In the fall of 2018, we began a process to imagine the future of our building and grounds. A Building Our Future Team was formed to guide this process, gathering information from architectural, real estate, and fundraising consultants. Below is a timeline, updates, meeting links and previous forums. Join the conversation as we build a future to support our mission of being a welcoming, compassionate community that nurtures spirituality and practices justice.

A Timeline

Do you have a comment, suggestion, or questions? Follow this link to submit them. 

The Building Our Future team has created a document containing information for 24 properties (bare undeveloped land) in the Rochester area which have been listed during the past couple of years. The document includes price, size, location and pictures of the properties, and will be updated as new listings are posted. Several congregants have requested this information as part of the discernment process as part of being informed for the future congregational votes.
