Dear Friends,

This past Sunday we had our annual meeting.  This meeting is set to approve the 2019 budget and to elect officers to serve on our two boards - our Session and our Corporate Board.  When a person is on the Session they are called Elders.  The Session is responsible for worship, ministries, missions, any and everything involving the church and serving God's people.  The Corporate Board has the responsibility of maintaining the buildings, the grounds, and the house across the street.  Just to know we have two budgets - An ecclesiastical budget which the Session maintains and a Corporate budget.  These two budgets are separate and independent.  All Sunday morning offerings support our budget for 2019 which is $648,000.  Corporate Board's budget is $141,000 which is financed through the Christmas Gala, facility rentals, and bequests.  Here are the newly elected officers for our Session: Jonathan Daniels, Celeste Koster, Margo Klein, and Craige Ayscough-Clarke.  For Corporate Board is Ray Williams, Maggie King, and Edd Helms.  I look forward to what these men and women will bring to our church leadership team. 

I hope you all have a blessed week and I look forward to seeing you all this Sunday in worship.  God Bless.
