Due to myriad circumstances, a continuation budget was passed at the last congregational meeting. These include:

1)    The PPP application was still pending.
2)    We did not know who the interim minister was going to be or their compensation
3)    General uncertainty surrounding COVID.
 

It was decided that when the new minster arrived we would develop a Budget for 2021-22 and present it to the congregation. Click Here for the for the proposed Budget.

Additionally, the Board convened a task force to revise the Church Bylaws. The taskforce consisted of Board President, Sarang Joshi, Former President Ed Derringer, Former President Erin Johnson, Peter Grundfossen and Rick Langer. The Bylaws needed to be updated because:

1)    Outdated gendered language
2)    To bring us in line with UUA recommendations and Best Practices.

Questions and Answers with congregation

First Unitarian Church has always been in the vanguard of even UU churches in Environmental issues. However, our dependence upon paper has forced us to recognize that we can (and need) to do more in regards to building a sustainable planet. Therefore, our newsletter (The Torch) will be paperless in the new Church year beginning with the August 15, 2016 issue.

Please connect with the church website for all future issues of The Torch as well as generally learning more about the church and our many activities. Realizing that the new policy may cause a genuine hardship among some of our more elderly members, a few paper copies of The Torch will be available at the church.

Thank you for your understanding as we, along with a growing number of churches and institutions, move into a paperless era.

(for now, we will keep the regular Torch deadlines. We may feel we need to revise as the new process goes forward, so please check back at http://www.slcuu.org/news/the-torch often to keep up on the latest submission dates).
