Board Update - February 2016

Feb 29, 2016 in Get Involved by Heather

January is often a busy time for our board and our committees, and this year was no different. In December and January our finance committee does a tremendous amount of work to put together our annual budget, with input and assistance from the committees and from our board. This important effort requires extra meetings for both the finance committee and the board. I’m looking forward to sharing the results of this work at our annual meeting next week. 

Our board have also devoted a lot of time and wonderful positive energy to our visioning process. Led by the very capable facilitation skills of Rev Kellie, we’ve considered the blessings and challenges of our mission, our congregation and our building, and have reflected on what this might mean for the future of our building and our ministries. We’ve worked very hard on this process - and still have lots of work to do! I’m excited at how our board is working together, and focusing our efforts as a team on our mission and vision. 

Our M&P Committee are hard at work searching for a permanent church administrator to support our ministers and the work of our congregation. As a board, we’ve reviewed and discussed the job description and the hiring criteria that will help us identify the right candidate. This work will continue for as long as it takes to find the right person! Please keep the hiring committee in your prayers.

I am very excited to be able to share some very positive news about our Capital Campaign, at the Annual General Meeting - and I’m not going to spoil the surprise with a preview in my board update! I hope you can join us at the AGM to hear the good news in person.

Our AGM this year will be a BYOL (bring your own lunch). Coffee and tea will be available in the narthex. Please don’t forget to bring a lunch and/or snack for both the information session and the AGM. I look forward to seeing you at both of these meetings, which are vitally important to the work of our church!

Blessings,


Heather
