Chalice Lighting and Reading.
Agenda Review.
Personal check in.      
Board covenant read.
Michael Zepeda agreed to be process observer.

Michael Zepeda reported that there were no issues in religious education that need board attention or decision.
Michael Zepeda moved to accept the minutes from the November 3, 2013 meeting.  Second.  Discussion.  Motion passed.  
Rev. Jennifer Innis presented the minister’s report.  We welcomed eight new members today.  Worship is scheduled well.  The committee on ministries met yesterday.  
John Johnson did not have anything to report.

Jean Bruttell presented a report on the Leadership ID committee.  They are willing to accept our assistance.  Their current slate is Michael Zepeda as President, Tina Harmuth as Vice President, Rachel Hawkins as secretary, Judy Gutierrez as Treasurer (maybe), John Johnson as Outreach and Membership Coordinator, Irene Forrester as Education Coordinator, Dave Mikitka as Operations Coordinator, and Lin Wells as Ministry Coordinator.  Jean Bruttell will serve on the Leadership ID committee and will fill that spot on the Board.  Jennifer Cox, Jo Burnham and Paulette Holland have also agreed to be on the Leadership ID committee, so there is one spot still open.  
Sue Lowry has agreed to co-chair the social justice committee. Rev. Jennifer Innis will talk to the social justice committee about the R.E. Council reclaiming the Guest at Your Table program.  
Judy Gutierrez presented the finance report.  We had a deficit in the month of October of $4327.67.  The finance committee is very concerned about our cash flow.  
John Johnson moved that the Board offer the attached motion to the by-laws for vote at the next congregational meeting. Second.  Discussion.  Tabled due to time constraints.

Review of action items:
Rev. Jenn will request a report from Worship Arts for the congregational meeting.
John Johnson will request a report from Membership
Michael Zepeda will request a report from Religious Education Council.
John Johnson will talk to Tasha Morris and Sue Lowry about co-chairing the social justice committee and request a report for the congregational meeting.
Need to be able to illustrate the financial numbers for the congregational meeting presentation, not just state them.
Need to be able to identify bottom line financial thresholds - if we go through the endowment, the UUA won’t work with us, and pledges don’t increase.  
We will meet again Thursday, November 21, at 7:00.  

Process observer comments: We’re doing well self-correctly when we speak out of line.  
Personal Check out.
Closing Words.
Meeting adjourned at 4:37.
