This has been a year for flexibility, but our mission has not
changed. We need to concurrently see
what missions might be effective now and what we need to set our sights on for
I previously recommended that we combine Walk A Block and
Love Ambush #2 but I don’t think we will have the people dedicated to the
walking task. We still have a chance to
make connections while people are out on 31 October 2020.
I recommend that we have a Love Ambush #2 (Logistics Only
Version). This would entail ordering
about $250 worth of Christian pencils, cross necklaces, Jesus Loves You items
and various other reminders of who God is and who we are—people called to love
one another. We also have wristbands, gospels,
and videos. We could put these out the
last two weeks of October and let the congregation take what they might give
away at their doors or as they walk with their kids around the town. Leftovers could be consolidated for use in
Chewy Tuesdays bags in 2021.
I don’t want to do something just because we have done
something for over a decade. I want to
do something because we can still make Face-to-Face connections and talk about
God’s love and his call to follow Jesus.
That we order $250 worth of give away items for the congregation to use
on 31 October 2020.
Following Kathy Stegall’s Backpack Ministry Report, I
recommend that we authorize the Treasurer to issue a check to Kendra Walker for
the balance of this year’s budgeted amount for the specific purpose of
purchasing school supplies at off-season prices to better prepare us for 2021.
That the Treasurer issue a check to Kendra Walker for the balance
remaining of the 2020 backpack funds.
The budgeted amount was $1500.
Attendance is maintaining at 60+. The computer is operating with some glitches
on music transfer.
Broadcast set up in the front of the sanctuary seems to be
acceptable to the congregation.
We have a few new faces and want to make sure we get to know
I will send out a draft liturgist list for 2021 soon.
Nothing was prepared for Sunday school classes to move up.
No recognition was given. Agenda item to
see if we even want to attempt this in the future.
This was my idea but if nobody is interested, I won’t press
