  1. It was noted that the Constitution and By-Laws update which was voted on 12 Nov passed 30-1.

 

  1. The proposed 2018 Budget will be made available to the congregation to review with a targeted date of 10 Dec to vote on it.

 

  1. Pastor Nick presented 2017 church attendance and offering historicals. It was noted that we’ve kind of plateaued for now but the important thing is pursuing those who don’t attend on a regular basis in love and grace.

 

  1. A couple ideas were bantered around for church social activities and the frequency; quarterly was recommended. And in light of the 200th anniversary of the church coming up shortly after the New Year, a pot-luck right after church will most likely be organized.

 

  1. The board decided to push their next meeting out to the first of the year as noted below.
