Long-range Planning Meeting

As part of our community’s on-going reflections on stewardship, we need to think not only about fundraising but also about how we spend our money. To this end, the Annual General Meeting in June 2017 adopted the following resolution:

To strike a committee to reflect on the uses to which our investment fund could be put to sustain and grow our community and to make appropriate recommendations in this regard to the Congregation.

The Long-range Planning Committee tasked with exploring ways to expand the Lakeshore Unitarian Universalist Congregation‘s membership met on Monday, November 13. The committee is tasked with exploring ways to best deploy (or not) our financial and other resources. The meeting was well attended and included insights from members who emailed their thoughts.  Although there was no clear consensus on how to move forward, everyone recognized the need to expand our community. Ideas discussed included relocating further west, hiring a part time minister, web/ online presence, strategic investments in marketing and updating our programming.  Timothy Byrnes was appointed Chair of this committee.
