Kathy Covert, Board President
The Board of Trustees, ministers and senior staff met in an all-day retreat on Saturday, August 12. By the end of the day we had committed to this "big hairy audacious goal":
By May 1, 2018 we will have a viable plan to free JUC from the limits of our campus in order to live more fully into our mission.
We've made many creative adaptations over the years to fit our growing congregation and programs into our campus: building a new chapel, holding two services each Sunday morning, and parking at nearby Maple Grove Park. Two more adaptations begin in September. On Sunday, September 3, the first service time moves to 9 a.m. and on Sunday, September 10 we begin livestreaming our services online. But to fully live into our mission--Guided by Unitarian Universalist principles and powered by the energy and resources of its members, Jefferson Unitarian Church acts to nurture our spiritual community, grow Unitarian Universalism, and transform the world outside our church walls-we need more space!
We invite you to attend the October 15 congregational meeting where we will gather ideas. Your ideas do matter; what you think can add value to this project. You are as important as any other member of this church. If we knew we were vital to the physical and spiritual wellbeing of hundreds of people yet to cross our threshold, how would we approach this goal?
