April session news
The April Session meeting had perfect attendance, again. There was not much action, but a lot of talk. Some of the concerns were/are to increase the number of our church family, both young and old. One item was/is, when the older people are gone (not vacationing), is our church going to keep going? Session is open to any suggestions for growth.We lost two of our members the first week of April. Our oldest member in time, Priscilla Cook passed away on April 3rd and Jim Riley on April 5th. Jim was Priscilla’s daughter, Sonja’s best friend.
The church treasurer, Donna Davis, reported expenses from January 1st through April 7th.
It was approved for the youth to have a 50/50 raffle with 50% of the “sales” going to the youth programs and activities and 50% to the lucky ticket holder.
Much credit was given to the 125th Anniversary Committee. The committee worked hard on all of the activities. Thank you to everyone who served on the committee and to those who helped out, even though they were not on the committee.
