Your elders met in Session and began with prayer and a short devotion. We approved a timetable to implement our new Ministry Team Structure. We will recruit and train coaches in January, identity and train ministry leaders in February, and educate the congregation in March, and then implement the changes in April. We discussed budget issues, potential new officers and the watch-care elder list. We interviewed a candidate for a possible pastoral intern position with an emphasis on youth ministry. We erased 18 former members from the rolls. Many have moved away years ago and a few are no longer attending with us. We prayed for the needs of the congregation.
