Search Process Linkage Meeting – On Sunday, December 10 at 12:30 pm (after the second service), the OUUC Board will host an informal linkage meeting to share the proposed process for selection of search team members and the search timeline. This will be an opportunity to learn about how we plan on launching our process to call a new settled minister in 2019 and provide feedback on this first phase of the process. Please mark your calendar and plan on joining us.

At its Special Meeting Tuesday night the board also approved a balanced budget for presentation to the congregation at the upcoming Congregational Meeting scheduled for Friday, December 15, 2017, at 7:00 pm preceded by our traditional sweet and savory potluck at 6:30 pm. (See Treasurer Wendy Tanner’s related article about the budget.) Look for the agenda, minutes, Welcoming Congregation Resolution and budget information in the formal meeting notice which will go out to members later this week.

The board also authorized the application for refinancing of the church’s mortgage and approved expenditures from the Major Maintenance Fund recommended by the Building and Grounds Committee to cover the cost of removal of three dead trees along division this coming week. The next regularly scheduled board meeting will be Thursday, December 14, 2017, at 7:00 pm. Please, direct questions or comments to Don Melnick, Vice President, or other board members this coming week.
