• Dear NUUC Members and Friends,

    At the vote at the congregational meeting on December 16, the congregation overwhelmingly approved the hire of architect Kay Onwukwe and builder Shaun Greer to develop a schematic design for building expansion (to present for congregational approval this winter).   While Kay will be using some of the programming work already done by our previous architect, Dave Kerr, Kay would also like to have the opportunity to hear directly from any members of the congregation directly about their hopes for the new design.  Towards that end, all are welcome to join us in an Architectural Visioning Meeting on January 25 from 4 PM to 6 PM in Fellowship Hall. Rumor has it tracing paper will be involved!!

    Should the congregation show enthusiasm for Onwukwe’s design, our consultant Barry Finkelstein, will return in March to train stewards, and we will launch a combined annual pledge and capital campaign drive this Spring.We are using this opportunity to permanently relocate the annual pledge drive to the spring, also changing the fiscal year from its current association with the calendar year to a July fiscal start.  We ask that congregants simply extend their pledge at their current levels until the campaign launch.  Email minister@nuuc.org to indicate if you would like to increase your pledge, or if you need to decrease it due to changed circumstances.

    Sincerely,

    Your NUUC Board of Trustees
