Introducing Rev. Kristin Grassel Schmidt

Dear UUCSS Members, Friends, and Staff,
We are excited to be able to present the candidate for ministry at UUCSS: Rev. Kristin Grassel Schmidt.
Rev. Schmidt was born and raised in Montgomery County, Maryland. From a young age Kristin encouraged her family to find a church to attend. They began going to Cedar Lane UU Church when she was 8. After graduating from Western Maryland College with a BA in music, she moved to England, attended a UU church there and felt called to ministry. She was ordained in 2015 after receiving her Master of Divinity from Wesley Theological Seminary in Washington, DC. Most recently she has spent the past 4 years as Co-Minister at the UU Church of Berkeley in California. She has also served as minister in Massachusetts and Texas.
She has recorded a message for our church which you can view at
We look forward to the congregation getting a chance to know Rev. Schmidt.
Yours in search,
Katie Kirk Haag, Steve Hirsch, Jeremy Holt, Anna Molpus, Beverly Schnetzler, Lisa Schumaker, and Sharon Ann Snyder
