President’s Corner: January 2018

Hello UUFEC-

It is my honor to let you know that as of Jan 1, 2018, I have started my one year term as UUFEC Board of Trustee’s President. In this capacity, every month, time and energy permitting, I will post Board updates to this President’s Corner.

In general, the UUFEC Board of Trustees meets the third Monday of each month at 6:32 pm at UUFEC (note that January will be an exception to this, being on Monday, Jan 29). We discuss the nuts and bolts of running the church’s day to day operations, as well as long term goals to help UUFEC optimally fulfill it’s Mission. All UUFEC members are invited to attend board meetings. The complete list of our 2018 board is posted under the ‘governance section’ of this website.

This coming year should prove to be an exciting year in our Church’s development for many reasons: We now have the funds to hire a part-time UU Minister and our search committee is well on the way to finding the right candidate for this position; Our committees are all headed by dedicated talented chairs; Our congregation, while small, is concentrated with spirited, dedicated members; And the current political climate motivates many concerned like-minded panhandle citizens to join organizations like UUFEC to stop injustice and promote healthy, compassionate, values and directions for our country.

I look forward to the year ahead and helping UUFEC to grow in the directions needed to make the world a better place. Please feel free to reach out to me or any of your board members, with questions, suggestions or sharing whatever is on your mind.
