APPROVED MINUTES – March 11, 2021 Church Council meeting.

Pastor called the meeting to order at 6:40 pm. and opened with a prayer.

Those in attendance meeting were Pastor Deb, Phyllis, Alan, Rhonda,  Lori, Carmel, Janell, Jan, Steve

Pastor’s Time: The new church leadership role was presented. There are still spots that names could be filled in but it is hard to fill spots in the time of COVID.

The Secretary’s report was approved M/S/C Carmel/Steve

Financial Secretary’s report was approved M/S/C Janell/Carmel

Treasurer’s report were approved as presented M/S/C Jan/Phyllis

Finance Committee: The stewardship results are about a third of last year’s pledges.  Not sure if it is that it was done in the new year or not being in the building or if it is the effects of COVID.  There will be ongoing discussion on our financial situation.

SPPRC:  A personnel issue worked its way out. Time off for Pastor has been approved.  Janell’s 16 years  as custodian was recognized with a card and gift card and a thank you received.

Trustees: There is an issue with the sump pump, tweaking the new TV in the sanctuary, curtain rods need to be hung –  things will be worked on this Saturday.  The AED is here and hung on the wall.

Christian Education: Is not meeting tonight. The time and day needs to be changed to accommodate a new work schedule. 7-12 activities are planned for this Sunday with Grace, Calvary, and St Mary’s from 3:30-5:30. We will be joining this group as well for VBS this summer. Also we are joining Grace, Calvary, and St Mary’s for some online and in person activities –

WICS: Purchased Pizza, beverages and fruit for the vaccination workers for one day. Thank you Carmel, Gayle and Ruth.

Missions: Haven’t met recently

Memorials:  New banners are getting picked out, a new vacuum was purchased as well as stamps.

Technology: The new TV is up and working, things are coming together.

Worship: The question,  “Do we need a monthly worship meeting?” was brought up. There was some talk, yes no maybe?  After some discussion a vote was taken and we will have in person worship starting for Palm Sunday, also Maundy Thursday and onward.

Praise Team will tape 2-3 hymns and special music for Sunday worship and it will be shown on the TV.

Men’s Club:  Is not meeting.

The church’s Facebook is still not on line and they can’t figure out why.

M/S/C Carmel/Janell to adjourn at 7:20 pm.

Next meeting Thursday April 8, 2021 at 6:30 pm.

Respectfully submitted,

Janell Anderson, Council Secretary
