Special Congregational Meeting – Sunday, 6/13 at Noon


Dear UUCB members and friends,


A Special Congregational Meeting will be held online this Sunday, June 13, 2021 at noon. The sole purpose of the meeting is to present and vote on the resolution to call Rev. David Schwartz as our settled minister. This meeting will be hosted on Zoom at the main UUCB link: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/3034940195



Whereas: A Ministerial Search Committee (“the Committee”) was elected by the membership of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Boulder (“the congregation”) in accordance with its Bylaws; and

Whereas: The Committee has followed the process defined by the Unitarian Universalist Association for finding a Ministerial Candidate; and

Whereas: The Committee has chosen the Reverend David Schwartz as that Ministerial Candidate; and

Whereas: The congregation has had many opportunities to meet and independently assess Rev. Schwartz; and

Whereas: Rev. Schwartz has reviewed the mission and goals of the congregation and has committed to work together to achieve them;


We, the Congregation of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Boulder, resolve that the Reverend David Schwartz be called as our Settled Minister for an indefinite tenure, in accordance with our Bylaws and the terms stated in the Ministerial Agreement.
