Business Meeting Dec 2016

Business Meeting

December 11, 2016

 Ten members were present.  We sang hymn #23 and Pastor James had us form two groups to pray for our church, pastor and Dorothy’s family.  Pastor James then called the meeting to order.

 John Stewart made a motion to accept the minutes; seconded by Carol Firestone. Passed.  Dyan Dunsworth made a motion to accept the treasurer’s report; Carol Firestone made a second.  There were corrections by Bradley to the designated funds balance sheet. Change the heading from October to November; designated funds sheet building carpet should be $970.77, which changes total designated funds to $44,933.64 and balance if all designated funds are spent to $15,730.81.  The above motion was accepted with corrections.
