In the coming months we will be working together to:
  • Claim and honor our past and engage and honor its griefs and conflicts
  • Recognize our unique identity and our strengths, needs, and challenges
  • Clarify the appropriate leadership roles of minister(s), church staff, and lay leaders
    and navigate the shifts in leadership that may accompany times of transition
  • Make appropriate use of Regional, UUA, and other outside resources, and
  • Proudly, come into possession of a renewed vision and strong stewardship,
    prepared for new growth and new professional leadership, ready to embrace
    the future with anticipation and zest

This is the timeline for the two year interim period through which we will be tackling the five critical tasks listed above. The Transition Team will be working to keep us on track. The time line is also on display now in the Fellowship Hall.

If you are interested in what information the Search Committee will be pulling together to create our Congregational Record through a survey of the congregational and “cottage meetings”, here is a template of the questions to be addressed in the Congregational Record.
