The Session called congregational meetings for the Nominating Committee to present Shirley Rufty as a candidate for deacon (see bio on page 5), filling the vacated position held by Shannon Taylor. Congregational meetings will be held at the 11am service on December 3 and December 17 for her nomination and election.
The elders also examined and approved seven inquirers for membership (see bios on page 6). A commission was set up to examine a number of additional inquirers who were absent. There was a brief review of financial and committee reports that yielded no motions or recommendations.
Tom Norwood from Horizons Stewardship then presented the results of our feasibility study for a capital campaign. Its results led to a reasonable belief that our church could succeed in a campaign to raise between $2-$2.5 million dollars over the next three years. The Session will make several decisions regarding a campaign at its November 29 meeting. Rev. Norwood finished by presenting five recommendations that would help us move forward toward our goals that were tabulated during the study.
