Sunday, May 19, 2019: Annual Meeting

Instead of our religious education hour and service this Sunday, we will have our annual meeting, starting at 10. Please bring a snack to share.

Annual Business Meeting. The annual business meeting shall be held each year on the third Sunday of May, to hear reports of officers and staff, to appoint new officers and committees, to adopt an annual budget, and to transact any other business that may properly come before the congregation.

Agenda

Treasurer’s Report

Election of Officers (Until the beginning of the church year after the membership reaches 15, the officers shall be the President, the Moderator, the Chair of Ministry and Oversight, and a Secretary/Treasurer, who will serve as the Board and Nominating Committee. The congregation as a whole will carry out the functions of the Committee on Ministry and Oversight.)

Bylaws Amendment. (These bylaws may be amended by consensus of the congregation after the amendment has been placed on the agenda for discussion at least three monthly business meetings, or fewer if there are more than sixty percent (60%) of the members present and there is unanimity.) Our Bylaws provide for an outside limited audit every year, which we have never done. We should consider whether we should remove that from the bylaws if we are not going to do it.

UU Lent – Day 45 – Rejoice

“There is not one blade of grass, there is no color in this world that is not intended to make us rejoice.”  ― John Calvin

“This is a day of celebration!
Today, we are divorcing the past
and marrying the present.
Dance,
and you will find God
in every room.
Today, we are divorcing resentment
and marrying forgiveness.
Sing,
and God will find you
in every tune.
Today, we are divorcing indifference
and marrying love.
Drink, and play that tambourine
against your thighs.
We have so much celebrating to do!”  ― Kamand Kojouri

“Rejoice in small things and they will continue to grow”
― Slaven Vujic

 

Thank you all for coming on this Lenten Journey with us. May your Easter be Happy and Bright!
