As we reflected on the feedback we’ve received from the congregation and from the Board Listening Sessions, we discerned four goals that we as a church need to explore in order to move more fully into our mission. Our plan is to find a developmental minister who is a good fit for partnering with us on those goals.
Our first goal is “Develop and implement strategies for intentional growth”. We know from feedback at the Listening Sessions that, within the congregation, there are many mixed feelings about growth. We hear you! We understand that collectively we want the best aspects of UUCM to endure. The reality is that we are already growing – best to be intentional about it . . . Our intent is to enhance our community and the formation of interpersonal connections to serve current members as well as new members.
The remaining goal areas are “Leadership Development”, “Long-Term Strategic Planning”, and “Board / Minister Partnership.” We’ll discuss those further in an upcoming Board Update. And as always, please seek out any member of the Board with your feedback.
