Last month, the Share Team introduced the idea of exploring the possibility of an additional or alternate nickname for our congregation, in the spirit of improving our brand presence in the wider community. We are in the initial stages of discernment.
The newly-formed Identity Team will lead the congregation in a review of our name history and in activities to explore and express who we are today. The goal will be to help us articulate our essence and launch the Identity Process for our congregation.
These workshops will bring us together to share our thoughts and feelings on this subject and inspire one another. They are the first step in the Identity Process and will lead us to a vote on whether to move forward with adding a name.
Our Process will include:
Workshop offered on two dates
Communal brainstorming; Art wall sharing
Nomination of possible names by members
Vote at January mid-year meeting whether to move forward with the name process
If the congregation votes to move ahead there will be:
Two primary congregational votes to hone members’ name submissions
Final vote by the congregation to select a name
Special congregational meeting with a vote to adopt
We look forward to you joining us for this process. Please address any questions to Identity@chaliceuu.org
The Identity Team: Casey Dake (Chair), Annie Barker, Claudia Barton, Kelly Castillo, Susan Dixon & Marcy Wingard.
