Phyllis also gave us a video demonstration of how the new Vanco on line giving works. A letter will be going out about this too.

Trustees: The duct cleaning and the carpet cleaning has been done.

SPPRC:  The person that showed interest in the youth and child director position was contacted and that person took another position closer to home.

Christian Education:  Confirmation continues.

Worship: There are still some lighting issues for streaming the service live. It is still being worked on. The decorative lights outside will stay on until Vasaloppet Sunday. Ash Wednesday is February 17, Palm Sunday March 28, April 4 is Easter.  The thought now is that we might be back for worship for Easter.  With outside worship starting as early as May.

Memorials:  Haven’t met recently

Missions: Haven’t met recently

Technology: Still working the kinks out of streaming the worship service…. Lighting mostly.

WICS: no puzzle contest

Men’s Club:  Is not meeting.

Other business: The Facebook page is back up and running.  We need to think about starting Safe Sanctuary training updating.

Worship in person, this will be assessed on a month by month bases. The goal is to be in person on Easter, but only if it can be done safely.

M/S/C Carmel/Ruth to adjourn at 8:12 pm.

Next meeting Thursday February 11, 2021 at 6:30 pm.

Respectfully submitted,

Janell Anderson, Council Secretary
