This Sunday November 1 is our annual all church business meeting and luncheon. It is worth spending a moment to explain what that means, since a "business meeting" can carry assumptions about people in suits in board rooms.
While this is certainly an important meeting, all are welcome and members are urged to attend. Lunch will even be provided. So the real question is why you wouldn't come to the meeting. Now to get down to business.
After worship in the sanctuary on Sunday November 1 we will meet in the chapel. Once everyone is settled with lunch we will discuss hopes and dreams for the upcoming year. A crucial part of this is going over the proposed church operating budget for 2016. But there will be more than discussion. Voting to approve this proposed budget will also occur during this meeting. There will then be another meeting in February where we will vote to confirm this proposed budget.
The Annual Appeal will also be launched on Sunday.
So join us for lunch and discussion on steering the direction of the church during the upcoming year.
