Envisioning Our Future: A Congregational Conversation
Please join the UUCC Vision Steering Team on Sunday, November 23, from 4:00-6:00 p.m. in the Sanctuary for a conversation about the Vision Process. The first part of the agenda will include introductions of the Team, a background of the Vision Process, a review of your input on the vision objectives/questions, and a review of the Team's research of current and projected demographics for the Charlotte Metropolitan/Metrolina area, including data about religion. You will then have an opportunity to participate in discussions about the information provided and to share your knowledge and observations to help with this important process. This will be the first of many opportunities for you to participate in the Vision Process. If you have questions and/or comments, please talk with a Vision Steering Team member or send an email to WhyVision@uuccharlotte.org.
