Staff Changes at Starr King

Update 2.1.2023: We have hired a new administrator! She will start her new role later this month. Stay tuned for details!


There are some important changes in staffing coming up at Starr King UU Church. Our goal is to hire a new Office Administrator who lives locally, to start mid- to late-February. The position, for the most part, will require in-person services at our church location in Hayward. The position combines the tasks currently performed by the remote Office Administrator position as well as the remote Zoom Tech position.

During the pandemic, our Minister, Support Staff and the congregation met in a virtual environment to do the work of the church. Post-pandemic, the needs of our church have changed as we return to in-person gatherings. More recently, it has become evident that Starr King needs an in-person Office Administrator with the skills of the current Office Administrator and Zoom Tech positions.

The transition to consolidate the positions was approved by the SKUUC Board of Trustees, in recognition of the need to host more and more in-person gatherings, including Sunday Services, meetings, and other events.

Emily Watkins, our wonderful virtual Office Administrator, has formally resigned from Starr King, effective February 28, 2023. (She is off to wonderful travel adventures beginning March 2023, hiking the Appalachian Trail!)

Beth Dombach, our wonderful remote Zoom Technician, has recently moved to Pennsylvania and started as a Head Teacher position. Beth will continue as Zoom Technician until a new Administrator is hired. In the future, she is available to work as a contractor for Starr King zoom tech support on an as-needed basis.
