MEETING CONGREGATIONAL NEEDS: COMMITTEES & TEAMS, BUT ALSO CONNECTION & PURPOSE

At our last meeting, the Governing Board talked a bit about how we meet congregational needs. When we had a Program Council, founding new committees to address congregational areas fell to the representatives. It wasn’t a perfect system, but it did seem to alleviate some of the pressure on the Board to address everything. There is now a gap, and several areas need revisiting and addressing.

Additionally, an auction and a pledge team need to be formed and begin working towards successful stewardship efforts.
