We really hope our chosen candidate chooses us, too! The ministers in our final selection of candidates offer great gifts and unique strengths, along with human realities. We as a committee must reflect together on those qualities and evaluate them against the congregation's needs and desires. We take our task very seriously.

You have placed great trust in us, and we respect that. Soon we hope to present our candidate, and you will have the opportunity to discern for yourselves whether we have made the right choice for our congregation.

We want to remind you that we will present only one choice at the end.

For a successful ministry, any candidate will want an overwhelming affirmation in the final congregational vote. If we presented multiple choices, no candidate would receive the almost unanimous "Yes" vote that signifies the affirmation, and the congregation might find itself split into camps.

We value the trust and confidence you have placed in us to make this momentous decision. By the time we present you with our choice, we will have reviewed a number of applications, checked references, interviewed candidates for hours, and discussed the candidates in depth. At every stage, we hold in mind the hopes, dreams, and concerns of our congregation.

When it comes to the final decision, we will offer our selection for an up-or-down, yes-or-no vote.

We're confident that you'll be as enthusiastic as we are about the choice. February 26, After extensive review of a pool of qualified ministers who are interested in us, we have selected the "pre-candidates" for the position of minister for UUCC.

As we get to know these ministers in-depth, through interviews, informal talks, reference calls, and sermons, it seemed a good time to review the ministerial attributes you, the congregation, defined last fall through the survey and meetings.

Here's the profile of the minister we are seeking: We are happy to report that the ministers on our short list seem to fit the bill! The congregation's participation in this process has helped us stay on target, and we're looking forward to the day in early April when we can announce our final choice.

February 12, As we announced in church, the Ministerial Search Committee is ready to unveil the fruits of our labors during the fall, our packet. You played an active part in the creation of the packet as well. Here you will find a summary of the survey results, our congregation record that ministers use to decide if they are interested in us, and many of the pictures you sent.

The packet is a record of who we think we are and how we are portraying ourselves to ministers in search. A hard copy is available for perusal in the overflow room, but you can also access the information online. Thank you all for your help and support thus far. We will continue to keep you posted as the process continues.

January 15, We are in one of the most exciting times of our year in search. We've received names from the UUA of some interested candidates, and are busy reviewing their packets and websites. This is the super-confidential time, as these ministers may not yet have told their current congregations that they are in search.

So we can't share any information about them with you yet, but we are preparing to interview them, based on the information you told us was important in the surveys and meetings. Please don't ask us for specifics, because we can't give you any yet, but know that we are excited to get to know more about these potential matches for us!

We have gathered and focused the data you all provided during the survey, Loaded Questions, strategic interviews, and focus groups, and have prepared the two documents that prospective ministers will use to determine whether they are interested in us.

The first document is called the "Congregational Record" or "CR. Some of the questions in the survey and in Loaded Questions came directly from the CR.

The second document is called the "Packet," and it is what we provide to ministers who are interested in our congregation. The Interim Search Committee prepared a Wordpress site, which we have modified and updated for the Packet for our search for a settled minister.

We have included many pictures to showcase our vibrant community, and details that can't be shown by the CR. Our first deadline was to send both documents to Rev. They must be final by November 30, We'll get a little breather for the holidays, but in January, we'll find out which ministers who are in Search might be interested in us, and begin dialog with them!
