VCC Board Meeting Agenda

Aug 15, 2017

 

Attendees:  Pastor Nick Dimmick, Tim Brandt, Amy Brandt, David Loewer, Deb Loewer, Trudy Koverman, Christina Riffell, Josh Bolin, and Rick Fennell

 

  1. Deb Loewer gave a run-down of the financial status of the church. A question that she posed was what to do with the money ($197) that was raised for Ellen Grieshop to go on a missions trip as that has been put on indefinite hold.  The board decided to move the money to the Outreach budget and will restore it in the future should the need arise.

 

  1. The Mission Team Leads (MTL) provided their monthly reports (see below).

 

  1. The board finished their review of proposed changes to the Constitution/By-Laws. Rick is finalizing the package to take forward to the congregation.  The intent is to have the marked-up copies available for review starting 22 October w/ a congregational meeting on 12 November to vote on the changes.
