Session Notes for December 10, 2017

On Sunday evening, December 10,  our “elders elect” (Session Class of 2020) shared their statements of faith with the current session. Those joining the session in January are Kathleen Menard, Jason White, Greg Brooks, Carol Robinson, and Chip Young. The session voted unanimously to sustain the elders examination and approve them for ordination and installation. The “outgoing” elders then offered words of encouragement to the session and especially the new class.

The session also said “thank you” to the elders that are leaving active service on session after serving a three-year term. They are Guy Holbrook, Amy Monroe, Deke Shepler, Melvin Meares, and Christy Taylor. Session then recognized and thanked Pat Cherry and Jay Crane. Pat has served as our clerk for the past two years and Jay, of course, has served faithfully as our Treasurer for many years. Jay was elected Treasurer for another term of three years.

Session discussed and unanimously approved the proposed 2018 budget. The budget will be presented to the congregation on January 7th and copies will be available to anyone interested in the church office.

Finally, session called a congregational meeting for Sunday morning, January 7th, for the purpose of presenting the 2018 budget and approving the pastors’ terms of call.
