groups. However you choose to get involved, we hope you’ll come see all that our congregation has to offer.”
It’s been 10 years since Rev. Melora Lynngood and Rev. Shana Lynngood became our co-ministers. Enjoy a stroll down memory lane.
