The following items were discussed at the Session Meeting held on April 14, 2015:

         The Session meeting began with a devotional by Lizz Savard. 

          The PNC presented a report.

      The PNC has had several meetings since our last Session Meeting.

      We have received approximately 30 candidate referrals from the Presbytery.

       The committee has reduced that number to 9.

       The committee is currently checking out candidates online.

       There were no immediate standouts so the committee will advertise the position.

           The Session has initiated a church audit as required by the Presbytery.

        The audit has not been done in two years and it is important, with a new pastor coming, that it be completed now.

Building & Grounds reported on the condition of the front area of the church.

       The cross on the building is in need of renovation.

       The light on the sign is working again.

       The front area is badly in need of new landscaping.  This will be a major project.

         Ron Young is in the process of getting estimates.

         It is important to improve the appearance of the grounds if we are to attract a quality pastor and new members.

                     The Worship Committee reported that planning for the Taize services this summer continues.

                     The Education Committee reported that planning for the Vacation Bible School is underway.


                     The next Session meeting will be May 17th at 6;30 PM.
