Thanks to everyone who attended our congregational meeting after church services. Thanks to Sam Melton for making arrangements so that we could make good decisions on full stomachs.
The assembled members passed a carefully planned budget (thank you, Ann Maclaine!) and invested in our future by electing to extend Rev. Justin McCreary an 18 month contract so that he may securely continue doing his important work within the church wales and out in the world. Discussion was insightful, supportive and helpful to our growth as people and a congregation. Thanks to Stacy Callender for her extensive institutional knowledge: an incredible boon to sitting president, and to Corey Melton, who kept us on schedule.
We are in a transition period: it’s so easy to look far off into the horizon and forget all the bumps and obstacles between us and our goals. Thank you all for being willing to support the work of this church.
With deep gratitude,
Deirdra Harris Glover
