Settled Minister Search

Greetings from the Settled Minister Search Committee!  As you may know, our former minister retired last spring and we are currently in the process of searching for a new settled minister.  It is important that we gather information from the congregation about their hopes and dreams for the church, as well as statistical information about our congregants to inform this process and complete required paperwork with the Unitarian Universalist Association.  We need your help!

Please complete the Congregational Survey.  To access the survey on-line, please log in to the "Members and Friends" area of the church website and click on the "Congregational Survey for Settled Minister" link (just below the photo).  Paper copies of the survey are also available in the Vestry next to our orange information board.

Also, please try to attend one of our cottage meetings.  Cottage meetings are facilitated discussions about our church and it's future.  The full schedule is at the bottom of this page.

We also ask that at least one member of each family to attend the “Beyond Categorical Thinking” Workshop to be held on October 8th from 12:30-3:30 (soup lunch and childcare will be provided).  Additional details and a sign up will be made available soon.

Your input is VERY IMPORTANT to the Ministerial Search Process!

Please feel free to reach out to any of the members of our committee with questions, comments, or concerns via fpcsettledmsc@gmail.com OR by dropping us an anonymous note in the "Settled Minister Search INPUT" box, located in the main lobby of the church, in front of Deedee's office.  We are happy to answer questions and gather your feedback!

Thank You!
