2018 Church Council Update
The new Church Council for 2018 has met several times this year to begin preparing for leadership in 2018. This new council, utilizing a simplified form of leadership, will function as the Council, Finance, Staff-Parish Relations and Trustee Committees. To enhance communication within the church, Penny Cooper, our Secretary, will be sharing council minutes of each business meeting in the monthly newsletter.
The Council plans to meet twice a month throughout the year for “Loving, Learning & Leading.” Typically, on the first Sunday of each month, we will meet for “Loving & Learning:” sharing a meal, Glory sightings of God’s work in our church, and practicing spiritual formation. We will then meet again on the third Thursday of each month for “Leading”–conducting the business of the church. All council meetings will be open for anyone to attend, except for times designated for Staff-Parish Relations work. If anyone wishes to attend a meeting and lets a council member know, we will be better equipped to accommodate guests.
Our 2018 Council Members are (with class years beside their names):
Corey Railey 2019 Chairperson & Lay Member to A.C.
Steve Kilgore 2018 Lay Leader & Staff-Parish Relations
