Old Business:

Lyle Jones asked about the church sign, by hwy 5. John mentioned that the state said we can have a 8x8 directional sign, no yearly fee. We need to provide a sign design so that they can approve it from state.

Lyle Jones asked about floor colors. Jim Clary said his son will be here with floor color samples to pick from. Jim Clary said August 1st or the 8th we need enough help to move and prepare to have the floors done.

John Stewart asked about the position of Awanas. Karen said she talked to the Lamine Association about the program Orange and the difference from Awanas. Michele Chorpening said who ever does this needs to keep on top of the records. Much discussion, on concerns and conflicts. Jenny Riggs made a motion to continue with Awanas, seconded by Cheryl Jones. Voted and passed      

Jim Clary’s son brought forth floor colors, everyone took a look. Mike Fahrer made a motion on floor color sand, seconded by Vickie Locke. Voted and passed. Jim Clary discussed the floor maintenance, mild soap and water, no bleach, maybe in 5 yrs can do a stain guard, cost about 25c a sq ft. you won't see the wear and tear on it, if we get a stain on just give Jim Clary a call. 

Mike Fahrer asked about the Lamine Association. Lyle Jones said Russ Slocum from the association came and spoke with the church on June 26th. Karen Moore talked to Russ about camp and he helped her get scholarship for 2 girls. Lyle Jones said the association had to make adjustments.

Voted and passed for the money to be taken out of the carpet fund. The pews will be cleaned on July 18th.

John Stewart said George Fields had given a pancake air compressor, and believes it is missing. Carol Firestone said it may have been moved to the shed. John Stewart said we looked but didn't see it, let me know if anyone knows anything about it. 

Darron Locke asked if we are going to have an evening church service, since we have VBS on Sunday, if so he would like to know so he can be prepared. Cheryl Jones made a motion to cancel service, seconded it by Carol Firestone. Voted and passed. 3 opposed to cancel Sunday evening service.

Karen Moore made a motion about Darron Locke as a Deacon. John Stewart said we should have done that in May. Karen Moore said with no pastor it would help the other 2 Deacons. John asked Darron Locke if he's ordained, and Darron Locke said yes he is. John read the bylaws on the deacons. We need to have a pastor first before we can do that. Karen said she withdraws her motion, since we have no pastor at this time.  

Karen Moore said with the music ministry we need new equipment and sound system. So should we do a fund raiser or do donations to raise the money. We could use the Audio and visual account, we need 2 monitors, speakers. It was less than $1000. Karen Moore will have information on this next business meeting.

John Stewart told the guy it is for sale $5000, and got the information on it. Voted and passed to not rent the shack.
