What prompted the Making Room conversation at JUC? How did we get to this point of examining whether our congregation should look for a larger space in our part of Jefferson County?
To answer these questions and bring everyone up to date on the Making Room conversation, Board of Trustees members and Rev. Wendy presented an informational briefing between services on Sunday, March 4th. You can watch the presentation below. It includes JUC membership and visitor numbers, a timeline of JUC’s facility history, a financial snapshot, growth figures of other metro area UU churches, limitations of our existing campus that preclude its expansion, and a map of the potential search area.
As you will see in the video, every speaker urged every single member of the congregation to get engaged in this conversation. After all, it’s the congregation that will make the decision whether to pursue a larger space at a Special Congregational Meeting on April 15th. Please use the time between now and then to read more about Making Room on this website, offer your questions and comments under the Conversation tab, sign up for forums to dig deeper into this conversation, and attend the Stewardship meeting with our outside financial consultant on Sunday, March 11 at 12:30 p.m.
