                          SESSION HIGHLIGHTS - January 2019

The Week of Prayer for Christian Unity runs January 21-27.  The Session Fund will be giving $150 to help with expenses for the lunches following the noonday services.

The Property and Finance Committee has begun its budget-striking meetings.  The budget will be presented to Session in February, and subsequently voted on by the congregation at the Annual Meeting.  The date of the Annual Meeting has not been determined, as yet.

Work continues on determining whether or not damage was done to the foundations of the church following the basement flood two years ago.  Session thanks the P&F Committee for its continued work on this issue.  As well, work on the updated venting in the kitchen is underway, and will soon be completed. 

The Christian Education Committee and the Human Resources Team have been working diligently to find a new Christian Education Coordinator.  Resumes have been received and will be reviewed in the coming weeks.  The aim is to have a new CE Coordinator in place by February or March.  We give thanks for the many years of ministry provided by Christy Cobb, and we will be thanking her for her service at a worship service in January.

Planning for the Backyard Mission Project has begun.  A team from First Presbyterian and First CRC will go on air to advertise the project.  A few nominations have already been sent to us. The date for the BYM has not been determined.

Rev. Mike is leading a course on the Sacraments on Saturday, Jan 19 for elders serving in Pastoral Care who have applied to be able to administer communion to shut ins.  As well, people in part-time ministry under the supervision of an Interim Moderator are attending this class.  This change in polity was approved by General Assembly.

Session approved the upcoming baptism of Emmett William Piercey, son of Todd and Stephanie Piercey.
