Member Meeting Recap
Thanks for making a boring ol' church member meeting so happy. It's hard to describe what it feels like to be part of a church that feels more "family" than it does institutional or an event.
Behold, how good and pleasant it is when brothers dwell in unity! It is like the precious oil on the head, running down on the beard, on the beard of Aaron, running down on the collar of his robes! It is like the dew of Hermon, which falls on the mountains of Zion!
For there the Lord has commanded the blessing, life forevermore. (Psalm 133 ESV)
Our pastors shared the purpose behind the 52 SUNDAYS project...more joy on Sundays, more help reaching our guests, and the correlation they've observed between Sunday attendance and a host of spiritual concerns.
We published our first Church Membership Roll. Pastor Eric informed us of plans to regularly update the list, to notify any member we remove (in writing), and about the unpublished "Care List".
Pastor Mike presented a financial update and encouraged us to be prepared for greater opportunities to give in the future. It appears we will soon have "more ministry than money."
Pastor Eric presented a proposal for establishing a Deaconate Ministry. We were asked to review it and provide feedback to the pastoral team by March 1, 2014. (Click here for the Deaconate Ministry Proposal)
