Council Highlights

October 2023

Management Division met on September 14 at 7:00 p.m. We reviewed the August financial reports. Our giving remains slightly ahead of our budget while expenses are still slightly below budget projections through August 31. Our Faith Budget giving is about $1000 behind our estimates.

All reports were unanimously approved. We began our review of the Church Council job descriptions and will continue this in October.

We confirmed the request by Property Division to have our digital LED sign repaired with funds coming from their Building and Maintenance budget. We also agreed to begin the 2024 budget process in October and will confirm any new projects with church council members. Our next meeting is October 10 at 7:00 p.m.

There was a suggestion that Membership Division
start a new outreach for Emmanuel. It was brought to our attention that there are single/widowed/divorced ladies that could use some handyman help for small non-emergency home maintenance work or repairs. The idea is that members will contact the church office and they will then be provided with a list of names and contact info. They can then contact  someone directly. If anyone is interested in being on a list of contacts for this type of service, please contact Peggy.

Did you know that each week Pastor’s sermon text is posted to our Facebook page. It’s a great resource for you if you were not able to attend worship and/or just want to review his message. All posts are  public so anyone is welcome to view this even if you do not have a Facebook account. Find our page at https://www.facebook.com/EmmanuelLutheranSalemOH. We now have 152 followers for our page and it is growing. Thank you for supporting our page and we always appreciate any “shares” of posts. Sharing posts help us to reach more people with the message that Emmanuel is a friendly and welcoming place to worship.

A huge thank you to the volunteers who help me make all the birthday cards that are sent out each week:  Ginny Ballentine, Marsha Wilson, Doreen Stanley, Caryl Evans and Julie Bell. They are such a creative and dedicated group. We meet once a month in the Education Building for fellowship and card making. Cards are also made at home at their convenience. New members are always welcome.
