October 18, 2016

Attendees:  Pastor Nick Dimmick, David Loewer, Tim Brandt, Christina Riffell, Amy Brandt, Trudy Koverman, Vince Serraino, and Rick Fennell.

  1. Rick welcomed Vince Serraino as the new Organizational Ministry Team Lead.  Vince conducted a comprehensive evaluation of the church facility and has begun prioritizing the various repair projects.
  2. The Mission Team Leads (MTL) monthly reports are included Atch 1.
  3. As this is the first year that Pastor Nick has been with us, he sought direction as to the December/Christmas services and music.  Concerning music, instead of transitioning to all Christmas songs during the month, we decided to have a mix of the regular contemporary songs we’ve been doing as well as Christmas songs/hymns.  Additionally we won’t have both a formal candlelight service and Christmas Eve service but only a family-oriented Christmas Eve service in lieu of a Christmas morning service on Sunday the 25th.
  4. The September Financial Report was reviewed and Rick noted that the proposed 2017 Budget will be reviewed at the November Board Meeting leading up to a vote by the congregation in December.
  5. Lastly, Rick led the annual review of the Constitution.  Next month the board will review the By-Laws with the aim of taking the revised documents to the congregation the first of December for their review/approval.

Next Board Mtg: Tues, 15 Nov 16
