Land Stewardship Committee

ucc of middletonMiddleton Community Church owns approximately 18 acres at the site of our church. As real estate development occurs around us, some have advocated that we should sell a portion of our land to a developer. Others think that our extra land is a blessing for future generations of our congregation that we should try to preserve. The Church Council is forming a Land Stewardship Committee to make a recommendation to the Council, and ultimately to the congregation, regarding the future of our church property.
 
At the congregational meeting, individuals expressed the desire to further explore the option of not selling any land. With short notice, a small number of people attended the first meeting on Wednesday, May 25th. To respond to the expressed concerns, the group will follow up by exploring several options mentioned at the meeting including soccer fields, labyrinth, orchard and community gardens. Using land for retired clergy, the elderly or disabled housing was explored earlier and the findings will be shared with the other options.
 
A cost analysis of keeping the land will be shared with the congregation when the work is complete.
 
The next meeting will be this Sunday, June 5th after the service – all are welcome to attend for an update on findings.
 
There is plenty of work to do in exploring these options and developing a plan for the future. If you are interested in participating in the information gathering, please contact me as soon as possible.
 
If you have an interest in coordinating or leading an effort in one of these areas, please let me know. Congregational interest, time and energy will be key to pursuing many of these options. Please contact me if  you have an interest or expertise we could use.
 
Thank you for your interest and discussion on this important topic. If you are interested in serving on this Committee, please contact the church office at (608) 831-4694 or mccucc@middletonucc.org.
