Meeting Notes: Church Council

The Church Council met last Tuesday night, May 28, 2013. Financial reports for January through March were available and it was noted that the balance of the general fund has been increasing. There was some discussion about using money left over from the Stephen Ministry to pay travel expenses for lay people who visit shut-ins and those living in care homes.

A summary of the office hours of various churches in Coffeyville was presented, we have fewer office hours than some and more than others. Becky Dobbins, chair of the PPR Committee, updated the Council on the pastoral transition to Nicole Schwartz.

Jared Dobbins, chair of the Board of Trustees reported on the landscaping plans for the east side of the church, the gate that will be installed in the east basement entryway and the plans to replace all the flooring int he parsonage.

There was a brief discussion on the damage the recent hail storms did (and did not do) to the parsonage and the church building. The final item was the approval of the continuation of the current accountable reimbursement policy for Pastor Nicole Schwartz.
