Unfortunately, I missed the first part of the meeting because of some assistance with irrigation my neighbor was in need of, due to his nearly blind eyesight condition. Most of the action took place before I had arrived and I thank Larry Cary for taking the meeting minutes up until I had gotten there.
As usual, we have our special meeting of the congregation in November to elect Elders, Deacons, and two members of the congregation to serve on the 2017 nominating committee. This is the only business for the meeting as stated in the call. The date is November 20, 2017 following worship. Any other business or concerns can be brought up at the regular meeting which is usually the last of January giving time to get the treasurer’s books closed out and ready for a report. Any concern may be brought up. We hope they are positive, but if negative, WE WANT TO KNOW ABOUT IT. Annual reports are due by December 31, except the treasurer’s and the auditor’s. Some reports can be turned in before the 31st, as business is already completed. So, lets make it easy on our faithful secretary and not wait until the last minute.
On November 13, 2016 at 3:00 PM, the Singers of the Southwest Choral group will give a concert of traditional sacred music in our church, as described in detail on page 5, of this newsletter.
We have two new members, Steve and Sabrina Burt. Look for more information about them in this newsletter.
The Pastor’s Deacons’ and all committee reports were received.
The next Session Meeting is November 14th at 5:00 PM.
Ken Johnson, Clerk of Session
