See financial report for details. Completed Pastor Julie’s exit paperwork and getting Pastor Karri
set up. Mortgage/bills/salaries paid. Had over $11,000 in the Jumbo Sale reflecting in the larger balance. Our receipts
are lower than our expenses so we’re using this money.
We welcomed Pastor Karri to her first Council Meeting. She has met with Pastor Ryan from Abiding
Savior. Will be attending a theological conference. Wants to sit down with each council member and any leaders in
the church to discuss the direction of COG. Pastor Karri is set up for 34 hours a week and we hope to overlap her
hours with Dawn’s for potential office hours. Will be discussing the future of the food shelf with Judy and Gladys.
