Rev. Thomas Perchlik Relocating
Rev. Thomas Perchlik has decided to relocate and is pursuing options for a ministerial setting closer to his family in Pacific Northwest. The Policy Board has initiated a search process, and hopes to be able to identify a great Accredited Interim Minister (AIM) or AIM in training to join us later in the summer. The first round of the structured search process, managed by the UUA, will be over May 20. If you have questions, contact Kathy Wire or another Member of the Policy Board, and watch your email and the newsletter for updates.
