Council on Ministries minutes from July 15,2018

Our Council on Ministries meeting was held on July 15th at 4:00 p.m. in the Open Fellowship room. 

Appalachian Fair-  The church will continue to charge for fair parking but over the next four years, we will work toward the church funding the youth and will plan to use the parking money for missions.  Mark Reynolds will make a flyer to be given to each vehicle parked.  Help is needed for work on fair.  A sign up sheet will be in bulletin beginning July 22.

Visioning – A new team will be created with Eric Barnes as Chairman, Jerry Cassell as Co-Chairman.  Bryan, Amy, Dennis and David will be on this team.  All other teams will have a representative on the team.  

Summer Symposium – Ends August 16 which is the week before fair.  Plans are to go back to bible study and do the symposium again in the summer of 2019.

Nurture – Johnny Rose is getting his passenger license to drive the bus.  Peggy will be planning some trips as soon as he takes the driving test. If you have any suggestions as to places to visit, please contact Peggy.

Kitchen- We are on hold on the kitchen awaiting State of TN approval. 

Homecoming- We are planning to have Homecoming on September 30, 2018.  This is a 5th Sunday, which means the three services will combine into one service at 11am.  Plans are to have the choral department and orchestra from Milligan College in the morning followed by lunch.  Later that day, Jeff and Sheri Easter will give a concert at the church at 3:00 in the afternoon.  Both are free to the community.

Outreach – Don Sexton reported on the missions team.  They had a meeting last week and they are trying to reorganize and they need more members. They have a form to fill out showing mission work which shows the cost so the congregation can see where the money is going.  Mark will post this in the newsletter.

Worship – Pastor Dennis asked the worship team to think about ways that we can have three services without feeling like three separate churches.

COM Retreat – This is set for August 26th.  It will be held in the Open Fellowship Class.  Lunch will be provided at 12:00.  Meeting begins at 12:30 and should be over by 4:00.
