Notes from Session Meeting

Highlights from Session Meeting, Jan. 7, 2018

 

The Session of First Presbyterian Church is busy with plans for 2018 and we need your input and support.  Thank you to all who have continued to be present in worship and join in prayer and participation as we journey forward.

 

Teams are looking for those willing to use their energy, enthusiasm, imagination, creativity, and support.  Please contact one of the team leaders to volunteer:

Building and Grounds – Ron Gajewski

Worship/Creative Worship – Sandra Burke

Finance – Deanne Mowrer

Evangelism/Mission – Tom Ellison

Spiritual Formation – Marcella Dodillet

Personnel – Linda Anderson

 

We were pleased to learn that Pastor Chris Williams will be the chairperson of the administrative commission (the team of 3 elders and 2 pastors who will share their experiences with us and walk alongside us as we journey forward).  Our first get-together to share information will be on Tuesday, January 30, 2018.  Chris will also serve as our pulpit supply the 3rd Sunday of each month.

 

We have ongoing mission grant funds to be used and have been given an additional $125 from Presbytery/Synod to supplement our choice of creative outreach ministry in this community.

 

The annual report for 2017 is in progress and within the next few weeks, a congregational meeting will be called to share this with you.

 

Thank you again for the ongoing prayers and support for the vital ministry of First Presbyterian Church.

 

Sandra Burke, Clerk of Session
