For approval by the congregation of the Unitarian Church of Harrisburg
We, the congregation of the Unitarian Church of Harrisburg, affirm that we are unified in our desire and commitment to be one church with two locations. We commit to working together to support each location in providing programs and services that demonstrate our principles and values. For the purpose of generating funds and to specifically move forward in our service to the Allison Hill community, we approve the following proposal.
The Board of Trustees of the Unitarian Church of Harrisburg is authorized to organize the establishment of a Chalice Center at the UCH Market Street Campus. The Chalice Center will expand programs conducted at the Market Street campus by seeking partnership with other community and faith organizations in Allison Hill. The Board will be responsible for gathering the appropriate committee(s) to study and offer recommendations on 1) a long-term vision and mission for the center and 2) a complete business plan that shall include the conditions and processes to rent or otherwise share space at the Market Street Campus with other community and faith organizations that serve the Allison Hill community, including a plan to immediately pursue rental opportunities. The business plan will set clear benchmarks for success. During the next three years, the Board of Trustees will report every six months to the congregation on the progress of the Chalice Center.
This is a vote to approve this proposal as a part of the mission and vision of the congregation. A majority of "Yes" empowers the Board and staff to proceed.
