Rev.  Jan Bihl

Thank you to all who attended the January 23rd Congregational Meeting. Our Treasurer shared the good news that financially we ended 2013 on a positive note.

The Finance Committee presented the 2014 budget, a summary of which will be included with your Income Tax receipt.

Other business at the meeting included minor amendments to our Governance Structure chart in order to have it reflect our actual practice and an amendment to the Congregation Covenant, particularly as it applies to those in leadership positions.

Session presented an overview of our programming for the coming year including leadership events, Conversation Cafés (a way to meet others and share our stories in a safe manner through guided conversation in small groups), Elder-ing programs (Life Quest, Soul Quest and Oasis), the Hospitality Project and intergenerational programming.
