Notice of Congregational Meeting

NOTICE OF CONGREGATIONAL MEETING:

Foothills’ Board of Trustees will convene a congregational meeting online on Sunday, Feb. 21st at 10:15 am, to vote on the revised building expansion project and authorize the debt that will allow us to complete the project. The meeting will be held via Zoom in Zoom Room 7.

Unitarian Universalist churches are congregationally led – each church is self-governing, relying on democratic principles to make the major decisions that affect and guide our congregation.

In the fall and winter of 2019-2020, our congregation held a hugely successful Capital Campaign, raising $6 million to fund the sorely needed expansion of our physical campus. Two weeks after we voted to proceed with the final design on March 1, 2020, we went into pandemic lockdown.

Over the last 11 months, we have been tracking the pandemic and economic fallout on our congregation and the larger world. We have revisioned our project for a post-pandemic world. We have a less-expensive design that keeps nearly all of the key elements and a funding structure that we feel is fiscally responsible. We are excited about this revised design, which we feel meets the congregation’s long-term needs and allows us to continue expanding our mission of unleashing courageous love across Northern Colorado and beyond.

A detailed packet on the project will be released later this week. There will be an opportunity for questions and discussion of the revised project and financing on Wednesday, February 17th  from 11:30 am to 12:30 pm.

We welcome all interested Foothills participants at both the Feb. 17th Q&A session and the Feb. 21st congregational meeting.

Per our church bylaws, you must be on the membership rolls at least 30 days in advance of the meeting to vote. If you are unsure of your membership status or have not been on the official membership roll at previous congregational meetings, please contact the Foothills office at (970) 493-5906.

We look forward to seeing you at this important moment in the life of our congregation.

Sue Sullivan

President
