Division Spotlight
From our Council Division Chairs

Management met on July 12 at 6:00 p.m. along with Susan Johnston. Sue and Susan reviewed  and presented the June financial statements which were approved unanimously. Our yearly budget still remains close to projections. We unanimously approved four motions to be presented to Council.

  • We finalized updating the Church Alternative Forms of Communication Policy.
  • We voted to donate $1000 to the Curing Retinal Blindness Foundation using monies from the Oliva Hoffman Fund.
  • We approved allowing the current Wilson Street homeowner living across from the church
  •     parking lot access to two parking spots for in-use only vehicles, and signing an agreement.
  • We approved using Thrivent Funds up to $500 for four additional Faith Formation “Kids Club”  fall events.

Finally, Vic updated the committee on the previous night’s Endowment Board Meeting.
Our next meeting is Tuesday, September 13 at 6:00 p.m.

Rally Day will be held on Sunday, September 11 beginning at 9:15 in the Fellowship Hall. We will be collecting items for Operation Christmas Child for Samaritan’s Purse. Items that are needed include:

A complete list will be in the September newsletter and available at the church. No food or liquids can be   included. Back to school and clearance sales are a good time to pick up some of these items.
