May 16, 2017 Update

The Board has contracted with an Interim Minister.  Rev. Kathy Hurt has been a transitional and developmental minister in several churches over her 30 year career in ministry.  She grew up in Texas and life has taken her to California, Michigan, Ohio, and Minnesota.  She's a Meadville Lombard Seminary graduate and was ordained by Unity Church - Unitarian in St. Paul.  She started out in Minnesota helping churches do the transition work of preparing for new ministers.  Over her long career, she's seen it all.  Growing churches, fellowships exploring how to hire their first full time minister, even one church in Ohio that was liberal Baptist exploring converting to our Unitarian Universalist denomination. In between her years of formal ministry, she ran her own community ministry business, did work with women and children and at risk youth and got a masters degree in counseling.  Most recently she's been the Senior Minister at Birmingham Unitarian Church in Michigan where she is finishing out the church year before coming here to settle in for the next two years. Our first Sunday with Rev. Hurt will be August 6th, where we will welcome her with cake and fellowship, so mark your calendars and plan on being here as she introduces herself to us and join us for lunch and celebration after that service.  More at: http://www.kathyhurt.com/
