Division Spotlight
From our Council Division Chairs

Management Division met on April 12 at 6:00 p.m. Susan Johnston was unable to attend. Sue presented the March financial statements, which were approved unanimously. Things are slowly improving in March. We are expecting the Easter week services to help with our next report. We discussed setting up a new account for funds being received for Faith Formation direct donations. Pastor reported that we had received $5850 to date to go toward the new air-conditioning project for the Fellowship Hall. Our next meeting is Tuesday, May 10 at 7:00 p.m.

Property Division met on April 5, 2022 in the Education Building parlor. The committee shared ways we see God working around us in our lives and in the world. The list of open items from March’s agenda was updated. The plat map and new deed required for the shed permit is complete. The air conditioners for the Education Building are received at Tolson’s and installation will start soon. The Smucker House arborvitae replacement plan was reviewed and will be decided by Council at their meeting.

  • Motion to approve revised quote by Soltis Julian to provide electrical wiring for the new air conditioners was made by Don Kuner and second by Dorothy Conser. This brings the total cost in at estimate.
  • Motion to approve quote from Specialty Products for downspout repair on Education Building and church by Dorothy Conser as long as it includes tuck point repair behind downspout, second by Don Kuner.
