Guy Newland, Board President
At its July 12 meeting, the Board asked me to support Drew in seeking a waiver of a Ministerial Fellowship Committee rule that, for practical purposes, would prevent him from accepting a call to become our settled minister. Because of that committee’s schedule, we cannot expect a response until late in September.
The Board also voted that UUFCM accept the invitation to join the UU Fellowship of Oberlin in ordaining Drew on July 25. That was an incredibly beautiful Zoom ceremony. Congratulations to Reverend Frantz!
The Board voted to establish a new committee, the Communications Team. Sally Armstrong–who has past experience in this role with another UU church–has agreed to serve as chair. Details will be worked out at the Board’s upcoming retreat, on August 15.
No one applied for our advertised Director of Religious Education position, but Kendra Peffers will stay on through January 10, 2021.
