Capital Campaign Update – Moving Towards a Bright Future

          A:   A capital campaign is a once-a-generation opportunity for a congregation to come together and invest in its future.  It is a means to define and realize our vision of what UUCV can become.

Additional information will be developed through: continued congregational involvement; research into various projects by the  board and Capital Campaign steering committee;  the service and training conducted by Reverend David Pyle on August 20; cottage meetings that are scheduled between August 20 and early September.


Sunday, August 20 – Rev. David Pyle Leading Worship and Following Workshop

“Held by a Vision”. The Rev. David Pyle, UUA Staff Primary Contact for UUCV, preaching, with Bev Motich, Worship Associate.

After the service, we will have a light lunch and then return to the sanctuary for Rev. Pyle’s workshop on visioning. He will challenge us to turn our implicit assumptions into an explicit understanding of the mission, vision, culture, and identity of our congregation. This service and workshop are the kickoff to our three weeks of Cottage meetings – small, creative discussions about our hopes and dreams for the future of UUCV.


How Do We Dream Big for UUCV’s Future?

There’s still time to sign up for a Cottage Meeting. These small gatherings will allow you to share your hopes and dreams for UUCV. In this critical first step in the planning for a Capital Campaign, participants will collectively help shape many possible futures. After all the meetings have been held, and all your input has been transcribed, the Committee on Ministry will pass that comprehensive report on to the chairs of Phase Two for cost estimates.


To make signing up easier, you may call Pam Martin at 717-249-8944 or email her at . She will sign the sheet for you.

Each meeting is limited to 10 guests. So check your schedule and sign up soon!
