At the March 21, 2017 Board of Trustees meeting, the members took a straw vote which resulted in unanimously agreeing to move forward with the Sanctuary discussion. This meant that the beginning of a sub-committee was formed with current Board members, and with the intention of increasing that committee to include members of the congregation. The charge given this sub-committee was to lead the congregation in a discernment process. This sub-committee includes the following members: Rhiannon Smith, Chuck Northrup, Megan Horton, Angela Garcia-Sims, Sophia Lopez-Zimmer, Mar Cardenas, and Michanne Hoctor-Thompson. We have begun the work of discernment on sanctuary! The following are events in progress and up-coming:
Informational gathering with folks who have experience with sanctuary churches on Sunday, 2/4/18 at 1:00pm, in Bard Hall at the Hillcrest campus.
The Board of Trustees held a forum on Sunday, 2/18/18, after the service at SouthBay; and another on 2/25/18, after second service on the Hillcrest campus.
Many neighborhood groups welcomed Trustees from our Board and members of the Sanctuary Sub-committee to discuss sanctuary and the possibilities.
