See financial report for details. $12,000 or so from the Jumbo Sale. Since our balance is $11,619,
it’s clear that the funds were needed to be used already. Memorial gift coming that will likely be designated for the
roof. Mortgage/bills/salaries paid. Received a donation towards flower funds/Matt will receive.
Lead worship services, made 7 visits with members, attended 2 continuing education classes,
Confirmation Orientation with Abiding Savior and Atonement, God’s Work, Our Hands service project, which raised
$1,230.46 between our three churches, for Ralph Reeder. Also coordinated food shelf donations with Dickie and Judy.
Once we have a new Interim Pastor, we need to decide on the future of our food shelf. Helped with Jumbo Sale and
taught one of the confirmation classes at Abiding Savior.
