Our third congregational meeting for the year 2019 will be held this weekend (Sunday, September 8 at 6:00 pm) in Central Hall.
Our congregational meetings are important times for us. Our by-laws and our church culture calls for transparency in our meetings. For this reason and because we are congregationally governed, I hope you will join us for this meeting.
In addition to a lot of information about the church, you will be asked to approve a recommendation from the Finance Ministry Team.
The Finance team recommends we accept a gift by a family in the church of a chapel to be built on the three acres bordered by Bricker Rd, Murphy Rd, and Tyler Street (Highway 21). If accepted and approved, construction will begin as soon as possible (maybe by October 1) and will be completed in about a year.
In addition, you will hear plans by the Finance team concerning our building loan. They are in negotiations to extend the length of our loan and possibly to lower rates as well. This does not require congregational approval, but we do need you to know the plans. We will also have other small items which you need to approve.
In every congregational meeting, I also discuss vision and opportunities for our future ministry to our community and our world.
I look forward to seeing you this Sunday evening.
