Shawn Ultican Board Past President
At our annual meeting on April 17, the congregation made the following decisions. In the coming year we’ll be continuing our social justice theme of “serving the poor and homeless in our community.”
Three members were elected to serve on our Board of Trustees; Peggy Kent, Redge Campbell, and Carolee Effron. And two members were elected to the Nominating Committee; Stella Cole and Alan Searle.
The Charitable giving recipients in the coming year will be; Bremerton Foodline, Thursday Lunch at KUUF, Central Kitsap Food Bank, StandUp for Kids, Kitsap Community Resources, Hospice of Kitsap County, Kitsap Safe Schools Network, Pen- insula Community Health Services, Kitsap Mental Health Services, KUUF's Partner Church, Habitat for Humanity of Kitsap County, and the Illahee Forest Preserve.
After much discussion, the congregation also approved a balanced budget. To make this budget work, we’ll need both additional volunteers to help with some services that we’ve previously paid for, and additional energy put into fundraising efforts. These two topics are discussed in greater detail in the article, Opportunities to Help Support KUUF.
We also voted to authorize transfer of $4,000 from our endowment earnings to the ministerial search fund. And the Board was authorized to sell the rental house, for a price that at least pays off the mortgage and covers the costs of sale, with any profit going into our capital improvement fund.
If you have any questions about these items, please contact our Board of Trustees. Our e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
