May 13 and May 27 at 7:00 p.m.: FY21 Interim Budget

Due to the uncertainty around the long-term impact of COVID-19, and with provisional pledges from all of us, the Standing Committee is recommending an interim budget to get us through the summer and early fall. This interim budget will be revised in early fall and our fiscal year budget voted on at the State of Society meeting. The FY21 Interim Budget and underlying assumptions and challenges will be presented, your questions answered, and your concerns noted. If you would like to view or print out the proposed budget before the meeting, please contact Diana Keohane at This email address is being protected from spambots.

May 20 and June 3 at 7:00 p.m.: ByLaw Changes

On the warrant for our fall State of the Society meeting will be three recommendations for changes to our congregation’s ByLaws. These are the result of a cumulative effort by many people over the course of more than three years. The three areas of focus are membership, welcoming language, and minor clerical and grammatical changes for clarification. We invite anyone interested to come to our Zoom cottage meetings to learn more about these recommendations. Optional reading material will be available prior to the meetings. The meetings will be from 7-8pm on Wednesdays, May 20 and June 3, plus one date to be determined in August.
