Board adopts guiding vision for stewardship, budget

Guiding Vision for PNC Stewardship & Budget

By Hillary Coleman - Moderator

Everything about this year looks different than any of us could have imagined. I have deep gratitude for everyone in the PNCUCC for showing up however you can in these COVID times.

The board continues our busy meetings and is doing good work to respond to current needs, plan for the new year and think into the future.

• At recent board meetings we adopted the Fiscal Policy Manual, Personnel Policy Manual and the Fiscal Year 21 revised budget proposal from Stewardship for 12/2020-5/2021.

• The Board blessed planning for a virtual Annual Meeting in April 2021 and identified areas of focus of work in our current times.

• The Board also adopted a guiding vision to share with Stewardship Committee as they do budget work and share future plans with the conference:

“The Pacific Northwest Conference of the UCC is called to do justice, love kindness, and walk humbly with our God (Micah 6:8) to create vitality. Our Board of Directors believes that in spite of financial difficulties and a pandemic, our Conference has a vitality growing in ways we didn’t realize would happen during these changing times.

“Our vitality is built on a strong foundation of years of relational work, and we want to see it continue to grow so that we can change the world. In the coming years, we envision the presence of the PNCUCC being somehow bigger than it is now.

“We see specific action steps being taken to undo white supremacy culture in how our conference is run so that we can use an anti-racist lens in all aspects of conference life and truly deepen our inclusion.

“We see churches, members and people in the conference increasingly connected so that we can support one another and our communities in the work we are called to do.”

Thank you for being part of and inspiring this work.
