Create and publish a systematic step-by-step process for visitors to transition to membership. Publish and make available to interested visitors.
Identify three Fellowship events/activities to focus congregation energy behind; do a bang-up job with each.
Monthly, announce during worship a fun activity taking place in childrens’ Religious Exploration and tie this to a “Super Volunteer of the Month.”
Come up with a program to reach out to members who go missing, “No Member Left Behind,” and put it into practice.
GOAL 3: Increase our congregation’s ability to serve the greater community
1. Establish system for drafting and deadline for revised Mission Statement for approval.
2. Nurture and support our Social Justice Committee, encouraging them to establish two FOCUS
Projects and assist in rallying full congregation support.
3. Support stewardship efforts with one successful church-wide fundraising event.
Participate as a church community (with banners, literature, t-shirts, etc) in two local community service activities.
Provide 50% increased information to the congregation on priority issues from the UUA General Assembly. In 2012, that topic is ethical immigration policies.
