    The body has agreed to eventually make a pre-survey as regards the prospective UC Centennial Projects that may be undertaken by the University Church. This survey will solicit from all UC members their suggestions and recommendations as to what key projects - both physical and ministry related - must be undertaken to commemorate the UC Centennial.

    All Committee Chairs were also delegated with the responsibility to find their respective members to assist them in their assignments. UC members are encouraged to support this undertaking.

    The Moderator also disclosed that the Church Council, since last year up to 2013, has approved the allocation of P35,000 per year as Special Fund for this UC Centennial Celebration.

    All Committees will meet again on July 29 to discuss the goals and programs of each committee.
