UUSGS is a dynamic place these days. We’re thriving. We’re growing. We’re trying new things.
We’re meeting cynicism with creativity and hope. We’re celebrating love. We’re caring for one another and standing for human dignity. A sense of vitality is everywhere!
… which puts us in a good position to ask and answer some important questions, like: Where do we want to be in a few years? What will our community look like? Who will we serve? How might we embody our values even better than we do today?
Last year, the UUSGS Board of Trustees – working with Rev. Jason – commissioned a team to begin to shape a visionary, collaborative conversation about strategic planning. The conversation was to include big considerations, such as our building and land, our staffing, parking and access improvements, and our overall public identity.
The result of the team’s work is a draft strategic plan that is already informed by lots of listening and research. The next step in the process – which begins now! – is full dialog and engagement as a congregation.
The draft strategic plan can be found here, or by clicking on the logo below…Once you’ve familiarized yourself with the plan a bit, you are inited to attend one of several cottage-style meetings set to occur over the next couple of months. Questions are welcome! These meetings will be informative, visionary, and fun. In addition to gathering feedback, these meetings are also a great way to build community and get to know one another. Refreshments will be served. You do not need to be a member of UUSGS to attend; however, members are especially encouraged to attend. Following this period of dialog and review, the plan will be presented at the Annual Meeting of the congregation (6/2) for an up-or-down vote.
Cottage meetings will occur:
- Sunday, March 25th – 1:00 to 2:30PM
- Monday, March 26th – 2:00 to 3:30PM
- Saturday, April 7th – 1:00 to 2:30PM
- Wednesday, April 11th – 6:30 to 8:00PM (childcare available)
- Sunday, April 15th – 1:00 to 2:30PM
RSVPs are not required but are welcome. Sign-up sheets are available in Friendship Hall.
Love will prevail! Big dreams and well-thought plans will make sure of it!!
