More Ministerial Search Information

We have been weekly now for nearly 2 months, and many team members are meeting multiple times a week with focus groups in order to flesh out the survey results. Next week we hope to have those results in a format that we can share with the congregation.

Many questions about the search process can be answered by looking at the Unitarian Universalists Association's webpage on ministerial transitions.

Women's Club

Our next Women's Group meeting is Thursday, November 5th, 7:00. We will be celebrating the sisterhood of friends. Bring a poem, article, or short quote to share. Our sisters are such an important part of our support system, and our lives in general. Let's celebrate our connection!
