5 Year Plan
50th Anniversary Committee:
The 50th Anniversary Committee is in the process of developing plans for celebrating CUCC’s Golden Jubilee in 2014. The actual date of the first service, January 26, falls on a Sunday in 2014, so that will be a great day to kick off the anniversary year. The Jubilee Celebration will be the weekend of August 23-24. Soon the Committee will send out a questionnaire to the congregation to collecthistorical perspectives over the last 50 years, including key individuals, special events and projects, and mementos. Using this information the Committee plans to recruit volunteers to implement Jubilee events which reflect the mission of CUCC over the years, specifically hospitality (especially “open and affirming”), education, and social outreach.
Fellowship and Community
Myriad groups and individuals have taken on the First Year Goal to strengthen fellowship and build community. A Women’s Group and the Community Compassion Corps have both been formed. There has been focused brainstorming about these topics. Suggestions which have arisen from those brainstorming sessions will be presented to the appropriate commission. A survey is in the works to determine what attracts people to out congregation and how best to communicate with potential new members. We are also looking at ways to foster community, even as we continue to grow.
