COUNCIL HIGHLIGHTS for March 19, 2018
- Discussed the Personnel Handbook and referred a few questions back to the Personnel Committee.
- Discussed the Ministry Celebrations of Sherry Dickens and Pastor Lynn Bergren and Pastor Virgil Juliot.
- Discussed options for summer worship times and decided unanimously to keep the Sunday 8:30 Traditional and 10:00 Contemporary times rather than 1 worship service.
- Discussed going back to a Sunday School format later in 2018 or early 2019. The staff will work with Children's Church teachers and look at formats and curriculum in the coming months. This would not affect Faithtime.
Approved Mission Endowment's request of $500 for Dominican Republic mission work.
Social Ministry Benevolence Requests
Gave approval to Social Ministry as a part of its Benevolence Policy, granting $600 to Geneseo Kiwanis to assist with the Spring Chicken Feast to defer costs of this event to allow more profits to go to eliminate Maternal Neonatal Tetanus; and $500 to Royal Family Kids Camp to serve abused and neglected children in Henry County, primarily in the foster care system. This gives the children a week of positive memories in a Christian camp environment.
