7. Congregational Meeting:
June 7, 2010 a Congregational Meeting was held to appoint a ‘transitional team’ needed to look for and work with an ‘interim minister’ and to consider the recommendations from the Options for the Future Committee. At this meeting Shirley Aston, Heidi Potter, Darrel Howell and Brenda Ellison were appointed to the transitional team.
Ken Kay (chair of the Options Committee) reviewed the options for our church building with a recommendation to repair the current building. After much discussion –and several motions the final motion to build a new church on a new site accepting Musgrave’s offer of property was carried.
