Our Annual Meeting last Sunday gave the membership an opportunity to review some reports, elect new officers, and approve the budget for 2017. It was a productive meeting; I am grateful for the unified spirit here. If you would like a copy of the annual report, there are a few extra copies in the foyer.
Some of the major items of business were:
1 – Election of officers. Please remember them in prayer.
Deacon: John Willis SS Superintendent: Timothy Eachus
Church Clerk: Marilyn Willis Treasurer: Ed Campbell
Mission’s Committee: Timothy Eachus and Diane Campbell
2 – The 2017 Budget was approved at $96,000. This is an average monthly need of $8,000. We increased the mission’s budget from $7,000 to $10,000 for the year.
3 – Two capital improvements were unanimously approved: One for a new roof/new enclosed porch on the parsonage, and the other for some electrical work which will include parking lot lighting.
Special conference – save the date! Our fellowship of churches is holding its annual Rejuvenate Conference on Friday, March 24th at Hardingville Bible Church. It will run from 10:15 AM and end around 6:30 PM. There will be a few workshops by various speakers; the keynote speaker is Evangelist Mark Kittrell. The cost is $15 and there will be refreshments, lunch, and dinner. There is no charge to only attend the 5:00 PM banquet, but a love offering will be collected to help with the cost of the meal and a new a/c for the Tri-State Bible Camp’s dining hall. Please sign up on the bulletin board if you intend to go. See pastor, if you have any questions. This conference is not just for pastors, but anyone who wants to go!
Sweetheart’s Getaway… Feb. 10-11 Dr. Bud Steadman is the speaker. Pick up a brochure in the foyer and register!
