Annual Metting


          Jon leading our Annual Meeting                        Jeremy, Al and Janet                            Janet and Paula at the Synod Conference


          The 2013 Annual meeting was held on January 26, 2014. We had 45 members in attendance. We went over 2013 year budget and set the new budget for next year. Some of the topics discussed were Iringa Hope and Special Projects such as the stain glass windows and the parking lot. We are now fund raising to have the parking lot repaired. A line item was added to the budget for the Iringa Hope project. There was an election of officers for the church council. Alan Kobow for Vice President, Janet Botnen for Treasure, and Jeremy Weber for Trustee. Paula and Jan are attending Synod conferences to help elect a new Bishop.
