5/25/2023 Important Update: Budget Vote Tabled at Annual Meeting
Dear Members and Friends of UUCK,
Last night after consultation with Regional Staff (who Zoomed in to talk with us) and thoughtful conversation about our proposed budget for FY2024 and deep concerns in the congregation about our finances, the Board voted unanimously to table a vote on the budget during the annual meeting this Sunday. We will conduct other congregational business but we will not vote on the budget at this meeting.
Since our bylaws do not require us to vote on the budget at a certain time or at an event, the Board felt it best to slow the process down and to engage you in some conversation about our values, our priorities, our long term financial health, and our budget’s alignment with our vision and mission. The Board will announce several opportunities to gather in person (there will be a Zoom opportunity as well) in June in order to listen and engage in an open and thoughtful dialogue so that we have enough information to revise or present the proposed budget, knowing that we have done the work of listening, collaborating and strengthening our relationships so that we can continue our life and work together. Please make these conversations a priority and plan to attend so that your voice can be heard.
If you have questions or concerns, please reach out to the Board ([email protected]). Thank you for being a part of our spiritual community and for your care and participation in our shared life and ministry. What we do together matters!
Your UUCK Board of Trustees and Rev. Steven
