As we shared previously, Allison Laura (current Office Administrator at UUCM) has shared with Rev. Lisa and the Board her intent to leave her position at the beginning of the New Year to pursue opportunities toward her teaching career.
Our congregation is currently seeking a new Office Admin, who will facilitate the ongoing operations and communications of the church and support a vibrant, connected congregational life. This position serves as a hub of information and creates a welcoming, organized environment for all who come into contact with the congregation. Applications are due by December 15, with a target start date of January 1, 2023. If you know someone who may be a good fit, please spread the word using this link: http://bit.ly/3VmyOvE. Thank you!
For the past 4 1/2 years, UUCM has grown in organizational strength and clarity with the caring, creative and agile leadership of Allison Laura as our Office Administrator. In the midst of constant change, Allison has kept us organized, connected, and supported with the resources we needed at just the right time and with warmth and encouragement along the way.
Allison has shared with Rev. Lisa and the Board her intent to leave her position at the beginning of the New Year to pursue opportunities toward her teaching career. Please see below to read her personal message to the congregation about this decision. We have shared our gratitude with Allison, how much she means to the congregation, and how much she will be missed. We look forward to a special celebration with her on January 8th. We hope you will join us in wishing Allison well on this new chapter of her life. Our loss is education’s gain: the world needs teachers like her!

Sunday, December 11 During Worship
Each and every child and youth will have a part in this beloved UUCM tradition, so mark your calendars now! Adults: If you would like to do a reading, please email Karen by Dec. 3. Parts will be distributed during RE on Dec. 4, with follow-up emails to families confirming. Families: We ask that families arrive by 9:30 on Dec. 11 for our one and only practice, and then sit together in the sanctuary so everyone can enjoy singing the carols together as a family. RE classes will be encouraged to sit in the same general area so it will be more obvious when it is time for their part and can leave together. Sections in the sanctuary will be labeled, but feel free to adjust when families have children in multiple classrooms participating.
