Midweek Update – January 16, 2018

Session Report from Elder Fred Clary
Session met on Thursday, January 10th at 6:15pm. We were joined by the Moderator (Spokesperson) of the Presbytery of The Twin Cities (PTCA), Rocky Rockenstein. Rocky is engaging with every church in our Presbytery to determine how the Presbytery can assist and equip us in reaching our vision for our church. We had a lively and intimate sharing of ideas and concepts. Rocky brought the 5 questions below and I am going to ask that all community members carefully think on how you would answer these questions.
1. Where do you see hope, energy, and vitality in your congregation's ministries?
2. What are the most significant obstacles to your congregation's ministries?
3. Have you collaborated with other congregations or the Presbytery in your ministries?
4. How can the Presbytery partner with or help you in coming years?
5. How would someone in your community answer this question: How would you describe Edgcumbe Church in one word or a few words?
After Rocky left, the Session discussed building maintenance on the electrical system and flooring. Also, preparations for the annual meeting which is in three weeks. Session is looking forward to the congregation’s replies to the above questions (which we will discuss at the Annual Meeting on February 3). –Fred Clary

Annual Meeting: February 3
Each year we gather on one Sunday early in the year to review the previous year, take stock of our life together, approve pastors’ call and salaries for the coming year, eat and celebrate together. Our Annual Meeting this year will be on February 3, both during and after worship on that Sunday morning with a potluck brunch! If anyone has a report to submit for the Annual Report, the time to do so is right now!
