Special Congregational Meeting on June 13

The Board of Trustees has called a Special Congregational Meeting via Zoom for Sunday, June 13, immediately following the worship service. The primary business will be a congregational vote to increase authorized spending for the total modernization of the church HVAC system.

As a reminder, in October the congregation voted to authorize spending on this project of up to $175,000 but the Board subsequently learned that the original cost estimate was far too low. The Board will ask for a congregational vote in favor of an increased amount.

You can find more information about the HVAC Modernization Proposal on this HVAC Overview. We encourage all members to attend to ensure a quorum.

Please stay tuned after the vote to hear a presentation on the 8th Principle Project. The Zoom link will be emailed to all COR members.

Sunday Schedule

Scheduled activities at the church are currently cancelled or have moved online. This decision was made out of an abundance of caution, following the leads of several other religious institutions, and the advice of the UUA.
