Installation of New Co-Ministers
4:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Sanctuary, Atrium, Fireside, Social + Kitchen
This special event, confirming our calling of the Schmidts as our settled co-ministers, will be the culmination of more than three years of work. In most other denominations, a minister or priest is sent to a congregation by some governing body. In our tradition of congregational polity, or self-determination, it is up to us to call the minister we think is the best match for us, and for that individual to decide if they will accept the call. As part of the installation service, the congregation and co-ministers will formally enter into covenantal relationship with one another. We will be supported by UU ministers and religious professionals, family and friends of the Schmidts, and our Ministerial Search Committee. After the service we will gather for food and fellowship to celebrate.
