Matters of the Heart
Happy September! I must admit to being surprised at how mild our summer was.
I need to remind everyone of those items, to which we must give attention. The Voters' Assembly will be in mid-November, so it is time to start preparing for all those things, which will be needed then.
For starters, it is Budget Time. Each board or committee is responsible for submitting a proposal for funding in the 2018 calendar year.
Next up is the need for a volunteer or two. We need a nominating committee, to get nominations for all the boards and committees. It is important to get volunteers, who will help to staff these boards.
Also, we need all existing boards to write up their year-end report, for the Voters' Assembly packet. It is important for the congregation members to be able to read about where their offering dollars go and what is being accomplished.
There is still a lot of activity going on, around the church. Sunday School activities are gearing up. I have noticed some fall cleaning going on. There is always room for more helpers, so if you are wanting to feel more of a part of the church, find a place to volunteer!
So to summarize, we have opportunities for everyone to participate and encourage that sense of belonging. Have a great autumn!
God bless you and your family.
