Church Council Recap April 2020

This isn't an official record of the Church Council. It's my account of the events. Part of the church's goals this year is to be more transparent with activities and make it easier for people to know what's going on. If you'd like to see the official minutes, please contact the church office for them when they are complete.

Tuesday, April 28th, the Church Council met on Zoom. The last meeting was on February 3rd. We're excited that 48 devices joined the call, bringing the total to 52 people present.

David Mobley - Finance Committee Chair

It was a very uplifting meeting. David reported on our finances. We are in a great place thanks to our church's faithfulness in giving during this crisis. The staff has also been working hard to cut down all unnecessary spending. Click here to read David's words on the PPP funds.
