The following items were discussed at the Session Meeting held on October 19, 2014:

  • The minutes of the September 10th Session meeting were approved.
  • The 40th Anniversary of New Hope Church was discussed.  The Wednesday Night Supper was well attended and it was great hearing stories of the founding of our church.  The Strengthening Committee will report back to Session with recommendations for the February 23rd anniversary.
  • The Session had a preliminary discussion of budget issues for the rest of 2014.  It was decided that we would put a hold on the expenditure of funds except for the general maintenance of the building and grounds until we call a new pastor.
  • Session is still looking for an adult or student to work with our older youth.

  • The Outreach Committee reported that the Snack Pack program is on track and thanks everyone who contributes to the project.
  • The Session discussed the possibility of reducing the number of members on the Session and revamping the committee organization.  This will be discussed in full at the November meeting.

  • Marilyn Suber was elected as our representative to the Presbytery meeting on November 11th.
