A Message from the GNUUC Board
On Sunday, February 23, GNUUC held a congregational meeting. During the meeting, we unanimously approved changes to our Bylaws to reshape our Board, and to follow best practices for the Ministerial Search Committee process. Beginning in the new church year (July 1), our Board will be comprised of four officers (President, Vice-President, Treasurer, and Secretary), and five At-Large members. Also during the meeting we cast ballots for the Ministerial Search Committee.
The Board has taken the ballots and is working to create a balanced Search Committee that will be announced shortly.
And, finally we unanimously approved ordaining Rachel Lonberg! We’ll begin working on an ordination ceremony, and will share details in the next newsletter.
Please note that the below table highlights our upcoming ministerial search important dates.
