A VIEW FROM THE BELFRY

Greetings from your belfry bat!  How many of you know what the church conference is?  How many of you know when it is?  The when is September 10, 2015, at 6:00 pm unless you are a member of the Staff-Parish Committee; for those people, it begins at 5:30 pm with a meeting with the District Superintendent, Elbert Dulworth.  The what is a meeting of the membership of the church which is held annually at which church business is conducted, such as electing committee members for the coming year, deciding what the minister’s salary will be, and the like.  If you would like to be part of making decisions regarding the running of this church for the next year, please come!  All are welcome, and all members of the church have the right to vote on issues pertaining to the church leadership.  You can express your concerns and opinions as we deal with the business of the church, and you have a chance to meet the district superintendent.  We also sing a little, pray a little, and usually hear a few words from the district superintendent and often from someone from the local church.  It’s not as boring as you may think a business meeting would be!  Why not come and see what it’s all about this year?
