The Ministerial Search Committee met for the first time on Wednesday, August 4, 2021. Having been approved by the congregation to carry out a search and recommend a ministerial candidate for a congregational vote, we are excited about the important work that lies ahead. We have already begun learning about the UUA’s recommended procedures and guidelines for the search process. Using these guidelines will enable us to benefit from the wisdom gained through many years of experience with ministerial searches throughout the denomination. Please note that we will be using this as a guide. Each ministerial search is unique to the congregation and the time it is taking place. Those who would like more information on the process can find it online in the Settlement Handbook.
