Congregational Meeting
Sunday, December, 10, After Service, Great Hall
The Board of Directors has advocated a refinance of the current mortgage to fund essential building and ground improvements. More specific information will be coming soon, as contractor proposals are now being reviewed. Only members of the church can approve the refinance. 

Based on input from many members, and after much discussion, the Board has voted to postpone the congregational vote on refinancing until the December 10 Meeting. The general feeling was that more details are needed, and in fairness to the congregation, the information needs to be publicized in time to give everyone a chance to digest it. This will happen over the next few months, through Town Halls, presentations, and website postings, as the project unfolds. The Board sees this as a necessary step toward achieving a 21st Century Church. For more information, please contact Jerry Morrison at jrmorrison1@gmail.com, or any Board member at board@uucl.org.
