Draft Church Profile Document Ready for Review

The Draft #1 of our Church Profile that will be shared with those interested in applying for the position of permanent pastor has been shared with the congregation via the church email listserv. If you would like a copy, please email Ann Kiefert ( Here is an excerpt from the announcement:

Please review the document and offer feedback to any of the team members by Sunday, May 12. Contact information is below. We have included a blank copy of the profile as well from the national UCC, for your better understanding of their requirements of us.

Please note:

  • A second draft will be presented to the congregation Monday, May 20. Church members will formally vote on the final draft at the congregational meeting Sunday, May 26.
  • Much of the profile is statistical; other parts were answered with information gathered from the congregation via the online/hard copy survey and focus groups conducted in April, as well as Shelly’s knowledge as pastor.
  • The answers to questions that rely on congregational input reflect majority of survey votes and common themes among verbal and written comments.

NOTE: There are a couple questions lacking financial data. We are still researching that information. It will be filled in before the congregational vote May 26.
